Welcome Note 2019
As we embark on another school year, we wish to welcome Mrs. Lorraine Power as the new permanent Principal and Ms. Aisling Naughton , Special Needs’ Assistant to the staff of Scoil Áine Naofa. We hope they will be very happy in their new posts and that they find the positions fulfilling and rewarding.
We also wish the retired principal, Mr. Joe Killeen every good wish for the future.
This year, we were delighted to welcome twenty-two new pupils to the Junior Infant class. They seem to be settling in very well to ‘big school’.
We extend a warm welcome to you all and hope the year will be filled with exciting and stimulating learning in an environment that is positive and caring.
The 2018/2019 president of the INTO was Joe Killeen, principal of Lough Cutra National School.
Joe is from Corofin, Co.Clare and began his teaching career at Kiltrusten NS, Strokestown , Co. Roscommon. Since 1987, he has been principal of Scoil Aine Naofa.
In addition to his work in the INTO, Joe has been actively involved in a range of community, rural, cultural and sporting organisations.
As his year as president came to a close, (this year, Congress was held in Galway), and never one to let the grass grow under his feet, Joe now turns his attention to local politics. He has been elected to represent Fianna Fail in North Clare. We wish him every success in this venture.
Green Flag – We were thrilled to receive our first Green Flag in 2013. We worked very hard over a two year period to improve on waste management and recycling. We now have a cleaner, greener school. We are looking forward to working towards our second green flag which involves the conservation of water. Keep an eye on our website for more details and updates.
Peace Proms, Galway 2020
Our pupils were very fortunate recently to be given the opportunity to participate in the Peace Proms in Galway. It took hours of practice to learn the songs and dances required to be able to take part in this ambitious endeavour , but all agreed that it was wonderfully organised and a great day out for all. Congratulations and well done to all involved
