Seachtain na Gaeilge

Mí Marta atá ann. Táimíd ag ceiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge. We are flying the Irish flag and we have lots of lessons and activities planned to celebrate our pride in Irish culture and language. We will be wearing green to celebrate the Ard Rí Shamrock Festival on Thursday 16th of March. You will receive a €2 Way2Pay for this event- all money raised will go the Parent Association Fund.

Extra Mile Award

Ewa and Anna are the cleaning team at Ard Rí CNS. Ewa has worked at Ard Rí for 10 years now. In that time she has never missed a single day. Ewa worked very hard during Covid and always keeps the school spotlessly clean. She is very proud of her work and always has a smile and kind word for everyone she meets. Ewa has had her hard work and dedication at Ard Rí CNS recognised by her company. She has received this month’s ‘Extra Mile Award’. Hip, hip, hooray!

LMETB Robert Ballagh Art Competition

Every year LMETB host an art competition judged by Irish artist Robert Ballagh. We are delighted that three of our pupils won the top prizes in the Primary School category this year. Below, you will see the winning works of art and our artists with their fantastic prizes. Well done to everyone who took part in the competition. The school gallery is covered in all the children’s beautiful artwork. Inspirational stuff!

FAI Spar 5-a-side Blitz

This week it was the girls turn to represent Ard Rí at the FAI 5-a-side blitz in the MDL. Two teams were entered from the school. The polar conditions did not affect the performance, both teams played very well. Both teams finished second in their groups with lots of goals and match wins from both teams. Well done to all the players and coaches involved. The girls showed great respect and care throughout the day and we are very proud of them all.

Nut Free Zone

Some children who attend Ard Rí have serious nut allergies. In order to keep everyone safe we are a nut free school. Do not send in any foods which contain nuts including nut butters, cereal bars etc.
