We will be returning on Wednesday the 30th of August at 9.20. We will of course be completing a full day straight away. Morning clubs and homework clubs will operate from Wednesday also.


Ms. Emma Kehoe has taken up a job in Carndonagh and we wish her well and thank her for her contribution to the school. Mr. Oisin Gallen will be taking over her role from September in learning support. Ms. Michelle McKinney and Ms. Sinead Grant have taken up SNA roles in the school .


The school has been a hive of activity over the last few weeks. We got the full go-ahead to reconfigure two classrooms for our new ASD classes and a new state-of-the-art modular unit will be in place to accommodate our fourth and fifth classes. These new buildings will once again transform the school. The modular classrooms are large, bright, energy-efficient, top-of-the-range classes and will provide a more spacious and comfortable school experience for the children and teachers. All these things take time to complete and September may come too quickly for the children to be in their new classes so we will be leaving the 4th and 5th classes in their normal classes and moving them when the modular builds are ready.

Stationary and books: All school books are being supplied free of charge this year. Teachers will inform you over the next few days of what is needed for your child’s pencil case. That is all that is required. The school will be asking for a donation of €20 per child for the school year to cover Photocopying and art supplies. Please contact the school if you are unable to make this contribution.


Absenteeism: If your child misses more the 20 days the school is obligated to report this information to Tusla. Please make sure that any reason for non-attendance should be explained through the Aladdin app.


If you have any queries please contact me through the school email at aengusns@gmail.com and I will return to you with an answer as soon as possible.


Now get out and enjoy the remaining sun/rain,
