Visit from Rosslare Europort Customs Dog

4th, 5th and 6th class pupils were delighted to receive a visit from one of the Rosslare Harbour customs officers today, 5th April, …. and Defor the dog. The children were delighted to hear about how customs dogs are trained, their working day and their ‘professional’ life. We would like to thank them very much for a very informative visit.

Autism Awareness Day 2019

The school celebrated National Autism Awareness Day by holding a special assembly on Tuesday 2nd April. The children signed while singing along to the song ‘This is Me’. They wore blue clothes to school and each child received a special ‘blue nose’. Thank you for the donation of €1 per family, proceeds will be given to our Special Awareness Committee.

Clothes Recycling

Spring cleaning in Kilrane and Rosslare Harbour was uppermost on the agenda in many households last weekend. The clothes collection was very successful and the bags were collected on Wednesday. Once again we would like to thank you all for your support.

World Down Syndrome Awareness Day

Due to the Confirmation of 6th class pupils being held today (21/03/2019) with Bishop Denis Brennan in St. Patrick’s Church, Rosslare Harbour, we will celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Day on Friday 22nd March 2019.

Many educational activities will take place on Friday which outline the inclusive nature of Kilrane National School and the support we all give to our children with additional needs.

Don’t forget that children wear odd socks to school on Friday!

Survey of School Hours

A letter to parents/guardians was sent home on 11th March 2019 regarding change of school hours survey. Deadline for this survey ends 3pm, Friday 15th March.

Shoebox Appeal 2018

We received this thank you poster at school this week and thought you would like to see how the shoeboxes were distributed this year. As well as our appreciation to everyone who participated within the Kilrane NS community, we quote the message from Team Hope’s CEO, Peter Heaney:

“It has been a humbling experience to see how generous people have been across the country in 2018, sending over a quarter of a million gift filled shoeboxes to children living in poverty in 12 countries across Eastern Europe and Africa.

People from all over Ireland and all walks of life took part and helped in a plethora of different ways – from donating gift filled boxes, volunteering in checking centres, knitting gifts or helping load trucks. All of this tremendous effort has made an amazing difference to the 259,079 children who otherwise wouldn’t receive a present.”

Sacrament of Confession

A huge thank you to Fr. Desmond, Ms Stack, Ms Cummins and Mr Cousins for preparing the children for their First Confession. The children, as always, were excellent on the night singing their songs and saying their prayers. We cannot wait to see them all on the First Holy Communion day and we wish them well in their preparations. We know that they are working very hard and that they eagerly await their big day.

Our Parents Council were once again out in force this week making a tremendous contribution to the lives of the children in the school. After the First Confession ceremony in church our 40 children and their families were invited back to the school to a wonderful reception organised with efficiency and ease by members of the Parents Council. The cakes and buns were provided by parents of 1st class pupils and we would like to thank each and every one of you for your donation and to everyone who organised or helped in any way.

Pancake Tuesday

Pancake Tuesday is an amazing day in our school. A team of parents descend on the kitchen and start preparing. They arrive at 9am all set to go and have five pancakes on the go to cook and serve 350 pancakes within three hours! They are so organised that they have all the ingredients prepared and ready by 9:45 and off they go. Every child in the school gets a hot pancake with a variety of fillings. Children with allergies are not left out as there are also an array of gluten free and nut free pancakes available.

This day characterises all that is good about our great school, least of all giving children wonderful memories of special school days. Thank you to all who helped.
