Here is an image of the amazing Tim Mudie piece - it's also hanging outside the school office!
The fun has begun! Our Fair preparations are now well under way - if you have any items for the stalls - you can start sending them into the school hall now!
We have had another amazing picture painted by local artist Tim Mudie - it's hanging outside the office - this is being auctioned for the school so if you are interested you can place a bid in confidence with Mr Packham! It's an amazing piece and will raise valuable funds for the school. All of Tim's work can be viewed at his home in Portobello - he'd love to see you or indeed on Instagram - check out @timmudie
All of the Raffles for the pupils will go on sale on Monday next in the school yard! There will be great excitement!
The Fair - will take place here in the school on Saturday 2nd December - make sure you pop the date in your diary!
The annual Christmas Carol Service will take place in Holy Trinity Church on Friday 22nd December @ 11am.

Our BEES project logo - won by KPS pupils Charlotte and Clodagh!
Have a look at our amazing display! To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the 1916 Rising the whole school added their thumb print and name to the map!
We think it looks amazing!
Thanks to everyone who made it to our Proclamation Day Celebrations - we really had such a great time - it was great to see our National Flag go up our flagpole and even better to see all the parents and visitors joining in for the dancing and celebrations!
WE DID IT!!
We are all so proud of our Senior Girls Hockey team - they have just won the Leinster Final for their division - winning against Scoil Mhuire 3-1 - they did such a wonderful job and congratulations to everyone on the team - and of course their amazing coach Mr Devlin! Come on KPS!

Visit from the Irish Air Corps
The school had such an amazing assembly this morning - we were visited by Capt. Balfe and Sgt. Walsh from the Irish Air Corps. They presented the school with a special pack based on the centenary celebrations for the 1916 rising. Along with the pacj they presented the school with our own Naitional Flag. For the moment we have to mind it carefully and then on the 15th March next year, along with all of the other schools in the country, we will have an official "flag raising ceremony" and some additional celebrations! Huge thanks to all the parents and staff who helped us in our idea of coming to school in our three national colours - we ended up making an amazing flag in our playground - have a look below! Also well done to our pupils who helped with the reading of the proclamation and the accepting of the presentation!
Some pictures from our great assembly this morning!
