Appointment of New Principal

The new principal of St. Marnock’s N.S. is Sinead Trimble. Sinead will be taking up her new position in early June!

Giving the School A Lick of Paint!

Since the summer the school has seen changes in all of the corridors.  They have all been allocated a colour. We have a red, purple,  green, yellow and blue corridor. The main doors of  each corridor now match as well. This is to help the children make their way around the school as it has became so big recently as well as helping to brighten up the entire school. 



Painting the School Walls!

Mrs. Rogan and Ms. Curtin have been very busy drawing and painting on the walls in the school.  They have made one wall in particular very colourful for anyone visiting the school.  The wall which everyone sees once they come in through the front red door is the one which has been transformed. The various symbols and pictures on the wall relate to all the activities St. Marnock’s N.S. are involved in. We hope you all like it as much as we do! Thanks again Mrs. Rogan and Ms. Curtin for all your hard work on the project!





Action Ireland Trust Lesotho 2018 Project – Early Childhood Development Centre

We would like to thank all parents and families for their support during our recent non-uniform day. As we explained to the pupils, our Green Flag theme this year is Global Citizenship. All monies raised will go directly  to fund the building materials for the Lesotho Early Childhood Development Centre project, where our own Ms. Judith Rogan volunteers each year.

Some more details about the project…

After 3 years of planning and design together with UNICEF, the sod was turned on site in February 2017. This pilot project will provide education and care to the 0-5 age group. This will allow mothers to work and provide a safe and secure environment for these children. At a cost of over €100,000 and part funded by the Ministry of Education and Training in Lesotho, it is hoped that the centre will be the first of many such facilities in Lesotho.





4th Class Football Tournament

Last Friday, the 21st of May, some of the boys from the two 4th classes went to Howth to play a GAA tournament with Mr. Greene and Mr. Corkery.

There were two tournaments, the cup and the plate. Mr. Corkery divided us into two teams. We each played a group stage and made it to the quarter finals. In the end we got knocked out by Howth.

Then we watched the teams play for the plate. On the way home we got a bag of popcorn, a chocolate bar and a drink. It was a great day.

Also the Samaguire was there and we got picture with it!
