Wednesday Newsletter September 23rd 2020



Dear Parents/Guardians and of course Boys and Girls,

We are now into our 4th week back to school and time is really flying by with the children working so hard at their school-work as well as being happy to be back in school with their friends.

This week’s newsletter will contain lots of photos showing the lovely Art-Work being done by all the classes throughout the school .

Just a few reminders first:

  • Could the Insurance Forms be returned asap by this coming Friday 25th please and then the school can organise the insurance for all the children going forward?
  • Also, could you return the forms with the contact details in the case of an emergency asap?
  • And, could you read the letter that is in your child’s bag (or was given to your child to take home) and tick the boxes where required and return to the school also, asap, so that we can start organising the Mathletics and Reading Eggs’ programmes for the children?
  • Please check out the new Admission Policy and the extra pieces of information relating to COVID on our school website

Aoife McGrath from McGrath Flood Irish Dancing School has asked us to let you know that her Irish Dancing classes will take place every Wednesday afternoon in the GAA hall. Needless to say all protocols will be followed in line with HSE and guidelines regarding COVID-19. For more details and information, please contact Aoife on 0857375833

It is great to welcome Jackie Kinch back to day who will resume her GAA training with the Senior Classes over the next few weeks. 6th Class were delighted to be chosen today and hopefully every Wednesday, they will be working with Jackie.

With thanks to Fr Hyacinth and to Celia Flynn and Breda Connolly for all their help the 6 Confirmation Celebrations took place over the weekend in St Mochonog’s Church, with 4 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. It was lovely seeing all the children from last year’s 6th Class. The ceremonies were really beautiful and very special and unique. We all really miss them here in Kilmacanogue National School. We look forward to seeing them when they visit us very soon.
