Peace IV Project Scoil Chlann Naofa

Last Thursday we started a project with the Hunt N.S. Mohill. Our schools are linked together to take part in the Peace IV Project which is a cross border initiative funded by the EU. See factsheet Peace IV Information.
Below is a short video of our introductory day. It was a fantastic day full of fun, learning and introductions (of course!) Keep following us here as we update you with more news about our activities and project work this year.

Fáilte ar ais!

We are well and truly settled into the school year 2017-2018. It is our second year of amalgamation and it is really wonderful to have boys and girls learning together in the one class. We hope it will be a successful year for pupils and staff of Scoil Chlann Naofa. We would like to welcome our many new children, not only our lovely Junior Infants, but the new boys and girls throughout many classes of the school. We hope to keep you updated here on the Scoil Chlann Naofa blog.
