March Newsletter

Where is this year going to? Another busy month in the lives of the children of St. Aengus’ N.S.. We built a classroom, survived a storm, welcomed inspectors,served tea to Grandparents and much much more.

Table quiz this Thursday in An Grianán Hotel @9pm. We need at least 2/3 tables from every class. It’s a great night out for the whole community. Homework passes for your family if you come. Now if that doesn’t get you out I don’t know what will!!! The school has transformed in the last number of months and we want St. Aengus’ N.S. to be a beacon of education for the whole country. Please support the school and have a great night out.

School Closure: The school is closed next Monday the 18th of March for the Bank holiday.

Inspectors: We had an overwhelming positive experience when we welcomed our inspectors to the school last week. We look forward to their commendations and recommendation to make this school even better than it already is.

Indoor Gaelic Football/Camogie: We continue our winter training with the children and the boy gaelic team have reached the county finals tomorrow in Burnfoot. We can’t wait to get out to the dry grass.

School building: Our amazing new building is complete and we would like to thank George Gill & sons for their excellent craftsmanship. I think we can all agree that we now have a beautiful entrance and top class facilities for our junior infants. We hope to have a grand opening of the new classroom and everyone will be invited. We are more than happy to show anyone around the new area when you call in.

Debating: Hard luck to our debating team who were pipped at the semi-final stage by Carndonagh BNS. We are so proud of our team and with four out of the five only in fifth class the future is bright.

Seachtaine NaGaeilge: We are in the middle of Seachtaine na Gaeilge. Our motto is “Is fear Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste” It’s better to have broken Irish than smart English. We have tráth na gceist,  ceilí mór, nuacht as gaeilge, ceoltoirí agaus alán rudaí eile.

Confirmation: Sixth class will be attending a retreat on Friday the 22nd of March. The Confirmation ceremony takes place on Saturday the 6th April at 11am in Burt Chapel. There is tea and refreshments in the school hall afterwards. Photographs will be available in the hall by County Photos. You can get the photos taken and see the proofs and decide then if you want to take them or not. You are under no obligation to buy.

New Office: Bernie has moved into her new office. This is the only entrance for parents coming into the school. Parent picking up junior and senior infants can do so as normal at 2 O’Clock.

Early leavers: Children should not be leaving school early and should only do so in an emergency.

School uniform/healthy lunches: Please ensure your child has the correct uniform and lunch coming to school.

Policies: All school policies are available on our website.

My door is always open,
