On Tuesday and Wednesday last, the pupils of Killoughteen NS put on a panto of Cinderella in the Desmond College. The boys and girls of all classes put on a great performance.
We would like to thank Kate Upton, (Over the Rainbow – School of Dance) who helped the staff put this production together. Kate you were a pleasure to work with and on behalf of the staff and children, we would like to say míle buíochas.
Sincere thanks to Vourneen Gavin Barry (Principal of Desmond College) and staff, John Upton, Antoin Fitzsimon, Madigans Bus Hire, parents and everyone who helped us to put on this show.
Killoughteen NS launched a fundraiser on the nights of the panto in conjunction with the announcement that we secured funding from the DES to build a school hall and a purpose built ASD class with a full suite of ancillary accommodation. We plan to begin the build in late spring of 2019. This is brilliant news for our school. To complete this job satisfactorily and to ensure that the school hall can serve the needs of our growing pupil population, we hope to raise an extra €50,000.
Our fundraiser has three elements.
1. Scratch cards based on the Ireland V England game in the Six Nations on February the 2nd. Scratch cards are €2 each and one lucky person will win €500.
2. Buy a Brick. We hope to have an official opening of the school next Christmas and we will use this event for the additional purpose of unveiling the Killoughteen National School Sponsorship wall. This affords an opportunity to all individuals, past pupils, families or businesses to have their names etched in history on this permanent feature in our school. All details are available on Killoughteenns.com. Donations are accepted online or at the school.
3 We will have a fun run in association with our schools Active Week in June. Details of this will issue in the spring time.
We thank you in advance for your support!
