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.
We hope you can follow our video lessons each week and use Lámh with us in the school.

Autism Awareness Week is being celebrated in the school from the 27th – 31st March.
Stay tuned to acetns.ie for more information!!
The children in the school have been learning about how many children with autism experience their surroundings differently, with a sensory overload!!
The teachers were also very lucky today to have Brian from Autism awareness Ireland come and talk to us about how we can be more aware of the different ways children learn.
On Friday the school will have a big sponsored walk to raise money for equipment for the sensory garden and the den. The children have been given sponsorship cards and it would be great if you could help in any way you can. Hope to see everyone there!
Caoimhe’s class did an amazing performance today at assembly. We learned about the life of Tom Crean through drama and story telling and then they finished off with an old song Tom Crean would have sang.
A link to their performance of Tom Crean’s life can be found Here!

Special thanks to Zara for her hard work in getting all the children ready for the Céilí Mór and Aisling for organising another great Seachtain na Gaeilge. We also now have a beautiful mural on the yard outside the hall helping us learn a ‘cúpla focal as gaeilge'(couple of words in Irish).
