  • Bio-diversity Project 2017

The 3rd and 4th class worked this year on a project based on bio-diversity. As a result, they had the opportunity to display them in the Boyne Valley Hotel on Friday 22nd June. The forum on Bio-diversity attracted the interest of Prince Albert of Monoco as he has a keen interest in the subject. One of our girls, Rafaella, even managed to get Prince Albert's autograph.
Down below are pictures of our display and Prince Albert looking at it.

  • Aladdin 2017

Congratulations to all the fifth class girls who, this week, put on a brilliant production of the musical Aladdin. It was an excellent show and the singing and dancing were of a very high standard. Well done girls and to their teachers Mrs McCartan and Ms. Kirwan.  The Broadway and West End better watch out!

  • 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.

Thank you to Philip McCabe who came in today to give an informative talk to the girls about bees and his work as a beekeeper. He even brought some of his friends with him and the girls really enjoyed observing the bees at work on their honeycombs and they even got to see the Queen Bee.

  • Donacarney G.N.S Hockey Team

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.

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.

  • February Assembly

We enjoyed a positive news assembly yesterday. Children received awards for being kind and inclusive in their play. We celebrated the best handwriters of the month and we applauded the great job our runners did at Rás Na hEireann.

  • Rás na hÉireann.

Congratulations to all the girls who ran representing the school at Oldbridge on Sunday 5th February. We had girls running under 9's, 11's and 13's.  They all ran fantastically and everyone at D.G.N.S is immensely proud of each and every one of them.
Three of the girls competing under 9's had great success and came home with individual medals. Well done Aisling, Aoife and Ciara!
