Dear Parents/Guardians and of course Boys and Girls,


What a most unusual week we have had these past few days. It just goes to show you that life is constantly changing. I know that many adults and children have been very worried about the COVID-19 Virus, but like every other difficult time in the past, this too will pass. The important thing is to remember how very special each one of us is to one another and how special our families and friends are. At the end of the day, nothing else matters.

The teachers have all been working very hard putting together lots of work and resources for all the children in Kilmacanogue National School………, DON’T WORRY BOYS AND GIRLS, YOU WILL HAVE LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF WORK TO KEEP YOU GOING!!

On a serious note, please do not put yourselves or your children under pressure to complete the work sent to them. Do the best you can and that is all that any of us can do. All the teachers and myself want to do is to be a help to each of you in any way we can.

I will be in school everyday at various times, so if any of you needs to come to the school, let me know. I was in school today from 12:30pm for a number of hours and a number of parents called to the school collecting books etc. Please feel free to contact me via the school email address as well as phoning 01 2861934. Keep an eye out for the school Twitter @kilmacanoguens for lots of updates and websites which will be useful.

Here are some thoughts for you to enjoy and consider:                                 

“You’re off to great places, today is your day. 

Your mountain is waiting, so get on
your way.”

(Dr. Seuss)

“No one is perfect – that’s why pencils have erasers.”

“Optimism is a happiness magnet.

If you stay positive good things and good people will be drawn to you.”

And now what you have all been waiting for, Miss Murray’s joke!

What do you call a pig that knows karate?……….A Pork Chop!!!

Look after yourselves and one another. We are all here to help and to support one another and remember ALL WILL BE WELL.
