Department of Education report for Réalt Na Mara Girls' School
We are delighted to share our recent report from the inspection team who visited our school this year in March. We are proud of our achievements and we will continue to work to maintain the high standards in the school. I would advise reading the Inspectorate’s Quality Continuum at the end of the report before reading the report as the inspectors are limited in the language used in reporting.

Congratulations to all the girls who took part in the hockey blitz this week which was kindly hosted by Drogheda Grammar. D.G.N.S played against St. Peter's N.S and the girls did very well and enjoyed the experience.
A lot of our girls play with local club Boyne Hockey, which was only set up a few years and has grown and blossomed ever since.
Well done to everyone involved.
Well done to our Quiz Team.
Our 5th Class quiz team took part in the regional finals of the Credit Union Quiz on Friday 3rd March in Ashbourne. The girls finished in joint 3rd place just missing out on a place into the next round. There was only one or two points between the top three teams and the girls did brilliantly. There were incredibly difficult questions which left adults in the room scratching their heads so it shows just how well our team did. They worked extremely hard over the last few weeks with Mrs. Mc Cartan. Well done and thank you to Grace, Joy, Olwyn and Yasmin.
Primary Language Curriculum
The Department of Education are introducing a new language curriculum for the teaching of English and Irish in our schools. This will involve a new approach to teaching language with a greater emphasis on play, on practice and on supporting progression in children’s learning. The first phase will be implemented in classes from Junior Infants to Second class and eventually all children will experience this new curriculum. Please press the following link for more information.
