The Parents’ Association are holding a meeting in the School Hall tonight, Tuesday 28th March at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend.

We recently installed the final two Interactive Screens in our classroom. This is the tenth new screen installed in the last two years and has been funded via the School Digital grant, the ongoing sponsored walk fundraiser and a generous recent donation of €1650 by the Parents Association. We thank you for your support with the sponsored walk fundraiser and ask for any remaining cards to be returned this week. We hope to hold class led walks around the village this week.

The pupils have been busy on a number of fronts, including Wellbeing week activities, gymnastic lessons, Seachtain na Gaeilge, a visits to a Windmill Farm, sporting competitions and quizzes. We particularly congratulate our quiz teams on winning two separate quizzes last week. There was great excitement in winning the County Donegal Garda School Quiz competition (which started with 80 schools) on Tuesday last. This was followed by winning the Ulster Primary School’s Quiz title in Cavan on Thursday (which started out with around 300 teams). Well done to all.

We will host a visiting Science & Music performer in the school on Thursday 30 March (no charge involved).

The Kilmacrennan NS 5K Walk and Run will take place this year on Thursday 4th May at 7.30pm. We hope many of you will be able to participate or assist in organising the event. Feel free to spread news of the event to family, friends, neighbours etc and we will be in touch after the Easter Break.

We will close for the Easter holidays on Friday 31 March at 12 noon. We will hold an Easter Draw for a hamper and Easter Eggs on the day. Tickets are €2, or three for €5.

We will reopen on Monday 17 April.
