Congratulations to the staff and pupils of St. Tiarnach’s for receiving the STEM Award 2020-2021. Last Friday 4th class in Room 6 were invited to the online award ceremony. This plaque of Excellence was achieved for all of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths that was carried out in each class throughout the year. Despite a difficult year and a school closure we still managed to complete all of the steps that were needed to achieve this prestigious award. Please have a look at the extra curricular area on the website and see some of the experiments and work that took place in some of the classes throughout last year, both in school and during online learning. Comhghairdeas libh!

Last Friday the pupils of St. Tiarnach’s P.S. had a GAA/Sports Day in St. Tiernach’s Park. The pupils took part in a range of activities- obstacle courses, relay races, Gaelic football games and skill challenges. Thank you to Clones GAA Club for their support in the organising and coaching throughout the day.
Special thanks to Colin McCaughey, Darragh Holland and Joanne Reihill and to all the coaches who gave up their time to help out.
Special guests on the day were Monaghan GAA players Colin Walshe, James Mealiff and Ryan McAnespie.
Well done to Múinteoir Diarmuid and Múinteoir Phillip for organising the event. All pupils had a wonderful day in St. Tiernach’s Park and were treated to a well-deserved ice cream on their return! Maith sibh!
Below are some photos of the event. There are also lots of great photos on Clones Notice Board taken by one of our local photographers James Cosgrove.
Autism Awareness Day
On Friday 11th June, the pupils and staff of St. Tiarnach’s, celebrated Autism Awareness Day. We carried out lots of activities on inclusion and everyone was given lots of information on autism and how children and adults who have autism are affected by it in different ways. Pupils and staff all wore something blue on the day.
