CETNS got involved in the April National Spring Clean

Every year, the staff and children love to get involved in the April National Spring Clean. We always pick litter all around the Abbey, the Abbey car park, Cloonbiggen Rd,. and our school grounds.

The children really look forward to this event and love using the gardening gloves and litter pickers. Thank you to Caitriona Cunningham for sharing her high viz vests, litter pickers and gloves with us.

St Patrick's Day Celebrations

A big thank you to all the students and families that turned out today to represent the school at the Claregalway St Patrick’s festivities. Here are two videos Terri took earlier. A big thanks to Daniel, Niamh and Siobhán for all their work getting it all together for today’s performance.

Exciting News

Yesterday we received our architect’s impression of our new build by ABM Design and Build. Progress on the site opposite the Community Centre is being made rapidly. We have been given a best case scenario of moving in to our new purpose built school at the end of October 2019 during the Mid-Term. What an exciting time.  The space will be so welcome. Thank you to all in the school community who believed in us from when we started out with 29 pupils here on Cloonbiggen Road. Our vision hasn’t changed and has survived so many obstacles- Planning Permission for Additional classrooms, working in less than adequate premises but still having high standards, hosting events without a gym, hosting Activity Week each year thanks to our creative parents, providing sports without a pitch or gym and always borrowing or bussing to venues….. It has been challenging but we are so near the permanent premises with all it will afford us. We look forward to the busy months ahead. Thank you again for your patience and your support. 



Eimear and Helen's room went on a Winter Walk to Rinville

We had a lovely Winter Walk in Rinville today. The children enjoyed ticking off boxes on their “ Winter Hunt and Park Checklist”. When we got to the playground we had a picnic outside and then the children had a great time playing in the playground. They were very good at carrying their own backpacks. Thank you to all the parents and teachers who helped out on the trip. More pics on classroom section.
