Dear parents and guardians, I hope you are all well and enjoying the fantastic weather. We understand it is difficult for the children to concentrate on doing any school work. It is simply a guide to give structure to the day. Teachers and SNA’s are available to support you and your children. You can also contact staidanstallaght@gmail.comstaidanstallaght@gmail.com or contact our HSCL, Ms.Collins, on 0863060410 in strict confidence. Please email any questions you may have. We will endeavour to support you in the best way we can. Following our school calendar, the school is closed on Monday, June 1st ( Bank Holiday ), Tuesday 2nd. Weekly lessons will be available from Tuesday evening. We would like to make a special mention to our 6th class pupils who should have been receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation today. We know that they are disappointed that they cannot celebrate this occasion. This day is nevertheless a day of celebration and is an opportunity for families to come together and appreciate what is important. Please see a message from Fr Bill and Fr Pat. https://www.facebook.com/101343508196334/posts/136115654719119/?vh=e Google data centre community grant: We have been successful with our application and have received funding to supplement the purchase of additional Chromebooks. This funding has dramatically reduced the time frame of our digital learning plan to roll out Google classroom across the school. PAWS Swimming programme: This is now on the RTE Home School Hub and available by clicking the link below: https://www.rte.ie/learn/2020/0513/1138157-learn-skills-that-save-lives-by-becoming-a-paws-hero/ The lessons and activities will guide children through Water Safety at home, in swimming pools, rivers and of course at the beach. All resources are available by visiting www.teachpaws.ie. We hope to start the new school year on Wednesday, August 26th, 2020. Of course, this may be subject to change with any further developments with Covid-19. Included is the Catholic Primary School Managers Association( CPSMA) which outline their concerns and ideas to the Department of Education and Skills on the reopening of schools. Kind regards, Mr Hayes. https://285362fb26da63f7326f-7ddcee2d8e46ffbdcbffc2b71f07fb3a.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/3416_20200529102813.pdf

3rd May 2020 6:29 pm
Dear Parents/Guardians, As a bank holiday weekend and because we were also due to be off on Tuesday, this week's lessons will be available on the app and website from Tuesday evening. Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has announced that the academic year has now ended. Schools will not return until September. While schools are physically shut, we will continue out the school year to the end of June following distance learning as we have for the last number of weeks. We at St Aidan’s want the best for every one of our pupils and will support our pupils' learning as best we can. I would like to acknowledge how stressful and challenging this time has been for the entire school community and thank everyone for their continued support. Parents and guardians have done brilliantly keeping everything going, with our teachers providing varied and interesting learning for the children. You are all fantastic partners in education, and I must pay tribute to you for everything you have coped with since our closure. Pupils need to keep engaging with their stream timetable as best they can. As parents, please keep in contact with teachers. Staff emails are available if you have any questions or concerns, or if your son/daughter is struggling with their schoolwork. Staff will continue to check in with homes and will provide extra support where necessary. Some family circumstances may have changed. Should this be the case, please email staidanstallaght@gmail.com or contact our HSCL, Ms.Collins, on 0863060410 in strict confidence. We will endeavour to support you in the best way we can. Is mise le meas, Mr. Hayes.

Confirmation 2020.
23rd Apr 2020 4:19 pm
Dear Parents & Guardians, It is with sincere regret that Confirmation Masses/ceremonies due to take place during May are postponed indefinitely. Thank you to teachers and staff who have worked so hard preparing the children. The parish is, of course, committed to facilitating the reception of these Sacraments for the children. They are not in a position to say when or under what circumstances this will take place. This depends entirely on when government restrictions on large gatherings might be lifted. Parents can continue their child's preparation by praying together each day, reading bible stories, or using the school or myriad of online. Once again thank you for your time, commitment and patience. Sincerely, Fr. PAT McKinley.

About Us

St Aidan’s SNS was built in 1983 at the same time as St Brigid’s NS. Before it officially opened as a school the building was used to host bingo nights and run classes such as tae kwondo. A school for traveller children was also set up on the site. In 1984 St Aidan’s moved in with eight teachers and worked alongside the Traveller School. Eventually the two schools were merged and the now St. Aidan’s became one of the first multicultural school of its kind in Ireland. The huge mural in our school hall which was painted in 1990 by an artist and our pupils is a celebration of our school roots and what we like to do.

Fáilte romhaibh go dtí St Aidan’s SNS.

As Principal of St Aidan’s, along with my dedicated staff, it  gives us great pleasure to welcome you to our new school website.

At St Aidan’s we welcome change.

Since our inception we have been educating and guiding the young boys and girls of our local community and beyond.We have a mural in our school hall depicting the multicultural make up of our school, of which we are very proud.We believe that we are an integral part of the local community and actively encourage our pupils to act and speak of their school with great pride.Each day we strive to make our school a friendly, welcoming space, ensuring that all who engage with our school get a true understanding of what our ethos is.At St Aidan’s we believe that all children are different and brilliant in their own unique way. We endeavour to provide as broad a schedule of activities for our pupils to give each child every opportunity to develop their own unique talents.  We expect each child to engage fully with the curriculum along with our dedicated teachers and staff who continue each day to work together with parents/guardians and build a relationship that is mutually beneficial for all members of the broad team that is your child’s education. Our goal is to ensure that each child is afforded the best opportunity to learn and grow.Our is aim is that the four years spent in St Aidan’s will be some of the best and most beneficial years of your child’s life. Each child will get to experience a broad range of sport, music, dance, drama and art both within school hours and also at an extracurricular level.  Thanks to our extremely dedicated staff, our Board of Management and our wonderful Parents’ Association, this is all possible.We constantly strive to keep the partnership between staff, parents and management open, welcoming and accepting to all. I am at all times willing to meet with parents who wish to find out more about our school.  In addition to our website, our school app further improves these collaborations. Everything about St Aidan`s SNS can now be found in on central location.The app will be updated daily/weekly and will provide up to date school information, contact details, information on school policies etc. It will also allow for regular a communication stream between parents and the school.

We hope with the introduction of this website, we can further build upon our fantastic school community.

Le meas,

Mr. Tomás Hayes

Principal
