Carnew National School



I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. Carnew N.S. is a vibrant, diverse, inclusive school where all are welcome irrespective of religious, ethnic or cultural background. Our school cohort is co-ed and caters for children of all abilities in an environment which strives to be a warm inviting place to learn. Our motto is 'Is ualach eadrom foghlaim' which translates as 'learning is a light burden to carry'. Hopefully, you will see from our website and linked Facebook page that our pupils learn in a variety of ways and engage in fun activities.

We currently hold national awards in Discover Primary Science and Maths, the Green Flag environmental award, the Active Schools Award, the GAA school of excellence award and we are pursuing the Irish Language Brat Gaelach award. Future plans include the building of a state of the art facility for children with autism. This year 2022/23, we are, for the first time, a rural DEIS school which means that we will receive enhanced supports from government, including a free lunch scheme. 

There are always challenges and opportunities in school life and the world of education is constantly evolving and changing. It is a privilege and joy to be part of this and to be part of the life of Scoil Aodán Naofa, Carnew. Please do contact us if you have any questions or queries.
