Back To School
As we start a new school year at Ard Scoil na nDéise we say goodbye to another group of Leaving Certificate students. We want to congratulate them all on their excellent results and wish them all the best for their future.
While our Leaving Certificate students embark on their future outside of the Árd Scoil and our Junior Certificate students await their results, we welcome our new first year students to the school. A very special welcome to all of the visiting students joining us from Spain, Germany, Denmark and Canada for the year.
This year also sees the retirement of several members of staff, Colette Power, Mary Ashe, Valerie Coughlan, Margaret Dennehy and Eibhlín Power; we wish them a long, happy and healthy retirement. We also wish a warm welcome to our new staff members Joanne Brosnan (Deputy Principal), Layla Caulfield, Sara Flavin and John O’Shea.
R.I.P. Sr. Paula Buckley and Sr. Imelda Carew
It was with great sadness that we heard of the tragic deaths of Sr. Paula Buckley and Sr. Imelda Carew. Both Sr. Buckley and Sr. Carew had links with the Presentation with Dungarvan. Sr. Buckley was the Principal of St. Joseph’s Presentation Secondary School before joining the staff at Árd Scoil na nDéise and Sr. Carew has a sister in the Presentation community Dungarvan.
