A note from the Acting Principal, Keith Kelly

Dia Dhaoibh a Chairde,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, ‘Muinteoir Keith’, as the Acting Principal of Eglish National School. I am a Ballinasloe native and have recently moved home after teaching in both Dublin and Dubai for the past number of years. The warm welcome extended to me from students, staff, parents and wider community here at Eglish N.S has been overwhelming, for this I thank you all sincerely.

From the moment I arrived, I’ve been blown away by the amazing work carried out in our school. The ‘Changemaker Programme’, ‘Erasmus’ and ‘Outdoor Learning’ initiatives, to name but a few, are fantastic learning opportunities enjoyed by the whole school. These initiatives are a testament to the diligent leadership of Muinteoir Siobhán over the past number of years. I look forward to continuing these for the upcoming school year 2022/2023.

As we embark on a new year, it is important to mention our previous Sixth Class pupils, as they continue on the next chapter of their education. We wish them all the best for the future and encourage them to continue to be positive changemakers in our community.

I would also like to thank the wonderful staff of Eglish National School for all the care, kindness and hard work they display each day. We have a wonderful team that are passionate about the holistic development of our students. I look forward to working alongside you all this year. 

Kind regards,

Muinteoir Keith
