June is a time when we say a lot of goodbyes. For some it’s a short goodbye, we’ll see them again in September for others they are moving on to bigger and better things, but they know they’re always welcome back in Adamstown, so let’s just say see you later!!
Good bye and good luck to the 6th Class children who made their graduation on Tuesday!
And of course Good Luck to Collette who is leaving us this year as well!! An amazing teacher who’s brought such great energy to Adamstown for the last 4 years!! She will be missed!

In December, the school with the help of the student council raised over €1000 for Crumlins children hospital.
Throughout the week various activities were organised such as, ‘sponsored silences’.
skipathon, and Funny/Christmas jumpers. We also had teachers and children busking at the school gates each afternoon.
The parents association also organised a movie night, where children brought their pillows and duvets and wore their pajamas to school and a cake sale was organised.
Today people from Crumlin Children’s hospital came to the school to thank us for the great work we all did and tell us a little more about how the money we raised will help the children in Crumlin.
A big thank you again to all those who helped organise and support the cause.
We are learning Lámh in our school!! Lámh is a type of communicating using signs and gestures. Here is Lesson 2 with Colette and some children from Junior infants.

Check out 1st Class displaying the many languages in our school and performing their lovely rendition of ‘Born to Hum’ at a recent assembly.
A big thank you for all the support and amazing creativity of our parents and children at ACETNS’s first ever craft fair.
We here in ACETNS are very passionate about the variety of languages that are spoken in our school.
We as a school have decided to learn a new one and it’s called Lámh.
Lámh means hand in irish, and it is a simple Irish sign language used to help people communicate.
Say ‘Hello’ and make this Lámh sign when greeting people
Here are two videos of Colette teaching the children and teachers in our school Lámh.
We hope you can follow our video lessons each week and use Lámh with us in the school.
