First class parents are organising the communion party at the school after the Mass. Parents of 2nd class have been enquiring as to how many guests they can bring to the school so as to have some idea how many people to expect they are aiming to cater for approximately 6 adults per communion child.

Parent Association Update - May 2015

It's been a great year and it's not over yet!!! Huge thanks to all the parents, teachers and children of the school who have all worked together during this year of intense fundraising. So far, we have raised an incredible €18,469  to widen the access road to the school for the safety of our families and to fulfill our planning requirement for two new class rooms.

We  have minimal costs attached to running the PA and  (thanks again to the generosity of the schools parents)  low costs associated with the Confirmation and Communion etc.  We should still be able to contribute an incredible €18,000 plus to the project by the end of this term!!!

To date the school's Cake Sales have raised €2,212 and we have two left :
Rang 5 will help N Mhora with their sale on the 15th May 2015 (this coming Friday) and
Rang 6 will help N Beaga on the 11th June 2015.

Kinsale GAA Club Coffee Morning 16th May 2015

Kinsale GAA Club Coffee Morning 16th May 2015


There was a big mix-up with all the uniforms after the classes ended on Wednesday at drama. There were some uniforms left lying on the floor in the Temperance hall!  Denise (AKA Hannah’s Mam Rang 2) picked up whatever Gaelscoil Uniforms that were left and she will bring them into the school to Hilda on Thursday morning (7th May 2015).  The kids just went off home wearing their costumes and forgot about the uniforms!

I think other kids might have brought home other people’s uniforms by mistake – my own girl Beibhinn (Senior Inf) brought home somebody else’s Tracksuit and T-shirt!! And so her’s must be in somebodys else’s bag!!

If your children are involved in the Dramatricks/Konfident Kids Group – can you please check their Sports Uniforms to see if they have the right one or maybe they might have two of something by mistake.

We can sort out swapping the uniforms back at the school – Hilda does not mind if we use the school office to hand in/store the uniforms so we can all go through the bundle and get back our own ones.

Thanks a mill,

Emma (AKA Beibhinn’s Mam – Senior Infs)
