OFF TO GAMBIA
Off to Gambia in the New Year is Tecky Brett. She will spend 6 weeks mentoring student teachers and helping class teachers. Volunteers who travel there pay for flights, accommodation etc themselves. Tecky is appealing for donations to buy school aids for the students. Donations can be given personally or left in Brett’s Hardware Store before New Year’s Day. Tecky taught in Mullinahone N.S. and Kilvemnon N.S.
Thursday was a great day for pupils and those associated with Kilvemnon N.S. In the Ragg the school’s football team won the County U13 football championship for small schools. This is the first county title won by Kilvemnon after many years trying. Of the seven who played six had at least one parent who in the past played for Mullinahone.
