Newsletter October 5th

It is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to Tommy Brennan, Brigid Barrett and Geraldine Whyte last week. Please see the letter that Tommy has written to parents that was posted on Oct 3. As Tommy has said in his letter to parents, Brigid and Geraldine have been an integral part of our school for a long number of years. Brigid with her welcoming nature and quick wit was very popular with teachers, parents, children and anybody else who had reason to visit our school. Geraldine was caring, compassionate and always eager to nurture all of the children in her care. The one person not mentioned in the letter is Tommy himself. As he has done for the last 23 years Tommy always puts everyone else first. He has been the soul and heartbeat of our school during that time. His kind nature, sense of humour and attention to detail, have made our school the envy of many. While we haven’t had the opportunity to publically express our gratitude to them, we hope to be able to do so in the near future. Tommy has always talked about the excellent team that we have in this school and it is this relationship between teachers, parents and children that will allow us to continue to provide the best education and care to the students here. We wish Tommy, Geraldine and Brigid the very best in their retirement, consoled by the fact that they won’t be strangers and will always be very welcome in Scoil Niocláis Naofa.

We would like to congratulate Ciara Moran on her appointment as Deputy Principal. We hope that she will be very happy in her new role.

We would like to welcome our new school secretary, Christine Eames, to the school. We hope that she will have many happy years here.

Work to complete the path for our fairy trail continued during the week. Our thanks to Adrian Deering for all his help.

We were very fortunate to have Minister Simon Harris visit our school on Friday. It was great to be able to show him around and point out some of the needs that exist for our school and students. He had an opportunity to meet with some of our teachers and staff as well as some of our pupils. Our sincere thanks to Avril Cronin for making the visit possible.

County Photos are here on Friday 9th October to photograph the children.

Tuesday October 6th is National Grandparents’ Day and while we can’t acknowledge our grandparents in the school at this time, we would like them to know that they are in our thoughts.

Enrolment is now open for St. Kevin’s Community College and will close on 31st October.
