Welcome to Scoil Aoife CNS

Welcome to Scoil Aoife Community National School here in Citywest. We opened our doors in 2014 and we now have classes from Junior Infants to Fourth Class with an additional ASD class. We are under the patronage of the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board. We are a state run multi-denominational, co-educational primary school. The school provides the full National Primary School curriculum through the medium of English, as specified by the Department of Education and Skills.

Dear Families,

I hope you are well and that you are coping with this difficult scenario in which we find ourselves. The days are stretching into weeks and now months and it is difficult to believe that we are now away from school for almost 2 months.

This is a long time for a child to miss out on their learning and we still have a long way to go. When we return to school children will not be repeating the class they have missed out on. Every child in the country and children all over the world are in the same position. We will assess where the children are and work with them, but many will find it difficult. For this reason, it is important that your child is doing school work at home. There are lots of opportunities for learning and you need to stay in touch with their teacher for direction. We don’t expect you to spend hours with them, but they need your support and encouragement. If you are finding it difficult contact us. We are here to help! 

Your child’s future is in your hands.

We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,               Stacey McAuley
