Welcome to Scoil Chroí Naofa, Athenry, Co. Galway
Welcome to Scoil Chroí Naofa, Athenry, Co Galway. We hope our brand new website will enable you to access effortlessly all the information you need about our wonderful school. Many thanks to Cathríona Cronin (D.P.) for leading the development of our new website. We are all indebted to her for this and for all the constant updates. It’s a marvellous resource for our school.
Scoil Chroí Naofa is a Presentation Catholic School serving the families of Athenry. Our junior classes up to 1st class are mixed and we are a single sex girl’s school from 2nd up to 6th. We currently have an enrolment of 345 pupils across 14 mainstream classes from junior infants to 6th class. We have a hugely committed and very talented staff comprising of 14 class teachers, 5 special education teachers, 3 supply teachers, 2 full time and one part-time SNA, a full time secretary and a part time caretaker.
We encourage the children in our care to develop their talents to their full potential and to grow into confident, caring members of the community.
We look forward to our newly promised primary school which when it comes will see a brand new purpose built co-educational primary school serving all the families in the area! We have been given no indication of a timeframe from the Department of Education but this is all very exciting news indeed.
Thanking you as always for your continued support and for the confidence you put in us to serve you daily to the best of our ability.
Ní neart go cur le chéile
