Dear Parents/Guardians and pupils,

Last term has been very busy for all members of the school community especially the pupils: The children have enjoyed swimming lessons at Mayfield Sports Centre, Cork FC Soccer Training and Maths, Reading Buddies with Transition Year Students from St Pat’s Girls School, Digital Strategy Work with Mayfield Community School, Art Therapy with a student on placement and also workshops with the Creative Arts for Schools Team.

I would like to thank the Community of Mayfield on behalf of the school for their support and welcome during our first term in St Killian’s here in Mayfield. We have had visits from members of the Parish, Men’s Shed and Resident’s Association and enjoyed an Open Afternoon with guided tours for many members of the community. We look forward to Celebrating Confirmation for 5th/6th pupils in Our Lady Crowned next year with the other schools in the area.

Congratulations to our Deputy Principal, Kerri Hollywell, on her new position as Principal of St Mary’s School in Rochestown, which she will take up in March. Kerri will be greatly missed by all the members of our school community and we wish her well in her new role.

Thank you to ‘Serve the City’ for the help and support on completing a project on the First Aid room, this is a very important room for all pupils in the school and provides a space to go for pupils in need of some TLC.

Many thanks to all the parents/guardians who have supported the PA in working in school on two Saturdays this term to tidy up the grounds and to paint the PA Meeting Room and the Play Area. Also to all parents/guardians who sent in donations for the Christmas Raffle and to the parents who helped make the hampers, your continued support is highly valued.

To the children of St Killian’s I would like to acknowledge how well all pupils made the move to the new school and how positive and happy the school is because all pupils try their best to work hard and ‘Be Kind’ to their friends and the staff.

Sue Lenihan, Principal.

Everyone was delighted to welcome captain of Cork City FC, John Dunleavy, who visited school on Wednesday June 6th.

Much to everyone's delight, he brought with him the two cups that Cork City have proudly won this last season - the League Championship and the FAI cup.
