Welcome from the Principal
Dear Parents / Guardians,
We are delighted to welcome you to our school website. Through this site you can keep up-to-date with what is happening in our school and celebrate all the learning and achievements that our children are doing on an ongoing basis. Fenor N. S. caters for pupils in a vibrant, dynamic and caring environment. It is fair to say no two days are the same as our school community engages in what is truly an education for life."
"Please browse our website to get a snapshot of what life is like as a Fenor N. S. pupil. Better still, why not make an appointment to come and see us anytime. You will be assured of a very warm welcome and you can experience first hand that something which is unique that defines Fenor N. S. as a school, is indeed very very special."
"We are also very proud to have two special classes for Autism in our school, where children with more complex special education needs can be educated, in smaller class groups, along side of the mainstream school. We are committed to the inclusion of pupils with special educational needs in our mainstream school''.
Tim O' Byrne, Principal
Winterval in Fenor NS
Christmas is truely underway in Fenor NS. Christmas music is heard playing in the yard before children start school creating a lovely christmas atmopshere. All children and teachers participated in the Nine Days of Christmas Random Acts of Kindness which was a great success. They enjoyed scrumptious hot chocolate and they wore their Christmas jumpers as they watched Fenor NS Virtual Christmas Concert on Friday. What fun was had by everyone.
'One Kind Word' - Anti Bullying Week
Anti-bullying Week ran from the 15th to the 19th of November. The theme for this year’s week was ‘ONE KIND WORD’. During the week classes explored the topics of bullying, being a nice friend and the uniqueness of us all. It is hoped that by promoting the use of kind words, then one kind word will lead to another among the children in our school. Fifth and sixth class were visited by our friendly Community Garda who spoke with the children about Cyber Bullying. The whole school took part in Odd Socks Day and had an Outdoor Assembly around being kind and being a nice friend.
Science week took place in Fenor NS from Monday 8th November to Friday the 12th November. Have a look at some of the pictures of experiments that took place in 2nd class with Mr. Conway! They really enjoyed each experiment
2nd class observed the changes to a gummy bear when it is submerged in water!
They explored the effects of drinks on teeth using a boiled egg!
They investigated how to make an orange sink!

December School News
Monday Dec. 14th: "Unity in Adversity Event' in aid of Pieta House
Check out the the Event HERE
The year of 2020 will forever be remembered as one of the most challenging in living history. The whole world was impacted when the Covid-19 pandemic, changed our daily lives and impacted us all. In adversity, we were unified in dealing with the task ahead of us- keeping apart from vulnerable loved ones, social distancing, washing our hands, working from home, distance learning -the list is endless.
Our family here in Fenor NS know there are many people in our lives who have struggled during this time, young and old. We want to send a message to highlight to the country the resilience of our nation. We want all to know that ‘You Matter to Me’.
Sincere appreciation for the idea goes to Arthur Curry for wanting to deliver a message of hope and strength and inviting Fenor NS to share his idea. Thank you to Suir Engineering, for sponsoring the event. Thank you to Tina Schley for taking the photos on the day, thank you to Ronan Flanagan and his team at Rescue 117 for sharing their overhead images and supporting mental health awareness. Thank you to Shay Fitzpatrick for the drone images and video and putting our final presentation video together.
We are proud to have fundraised for Pieta, Waterford and happy to have Olive Ruane of Pieta with us for the event. Massive thanks to all the staff and pupils here in Fenor NS for embracing the idea and conveying such enthusiasm, as is evident in the footage.
Thank you to all who have donated to our fundraiser to date.
