The school will be closed for mid-term break from Monday, 20th to Friday, 24th of February. School will re-open on Monday, 27th at the usual times.


The school will be partaking in Operation Transformation’s national 10@10 initiative tomorrow. The concept of 10@10 is to get the whole nation exercising together at 10 o’clock this Friday for 10 minutes. TETNS will be having a whole school dance in the yard for our 10@10. It would be great to have as many parents as possible at the event too so throw on your dancing shoes and be at the school for 10 o’clock.


Due to the weather change a lot of pupils are coming down with different ailments (illnesses). If you notice your child is unwell the night before or in the morning, please consider keeping him/her at home. This prevents the further spread of illnesses.


Part of the resource money that is paid to the school by the parents is used to provide insurance for all pupils for school-related activities. If you need further details of this, please contact the office.

Junior Infants 2017-18

Places are still available for Junior Infants for 2017-18. If you know of anyone looking for a place for their child, please refer them to the office.
