New Entrants- September 2022

May 2022

Hi everyone,

It was lovely to meet so many of you at our Open House on Wednesday. There was a great buzz about the place and I hope your little one’s first experience of Ard Rí CNS was a really positive one. If you didn’t manage to make it and you’d like to pop in to see us please call and we can arrange an appointment for you.

‘Mo Scéal’ is Irish for ‘My Story’. Each child has reached a very important milestone in their lives. Most children complete two years at pre-school and in that time the pre-school teacher gains a vast fund of knowledge on each child. Nobody knows a child better than their parents. We have created online forms for Early Years Practitioners and Parents, accessible through the QR codes on the downloadable letter or the links below. We ask you share the QR Code/ links with your child’s preschool teacher. Once completed, we can better plan for each child to begin to learn in a way that best suits them.

The next step on your child’s journey is the Ard Rí Summer Camp. The camp runs from 27th June to 1st July and offers sports, art, drama and creative activities in a structured environment run by our own experienced teachers. Children will lose themselves in the fun of it all as they go from one lively task to another. You can apply through the online Application Form below.

At Ard Rí Community NS we are developing Sustainable Development Goal 15- Life on Land.

Make sure you come and visit our Insect Hotel/ Air Bee & Bee located just outside the school gate and enjoy the new walkway around the Rugby Club pitches.

Finally, we still have a small number of places available in Junior Infants and some other classes around the school. Please tell your friends about us!

I will continue to update you on life here at Ard Rí.

Happy days,

Darragh and all the team at Ard Rí Community NS
