Led by school principal Anna Maher, deputy principal Michelle Walsh and all teaching and administrative staff we work hand-in-hand with our Board of Management which comprises of church, school and community members who meet regularly to devise policy and procedures . We have an open-door policy for parents who complete the essential triangle of child-school-home, working as a unit to develop a mutually positive relationship in which the children feel safe and secure and enjoy the benefits of a fully supportive school.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
The children had a marvellous day preparing for St. Patrick's Day by doing a tráth na gceist, a mini parade and performing song and dance for the other classes in the school. Well done everyone and we hope you all enjoy the weekend.
Seachtain na Gaeilge 2023!
Bhí na páistí i Gallach Uí Ceallaigh ag déanamh go leor rudaí chun úsáid a bhaint as Gaeilge i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge. Bhí siad ag canadh, ag déanamh tráth na gceist, ag imirt cluichí agus ag caint níos mó as Gaeilge chun feabhas a chur air. Maith sibh!

Active Learning in Maths
The Junior Room were learning about capacity in Maths this week. As you can see they really enjoy these hands on lessons!
We had some fantastic success this week. Our senior girls won the FAI Soccer Soccer Tournament this week in Shiven. We enjoyed welcoming home our champions. Well done Ms. Walsh and the girls! They are now through to the next round in Mervue on 5th May. The boys had a fantastic time at the boys tournament but unfortunately did not have success this time round. Well done everyone.
World Book Day
For World Book Day the children had a lovely relaxing evening listening to David Walliams reading extracts from his latest book.
