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

Maths Week Ireland 2014, 23rd October 2014


The pupils in St. Aidan’s National School have been taking part in Maths Week Ireland 2014 this week. Maths Week Ireland is an all-Ireland celebration of maths and promotes awareness, appreciation and understanding of maths through fun events and activities. To celebrate Maths Week in our school all classes have been engaging in maths games, quizzes, board games and maths online activities.

They also took part in a Maths Trail organised by Mrs Maguire which incorporated all the different strands of the Maths Curriculum. As always it was great to see the older children helping out the younger ones!

Look at our photos.

Toys in the Past, 10th October 2014


The children in Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st Class have been busy learning all about ‘Toys in the past’ as part of History Class. They have been looking at similarities and differences between toys today and toys that their parents and grandparents would have played with when they were younger. Here are some of the pupils with toys belonging to their parents.
