Witches’ Walk

Hallowe’en Newsletter 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians,
As we come to the midterm break, all of us here in Clashmore NS would like to thank you for your help and support in settling the children back into the school routine. The children have been busy reconnecting with their friends and getting to know their new teachers.

1. Hallowe’en in Clashmore NS
Hallowe’en has well and truly arrived in Clashmore NS and there are lots of ghosts, ghouls, witches and monsters hanging around the place. The children have been enjoying making all sorts of Hallowe’en art and these have been sent in for uploading to the website, so keep an eye out! We will have our annual Witches’ Walk on Friday 28th October, so we expect to see very scary costumes in school on that day. Thanks to Jazz and the Community Council, the route down to St. Mochua’s Well will be suitably decorated, and no doubt will be great fun for the children.Read More

Halloween Newsletter 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,
As we approach our midterm break, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you all for your continued commitment to helping us keep everyone safe, thus enabling us to get through this term successfully. Although this pandemic seems relentless, if we maintain a collective effort we will get through it together. We have had a wonderful term so far. I would like to congratulate the children who received the sacrament of Confirmation and that of The First Holy Communion. We had a wonderful day on both occasions. I would like to thank Fr. Kelly and all of the staff involved in the organisation and preparation of these Sacraments, Confirmation-Mrs. Osborne, First Holy Communion-Miss Dunne & Mrs. Hynes. This term, the children thoroughly enjoyed their 6 weeks of tennis lessons with Shelly Mernin. Thankfully, we were blessed with beautiful weather for the duration of the tennis lessons and we look forward to having more exciting activities for the children in the coming months.Read More

July Newsletter 2021

To all our Pupils, Staff and Parents,
As we are about to commence our summer break, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the school community for your hard work and support during this past school year. In many ways it has been a difficult year but thankfully we have a principal and staff who give their best for the children despite the many challenges. Our greatest assets are our pupils and they have shown great resilience so we hope they will thoroughly enjoy their break from school work.

With the steady progress of vaccinations, we hope that school life will be back to some semblance of normality in September.

On behalf of the Board of Management of Clashmore NS, I wish all of you a happy and safe summer holiday.Read More

Dear Parents/Guardians,
I hope that you are all well and had a very enjoyable midterm break. November has been a busy month for us.

Equally, we had a wonderful day last Friday (20th November), when the whole school community dressed in blue & white in honour of Waterford. As well as getting a reprieve from the current lockdown and associated restrictions, we are very much looking forward to an All-Ireland hurling final with Waterford in it in December! I would also like to welcome a new member of staff to the school Mrs. Michelle Fitzgerald (Special Needs Assistant). I hope that you will join me in making her very welcome in our school.
