A Thuismitheoiri / Dear Parents,
We hope all of our pupils have had a nice and spooky Halloween break and are all well rested and ready for action. We’ll have a busy 7 weeks ahead leading to the Christmas holidays – how time flies! So, without further ado, below is the news for the month of November.
Is mise le meas / Yours sincerely,
Ciarán Caulfield, Priomhoide
• Parents Association: congratulations and best wishes for the year ahead to the committee and Ms.Anoinette Connolly who was recently re-elected as chairperson of the Kilcoskan NS Parents Association.
• Christmas Cards: Tomorrow, your child will bring home a sample Christmas card which they have designed. This will be accompanied by an order form and full instructions for how to order the cards. Thanks to our Parents Association for organising this.
• Harvest Fair: thanks to all who came and supported our recent Harvest Fair which was a great success. All money raised will be spent developing our school garden. Our garden committee held its first meeting (for adults) before mid-term. Our pupils will have an input this month, in advance of our next meeting. When the time comes, we will be asking for lots of volunteers to help with the digging and the hard labour!!! At the moment, we’re still very much at the planning stage.
• Well done to our 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th class pupils who made our super spooky Halloween House of Horrors, which was enjoyed by all before mid-term. Thanks also to all who helped.
• Head lice: please continue to regularly check your child’s hair as it seems to be an ongoing issue. Attached is the Kilcoskan NS head lice policy and you are asked to return the completed slip to the school.
• Christmas Carols Concert: the school will host a Christmas carols concert on Tuesday December 16th. The time and venue for this concert will be confirmed closer to the date.
• After school activities: a timetable for after school activities for this half term will be issued to our pupils this week.
• Set-down area: please continue to drive with care in the school set-down area. Also, please remind your child that they should never find themselves walking in the set-down area as it is dangerous.
