Cruinniú na Nollag 2017

This year’s Christmas production was the brainchild of the Senior Room. There was a bit of everything in there – the 12 days of Christmas, the Grinch, Mr & Mrs Claus, gingerbread men, pine trees, all-sorts of angels – naughty & nice -,  juicy holly berries and children through the ages, a little drummer boy, little stars, shepherds, children at play, etc… And of course rappers, ‘coz no Christmas Play is complete without the rappers!

Parents and grandparents enjoyed the variety of poems, raps, songs and good humour which the children put on display that night. All wrapped up in a lovely theme – ‘Where is Christmas?’

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.
