Welcome back to all students of Scoil Chaitríona Junior
A special welcome to all our new students, particularly Junior Infants who have started 'big school'
Looking forward to a good year ahead.
We at Scoil Chaitríona Junior aim to create a safe, secure school environment that focuses on the child's development and learning, embracing individuality, socialisation and communication.
We will do our best to create an oasis of possibility, where pupils are encouraged to form friendships, learn new truths, develop and grow, not only in numeracy and literacy, where each individual is valued, accepted and secure.
It is with deep regret that Scoil Chaitríona heard of the passing of our Deputy Principal, Mary Browne on Sunday, July 27th 2014.
Mary taught in Scoil Chaitríona for almost 40 years and will be sadly missed by our pupils, staff and the Renmore community.
She was a perfect lady, a great teacher and a constant support to colleagues and parents of the school.
Her kindness and understanding touched the hearts of all who knew her.
A rock of strength, Mary was capable of seeing the bright side of every situation.
Her smile assured pupils they were in safe hands while in her care and her teaching brought a wide spectrum to her classroom.
She had a special interest in gardening and much of the planting around the school was done by her, whether it was daffodils, shrubs or trees. Any spare minute was spent planting or encouraging others to do likewise.
Mary was involved in the choice of the newly planted trees at the front of the school and was keen to see that they were our native species. Her departure from Scoil Chaitríona Junior was premature but her memory will live on in our love of nature that she was so keen to cultivate.
It was a privilege to have known Mary.
May she rest in peace and may God comfort her husband, Richard, and her three daughters, Karen, Georgina and Claire.
