I hope you are all well and continuing to engage with school work, even during the lovely weather. Do make sure to get plenty of exercise and play-time and the school work-load should be getting a little lighter over the coming weeks. The class teachers have shown me some examples of your lovely work and it is certainly of a high standard.

We wish to thank Cathal Doherty for forwarding a link to view the Confirmation Mass and this link is available in the Sixth Class drop-bar.

We will once again operate a Book Rental Scheme for Senior Classes – Third to Sixth class- and individual class teachers will post book lists next week. We will also schedule times for each class to return this year’s School Rental Books, Musical Instruments etc in June. This will allow us to prepare books for our anticipated return to school in August. School Reports will also issue in mid-June.

You may be aware that we will now have seven mainstream teachers for our eight classes. This will involve the splitting of a class; we will provide you with the details of class and teacher allocations within the next fortnight or so. You made also have heard of a recent media announcement regarding the setting up of an ASD unit in the school. This is scheduled to start in time for the new school year and will cater for six pupils. It is planned to house this class in the vacant classroom. An extension to the building has been approved to cater for this additional classroom in the coming years.

The Board of Management recently drafted a new draft Enrolment Policy & Admissions Bill. This is available to view on our school website- in Parent Zone- and, in light of the Covid closure, we have extended the date for any submissions in regard to the policy to be submitted via email to kilmacrennanschool@eircom.net by June 14th.

Please free to contact me if you require any further information or if you have any queries.

Kind regards,

John Devenney.
