Welcome To St. Aidan’s National School Bawnboy Co. Cavan

On behalf of our pupils and staff I would like to welcome you to our school website. St. Aidan’s National School is a co-educational Catholic School with a current enrolment of 72 wonderful pupils!

St. Aidan’s is a school where every person is a valued member of a happy, vibrant learning community.

In St. Aidan’s we aim to provide a well-structured, caring and positive learning environment with plenty of fun and adventure along the way!

We hope our school is a welcoming place and we ask parents/guardians to communicate directly with us if they have any concerns or worries that need to be addressed.  As a staff, we feel hugely supported by our parent body, who constantly work in partnership with us.

Our website will highlight the many events and activities taking place in our school. With a highly dedicated and creative staff the holistic development of our talented and committed pupils is always fostered.

St. Aidan’s N.S. has a very supportive parent body and our school prides itself on the team element of pupils, parents and staff working together.

By browsing through our website, you will see that St. Aidan’s N.S. is a diverse, positive and industrious school environment.

I would like to take the opportunity to wish each of our students the very best for the year 23/24 ahead – there will inevitably be some bumps along the way but hopefully, with support, each child will overcome any challenges and have a happy and successful year in school.

Tá súil agam go mbainfidh sibh taitneamh as.

Best wishes,
James Rudden
