A Thuismitheoirí,

Football Training

Football training will take every Thursday starting today and every Thursday at Killashee. Children should be collected at 3pm from the carpark adjacent to the Killashee Leisure Centre.

In Service Day

The school will be closed on Monday 13 June due to an inservice day for teachers on the new curriculum.

School Closed

The school will be closed on the 6,7 and 8 June. The school will close for the summer on Thursday 30 June at 12 midday.

Book List

Book lists for all classes were emailed last week. Book money  must be paid by Monday 20 June.  Please send the money into the school in an envelope with your child’s/children’s name on it. I would advise any family who may have difficulty paying by this date to contact the school as soon as possible so that a suitable arrangement can be made. If possible books and school trips for all children in the family can be paid by adding up all payments due and paying in one lump sum or with one cheque. In the case of the infant classes and Rang 1 the copies etc are included in the price on the book list.  However, the other classes must buy their own copies etc. as per the list.  Please ensure that you keep the book list so that you have the list of stationary for the new school year.  The list will also be available on the school website, www.gaelscoilnas@yahoo.ieA reduction of €30 is available to parents of low income. Please request the form from the office if you think you are entitled to this reduction.


Ógras will  take place on Wednesday 15 June. We will have an end of year party in the school.

Photographs – Rang 6 and Rang 2

Please remember to return photographs and/or payment to the school immediately.
