Sharon is a new member of the Aughavas community,having moved here a year ago with her husband Richard.
Sharon was a teacher and kept a lot of her resources and shipped them to Ireland when she moved. She has very kindly donated a large quantity of resources to the school,in particular to the infant room.
Thank you Sharon! We look forward to using these fantastic resources.

A committee was recently established as part of an initiative to promote our school and our parish in the hope of attracting new people to the area. To get this campaign off the ground, a competition was held to pick a logo, a slogan and a name for the campaign.
Pictured below are the winners – Matthew Canning, Meadhbh McNamara and Michael Flynn. Also pictured below are the many entries received from members of the community as well as children in the school. Thank you to all who took part and thank you to Leonie McKiernan who sponsored two of the prizes.
