Welcome Back To School


Autumn 2017


Welcome back everyone!!I hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer and hope that you are well-rested after the summer break.


On behalf of the staff of the Good Shepherd National School, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2017/2018 school year. In particular, we extend a very special welcome to all our new children, especially our Junior Infants, and indeed all the other pupils who have joined us for the first time this year. We hope that their years here will be very happy and successful.


I am also delighted to welcome our new members of staff:

  • Connolly (Junior Infants)
  • O’Gara (3rd & 4th Class)
  • O’ Mahony (Senior Language Class)
  • Doherty (Support Team)

We hope that all our new staff members feel very welcome here in the Good Shepherd.

In our school we recognise that in order to be successful our children need support from both home and school. As we start the 2017/18 school year, we know you will continue to work with us, so your child can grow in confidence, with a love of learning, and a determination to be the best that they can be. We ask that you continue to guide and support your child’s learning and encourage them to share their school experiences with you.

Finally, thank you for your continued support, and we wish you all a very successful year.


Yours sincerely,


Órlaith Veale
