DERMOT – A FEW MESSAGES,
WHAT A YEAR! We are happy that we have reached the end without too much drama, and that our children are learning and that they have not lost too much ground, if any at all, thanks to the hard work from children, families and staff. Thankyou.
FAREWELL AODÁN AND DOIREANN. It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that Aodán and Doireann are leaving Canal Way ETNS next week. Both staff members are heading to different towns in the West, with their families, to start anew in the countryside. We are delighted for them and wish them well in their adventures.
Aodán and Doireann contributed greatly to our school; Doireann as a classroom teacher, and a fantastic character who was loved by all in CWETNS, and of course Aodán who will leave an enormous hole when he departs our school. Aodán joined us in 2014, and became an Assistant Principal soon after. He was our acting Deputy Principal last year, and he also served for 4 years on our Board of Management. He led us in ICT & online learning, he was an amazing class teacher, a wonderful support teacher & special education coordinator, he was an inspiring leader who brought everybody along with him in everything he did, and he helped develop our ethos and culture here in CWETNS. He is loved by everybody and he will be dearly dearly missed.
Go raibh maith agaibh Aodán & Doireann – go n-éirí an bóthar libh
I will inform you of CLASS ALLOCATION during the summer months. We will send you the name of your child’s teacher and you can see their biography on our website.
WARM WISHES to our whole school community for the summer. It has been a brilliant year in many ways but also a very difficult year for each one of us personally. Our thoughts and warm wishes are with families in our community who have been bereaved this year. We hope the summer brings brighter days for all.
