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.

Principal Desk

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
