School Athletics training

All pupils from First to Sixth classes are presently doing Cross-Country training at school. Please encourage participation as it makes a noticeable difference in fitness levels after a few weeks.  If anyone is finding it too difficult, feel free to do it at a walking pace.

Music Assembly

Second to Sixth classes have begun weekly Music assemblies with Mrs Gallagher. Please practice daily as ‘Practice makes perfect!.’

Child Protection and Risk Protection

All families should be in receipt of a copy of the Kilmacrennan NS Child Protection and Risk Protection Policy.

Please inform us if you have not yet received your copy. Copies are also available for perusal on the School website.

September School Newsletter

Dear Parent,

I wish to welcome you all for our school year.  All children appear to have settled well and are looking forward to a new term.  Twenty Junior Infant pupils have enrolled this year and we wish them well.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of a few issues:

The school opens daily at 9.10am daily and supervision of pupils is provided from that time only onwards. School finishes daily at 2pm for Junior and Senior Infants, and at 3pm for all other classes.  No responsibility is accepted for children outside official school times. {For this week, Junior Infants will finish at 12 noon but will remain until 2pm from Monday, 10th September onwards}.

Please label all items of school uniform, lunch boxes, school books etc.

We request that we are at all times provided with up to date contact numbers, particularly with reference to mobile numbers.

We ask that you pay particular attention to road safety issues and request that your child is accompanied to and from the school gates. Parents are to park along the Main Road, observing normal parking regulations, paying attention to double yellow lines etc. The school car park is for staff and bus parking only.

We request that the school uniform is worn at all times, with non-branded grey tracksuit bottoms worn on PE days only. Also, we respectfully request that our Healthy Lunches policy is adhered to.

Please note that we have been informed that Confirmation of our Sixth Class is scheduled for Sunday, 10th February at 12.30pm.

Yours sincerely,

John Devenney.
