Kill O' The Grange N.S.
Welcome to Kill o' the Grange!
Kill o’ the Grange National School opened its doors in 1963 and is now in a beautiful new building since 2004. Our co-educational school is managed by a Board of Management, which is comprised of the Kill o' the Grange Parish Rector, the principal, parish nominees alongside both teacher and parent nominees. The objective of the School is to promote a happy, intimate and caring environment inclusive to all. A place of learning that teaches Christian values and instils strong values and self worth so our pupils are given the opportunity to meet their potential. It is a school that recognises every child as an individual.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye...
After 8 years as a child in the school and over 13 years as a parent and eventually 27 years as an employee, the time has come for us to bid farewell to the wonderful Sandra Chapple. Sandra has been the school administrator for such a long time that we wonder will KOTG still be KOTG in her absence.
We would like to say thank you to Sandra. Thank you for her wonderful efficiency, her kindness, her humour, her loyalty and for simply keeping the office running like clockwork. You will be greatly missed and we wish you every happiness and good health for your retirement. To Sandra...

GET IN THE KNOW.....
Keep an eye on Seesaw for the latest news and updates from our classes! There are some wonderful photos being posted from the classroom world so do take the time to explore your child's profile. If anyone is having issues accessing their accounts please don't hesitate to contact the admin office.
Aladdin Connect is the main platform of communication used by the school. It is a multifunctional app; Once you download it, you can report your child’s absences, view reports and test results, provide permission for tours, order tracksuits, crests / ties and pay bills. It is an incredibly useful tool and easy to use as you can send information directly to the class teacher and the class SNA and report any lateness pertaining to appointments and more. From a school’s perspective, it was introduced as a more efficient and effective method of communication between the school, families and our classes. If any parent or guardian is yet to access Aladdin or is unsure of it's workings please don't hesitate to contact the admin office.
