Offical Opening of our New Building

The official opening and blessing of our lovely new building took place on Tuesday, 20th May. Our guest of honour was the school patron, Bishop John Buckley. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny morning and a large crowd gathered for the occasion. The children began proceedings by singing hymns, under the direction of Carmel Dineen. 


Eoghan Hyde, our principal, and Richard Nagle, the chairman of the school’s  board of management, addressed the crowd, thanking everyone who was involved in the project from inception to completion. Bishop Buckley spoke about the strong school community we have in Ovens and about the importance of the school to the community in general. The bishop then cut the ceremonial ribbon and blessed the school. 


All guests were then invited to Éire Óg hall for brunch followed by a fantastic show performed by each class in the school- junior infants to sixth class.

Thanks to the teachers, SNAs and to our drama teacher Irene Warren for preparing these performances, and to everyone who helped out to make this a very special day for Ovens National School.
