Next week our school will welcome teachers from Sweden and Portugal as part of the Erasmus + project in which ACETNS are participating. The main theme of the project is the exchange of good practice in relation to The Multicultural Class. The visiting teachers shall be in our school on Monday and Wednesday. On Tuesday they shall be brought on a cultural tour of Dublin. Visit the Erasmus + page for more information.
As part of our Erasmus + project our Student Council had a Skype meeting with our Swedish partners during a very challenging COVID 19 period. It was a great opportunity for our student council to talk to students from another country and share experiences. You can view the meeting on our ACETNS YouTube page or click on the link below.
This week both 4th and 6th class made the most of the wonderful weather and travelled into the city centre. 4th class visisted the Archaelogy Museum on Kildare Street, followed by St. Stephen’s Green. 6th class visited Dublin Castle on Tuesday.

We are delighted to announce that extra curricular activities will return in our school today. Soccer for 4th, 5th and 6th class children will take place today and every Wednesday on the Astro pitch from 2.30 to 3.15 approx. All children are welcome.
As per Department of Education guidelines, schools have been given the opportunity to return to some of the traditional ways our school was run pre pandemic times. This needs to be managed in a careful way. We will be having discussions amongst staff, pupils and parents. It is an opportunity to plan for the future and have a think about what perhaps we would like to keep.
