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

November Newsletter 2020

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. Between the 8th-15th November, there were lots of weird and wonderful experiments being conducted in the school as part of Science Week! 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. Please see below for further updates.Read More
