Car Parking/ Car Pooling
We all know how manic parking can be outside the school in the mornings and afternoon. We encourage parents to car pool and share the drop-offs/collections as much as possible.  The school gates are particularly busy between 8:45 am-9:00am so please be patient and keep your eyes open for children at all sides!
As you drive towards the school (particularly at the narrow section of road just before the school) please allow cars driving away from the school to do so before you drive up to the school.  Allowing cars to leave means more space for those yet to arrive.  Above all, BE PATIENT with other drivers!!
Homework Club
Homework Club runs in Knockanean School every Monday to Thursday inclusive from 2.40 to 3.40 p.m.  It takes place in Miss Gavin’s Room. Here children are encouraged to get their homework done and either Tina or Niamh are always on hand to give help. New members are always welcome!
