Lá Dearg

The children in the school dressed in their Cork colours last Friday in support of the Cork Camogie team. There was great colour in the school for the day and we’d like to thank all the parents for their support. We collected over €600 to go towards the costs associated with sports and sports’ equipment in the school.

Welcome Back

Fáilte romhaibh go léir ar ais ar scoil. We hope you all had a great summer and we welcome all the boys and girls to our school, especially the junior infants’ classes. Everyone is settling in well and we’re looking forward to having another great school year in Ovens N.S.

We had a busy summer again on the building/renovations front. We replaced all 8 main doors in the old building with fabulous new aluminium and glass doors. We also replaced the windows in front of the school, painted class rooms, hallways, ceilings, external walls, radiators and skirtings. We upgraded our electrics/plumbing and landscaped the grounds around the school. We spent approximately €50,000 on these renovations and €10,000 of that came from you, the parents, through the parents’ association and marathon sponsorship. Go raibh míle maith agaibh as ucht sin.

Thanks to the staff for all your hard work, to the parents for your positivity and support, to the Board of Management and P.A. for volunteering your time, to the local community, Éire Óg, church and especially to our wonderful children for being so good all year. We hope you all have a fantastic summer and we’ll see you on August, 31st, le cúnamh Dé. Slán libh go fóill.

Goodbye rang a sé

I would like to wish our 6th class pupils the very best of luck in secondary school and their future lives, it was a pleasure having you in our school. Thanks to the staff who taught them over the last 8 years and to those teachers who gave their own time coaching them, preparing them for plays, quizzes, chess, athletics and the many other extra curricular activities over the years.  Thanks to your parents for your positivity and support and a special word of thanks to those families whose last child has finished in our school. We wish you all the best of luck.  Slán libh go fóill.
