Dear Parents & Guardians, Please find below a list of recent and upcoming events. Kilchreest N.S. Table Quiz: There was an excellent turnout for our annual fundraising quiz held on Wednesday 23rd January.  This year we had a change of venue and we are very grateful to Sean Connolly and the staff of St. Brigid’s College for making their hall available to us. A number of schools have been in contact to compliment us on how well organised our quiz is.  For this we have to thank all our collectors, correctors and all our staff for helping out on the night.  Special thanks to our Infant teacher Ms. Kelly for co-ordinating the event.  The quiz raised approximately €1200, which will now be used to purchase readers for our new L.L.O. programme. Credit Union Quiz Teams: This year we entered 6 teams in the Credit Union table quiz in Loughrea.  Our teams performed very well with one of our U-13 and one of our U-11 teams finishing in 5th place in their respective competitions. Thanks to Ms. Keely for going to the quiz on the night and for preparing the children. Thanks to all the children who worked hard and gave up some of their break-times to prepare for the quiz. World Book Day: Is on Thursday 7th March.  Children can dress up as a character from their favourite book on that day. This ties in nicely with our Oral Language theme for the month “Characters”.  It would be very helpful if you had the time to listen to your child talk about their favourite character from a book they have read. Enrolments: We are now taking enrolments for September 2019. If you know anyone who might be interested in enrolling their child in the school, please ask them to contact the office on 091 840112. Best of Luck:  We would like to pass on our best wishes to the St. Thomas’ senior hurling team in the All- Ireland club semi-final vs Cushendall on Saturday. Swimming Lessons: Children from 3rd – 6th will commence swimming lessons on Wednesday 13th February for 7 weeks.  Thanks to all the parents who have agreed to help with the supervision.  We are still short...
