Update November 2020

Wonderful Welcome at the Gates!
It was a joy and privilege for parents to volunteer as stewards at the gates during the first month the school was re-opened. Their bright and cheerful faces were a warm and delightful way to start and end the school day. A HUGE thank you to the parents who were part of this effort!
Welcome to Junior Infant Parents
The Parents Association Committee creatively re-created the annual cuppa and biscuits with Junior Infant parents on their first day of school. Instead of chatting (and crying) over tea and coffee in the sports hall, committee members handed out welcome notes with bags of biscuits for parents to bring home after dropping their students to their classrooms.
Charity Fundraisers…Thank you!
In these unprecedented times of gobal pandemic, we were so pleased to see the effort and generosity of giving during our most recent charity fundraisers. KNS families raised at least €457 during GOAL Jersey Day and €428 during Trick or Treat for Temple Street. Go raibh míle maith agat!

Welcome to KNS!

The Parents Association Committee would like to give a warm welcome back to all our families at KNS as well as a welcome aboard to our new families. We look forward to meeting you at the upcoming curriculum meetings and our AGM (date TBA). Events leading up to the mid-term break include Celebration of Culture’s Day and Halloween Parade/Trick or Treat for Temple Street. See you all soon!

Outdoor Classroom

Planting & Painting in our Outdoor Classroom

There have been lots of fairies working away on our Outdoor Classroom and we have noticed some exciting changes.  We have a feeling that over the year there are going to more changes to the Outdoor Classroom.  We took advantage of the dry weather today and got outside to put chalk paint on the ply-wood and plant some winter bedding that was very kindly donated by B n Q.  Thanks very much to the SNA team and the PA for all their help with the planting and painting.
