The weather may not have favoured our Chase but it certainly didn’t stop Santa paying us a visit! With the sudden calling off of the Dunsany Chase the whole community of Dunsany & Kilmessan got together to hold a ‘Hamper Sale’ and who should come along but Old St. Nick! 
Judging by these photos it looks like the parents, the wonderful Chase Committee and the staff of Dunsany NS and Kilmessan NS had as much fun as the very pleased -looking children!
Although rumour has it that some of those grown-ups are just too naughty to be on Santa’s list!
The Staff of Dunsany NS & Kilmessan NS wish to thank most sincerely the Chase Committee, the parents of both schools, the Parents’ Associations of both schools and the wider community who supported this joint fundraiser so generously.

The Senior Room had a great night out with our SNA Yvonne and Mrs Bockett @ the Mullingar Arts Centre for our Christmas Outing. It’s our 5th trip now in as many years – it’s always great fun. We love the Panto dames. This year’s show was ‘Snow White’.

There is a tale that has been told throughout the years about an old Russian woman Natalia, the legend of  Baboushka and this Christmas the tale was given a modern twist by 4th. 5th and 6th class with a little help from DJ LK. The tale tells of Natalia this legendary woman who visits the home of every child at Christmas time.

In The Good Little Christmas Tree, a poor peasant brings back a scraggy Christmas tree for his children, but he has nothing to decorate it with. He and his wife console themselves that they have such “good, unselfish children” that they will think the tree “very pretty as it is and make the best of it”. Touched by their goodness, the little tree sets off to barter her needles for icicles, candles and stars and has a wonderful exciting journey on the way and 1st, 2nd and 3rd class show this story very well.
