KNS PA Christmas Raffle tickets are now on sale via

Online sales close on Wednesday 14th December but cash sales will continue up until the evening of the Concert. Donations are welcome and can be dropped into Rachel at Reception up until Wednesday 14th.

We are kicking off Christmas in style on Thursday 1st December - our school Choir will be singing Christmas carols in Charlestown Shopping Centre from 11am in aid of Laura Lynn. Parents are welcome to come and support our fantastic singers if they wish! If children can wear their school uniform as normal and a Christmas hat if they have one that would be great. 

Christmas Crafts Club kicks off on Monday December 5th for those children who sent back their completed slips. This club runs for three weeks finishing on Monday 19th December. We would ask that children bring a clean, empty jam jar with a lid with them for Monday 12th. Collection is at 3.30pm promptly.

Lego & Jigsaw Clubs continue in December, finishing on Tuesday 13th. Again, we would ask that children are collected at 3.30pm. Junior Infants After School club takes place on Wednesdays 30th November and 7th December, collection is at 2.20pm.

Our 3rd-6th Classes take an exciting trip to the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun on Tuesday December 6th where they will undertake STEM & Sustainability workshops.

A smaller group from our Choir will visit New Park Nursing Home on Wednesday 7th December. We are putting together care boxes for the residents and would kindly ask for a contribution from each child if at all possible. Items such as puzzle books, toiletries, gloves, socks, jellies etc are gratefully welcomed.

Thursday 8th December - Junior Infants - 6th Class are going to see Sleeping Beauty the Panto in the Civic Theatre in Tallaght from 11-1pm. The price per child is €10. The school will subsidise the remainder of the ticket price and the cost of the bus. We are aiming to be back in Kilcoskan for the 1.40pm collection but if we are late due to traffic we will text when on the return journey.

Teachers Amy F and Lorraine's Small Classes have a pre planned Christmas social day arranged for Thursday 8th December.

As we enter our final full school week of 2022 our choir travel once again to sing at Dublin Airport on Monday 12th December and the final preparations for our Christmas Concert take place throughout the week. The concert will kick off at 6.30pm on Thursday 15th December in the Coolquay Lodge and we would ask that children would wear their Christmas jumpers on the night. 

After all the excitement of the night we understand some children may be a little tired so we are having an optional late start of 10am on Friday 16th December. The school will be open and supervised from the normal time of 8.50am.

More information to come in due course and please do check our calendar which is regularly updated!

Kind Regards, KNS

Just to let you know that we have a local childcare centre called Tippytoes situated less than 1km from the school , the brochure is located in the 'policies and documents' section on this website- Click on the policies and documents tab itself to bring you to the brochure  .


Some brilliant photos of the school ( and an amazing video ) taken by a drone from the Glenveagh company are on the homepage/news section - the visit was organised to inspire children in school to have a greater interest in the STEM subjects ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths )

Dear Parents/Guardians, we are still experiencing problems with traffic and parking in the school grounds . A letter was sent home with the pupils on traffic management around the school grounds . If you require further information please contact us .
