Welcome message from Principal

Beannachtaí agus fáilte go Scoil Náisiúnta Baile na Hínse.

On behalf of everyone in our School Community, pupils, teachers, staff, parents, members of the Board of Management and the Parents Association, I welcome you to our new school website. I hope you find it most enjoyable and informative.

It is my very great privilege to serve as Principal of Ballinahinch National School. Developing the whole child in a safe and happy environment is of huge importance to us and underpins our work with your son/daughter in Ballinahinch National School. We strive to create a collaborative culture of teaching and learning where every child can reach their full potential and aspire to achieve their optimum level. “Respect for all, respect to all” is the corner stone of our school ethos.

We are immensely proud of all the pupils whom we have encountered over the years, glowing in the aftermath of their achievements and performances, we must also remember the instruction and guidance which they received from their highly motivated and dedicated teachers and classroom assistants, who consistently demonstrate their creativity, patience, tolerance and respect in encouraging their young pupils.

The parents in Ballinahinch National School have been an invaluable resource over the years and we very much appreciate the immense contribution of the members of successive Boards of Management and Parents’ Councils. The support, generosity and sheer hard work of these benevolent individuals have helped us enjoy the particularly good facilities we have here in the school. Their legacy is evident in the many changes and improvements around the school, the tremendous work they have done for school management and for school maintenance and for the support and friendship they have shown to the staff and personnel of the school at all times.

Thank you to all parents who are associated with the school and who down through the years have entrusted their wonderful children to our care. We thank you for your undying support, continuous encouragement, constructive advice, cheerful friendliness, unbounded optimism and patience, but above all for the belief and trust you place in us as a staff to deliver a quality education for your children.

Should you have any queries about our school, please do not hesitate to contact us. This is your website too! Please visit as frequently as possible, so that you can keep up to date with all the activities in Ballinahinch National School. We look forward to an ongoing fruitful collaboration and your continued support in the future.

Le gach dea- ghuí,

Shane McGrath
