The contribution of Mr. Seamus Hanafin to education and sport in the parish will be acknowledged and celebrated on Saturday night, October 20th, in Allenwood GAA Hall. The celebrations will begin at 8pm. It will be a wonderful social opportunity to meet neighbours and friends, to chat and join Seamus for a look back at his time in our school. There will be entertainment on the night and light refreshments will also be served. All are very welcome! We look forward to seeing you there.
Well done to the P.T.A. for organising another successful LENREC collection in our school. Thank you to all parents and members of the community who donated their unwanted clothes. A big thank you to Emma Grogan from the P.T.A. and also the 6th class pupils who helped to load the many bags for collection.
We were very fortunate in Allen NS today. Our school was visited by three of Kildare’s champions and their winning cups - The U20’s All Ireland and Leinster, The Christy Ring and The Leinster Junior cup. The pupils of Allen NS were given an opportunity to ask the players some questions, which proved to be very insightful and inspiring. We would like to thank Jimmy, Bernard and Declan for visiting our school and we congratulate them on their huge success!
We are so proud of 5th class who have made it into the Regional Final of the Our World Irish Aid Awards with their project entitled "Allen NS secure victory with 17 goals!!". The regional final takes place in Dublin on May 15th. Best of luck to the class and well done for doing the school proud!!!
The P.T.A recently held a bag packing event in order to raise funds for our school. We would like to sincerely thank the members of the P.T.A and those who volunteered their time or contributed to the event. We are thrilled to announce that the event raised almost €900! The funds raised will go towards equipping our new Sensory Room.
A prize was given to the pupil of Allen N.S. who had the most volunteers to support the fundraiser on the day. Ned Dunne, a 2nd Class pupil, won prizes for his whole class, thanks to the support from four of his family members!
