                                       Christmas message from the Principal

On the occasion of Christmas, may I extend my warm wishes to you and your family. As we conclude 2022 and break for the Christmas holiday, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to all.

My first term as principal of this school has been very busy but also extremely rewarding. There is an Irish expression that goes “Tús maith, leath na hoibre” and yes indeed this beginning has been a positive learning curve for me. I am, however, very much looking forward to the many challenges and opportunities ahead of me as leader of this school.

I’m lucky to have a committed, hardworking and supportive Staff and Board of Management which has assisted me hugely with this transition. I am always appreciative of the support of our parents and families and the way they embrace our partnership to work together in delivering the best possible outcomes for the children – Thank you for your participation and understanding this past term.

Finally, I would like to thank the children for their enthusiasm and hard work, especially these past few weeks preparing for our Carol services and Christmas plays. Their preparation and dedication was very much evident in their performances. Well done!

May I conclude my Christmas message for 2022 by offering Nagle-Rice School community my very best wishes for the festive season. I sincerely hope you all have an opportunity to experience the real meaning of Christmas, enjoy the festivities of the New Year and spend quality time with family and friends. I look forward to welcoming everyone back on Monday, 9th January, 2023!

Nollaig Shona daoibh go léir ó fhoireann na scoile!!

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Ms. Aileen O Dowd – Príomhoide.

Biodiversity at Nagle-Rice-“Save the Bees”

Nov 24 2022

Great news for Nagle-Rice Biodiversity. Resulting from our schools involvement in last year’s ‘Save the Bees’ programme we were delighted to be presented with two apple trees from Mr. Peter Keane of Keane’s Supervalu , Killorglin. A big thank-you to all the pupils, families and staff members who got involved in the ‘Save the Bees’ activities. These two apple trees are a great addition to our growing on-site tree count and our overall on-site biodiversity. They are to be planted in our school sensory garden and will be a great source of scientific investigation and learning for many years to come and so a big thank you to Mr.Keane.

We Celebrate Presentation Day

Nov 21 2022

Today November 21st we celebrate ‘Presentation Day’. We remember Nano Nagle and Edmund Rice. They were the founders of the ‘Presentation Order’ of Sisters and Brothers. In Milltown it was this order that set up the boys and  girls schools known as the ‘Convent’ and ‘Monastery’ national schools. It was when these two schools joined together that our school ‘Nagle-Rice’ was formed. We recall and celebrate the wonderful work done by Nano Nagle for the poor and sick. She cared for and educated children during the Penal Law times when Catholic children were forbidden to go to school. She was known as ‘The Lady of the Lantern’. It is this guiding light that still shines through in the ethos and education of the children in our school. Today we remember all those Sisters and Brothers who contributed so much to the education of all in our community. We would like to thank Fr. Danny Broderick for his lovely prayer service with the children today. Thanks also to the Presentation Sisters for their kindness and generosity to all the children and staff.
