Intercultural Week will take place in ACETNS next week (14th- 18th November). Each class has been assigned a country and the children will be learning about these countries next week. There will also be a food fair, fashion show, quiz, orienteering and a day of travel (where children will visit other classes and learn about that country). Please view the Intercultural page under Events Week to find out more.
We had so many problems to solve in ACETNS this week!
Pupils from 2nd to 6th class celebrated Maths Week 2022 by taking part in problem solving activities in class as well as joining hundreds of schools around Ireland in the Maths Week Mini and Mega Maths Quizzes on Zoom. Well done to all who took part!
A massive thank you to our wonderful Parents Association who have decorated our school for the upcoming Halloween celebrations.

Today marked the last swimming lesson for 6th Class in the National Aquatic Centre. Well done to all 56 children who participated in lessons over the past six weeks. Today’s lessons finished with a dive into the big pool. 2nd Class lessons begin next Tuesday 25th October.
This week saw our girls and boys GAA teams take part in their first matches of the school year. On Tuesday, our boys team put in a very competitive display against Scoil Áine. While on Wednesday our girls team played their hearts out against St. John’s and were very unlucky to lose by two points. Well done to all who participated. A reminder that training takes place after school on Thursdays from 2.30 to 3.20.
This week, 3rd- 6th class welcomed our Spanish tutor Maya to our school as part of the Languages Connect Programme. The sampler module is a means for raising awareness among pupils of the range of languages used by their peers, in their schools and community. Over 500 schools nationwide are taking part and offering modules in a range of modern foreign languages and Irish Sign Language. The module will introduce the pupils in ACETNS to Spanish and will be taught over an 8-week period during the normal school timetable. Make sure to ask your child what new phrases they learn each week.
To mark European Sports Day, Diarmuid’s 6th class hosted P.E. circuits in the hall on Friday. Children from Junior Infants to 6th class participated in a range of events including squats, penalties, tennis, ball games, balancing, tumbles, burpees, hurdles and much more. Well done to all children involved.
