School Tours 2021/22: 

All our classes had a blast on their school tour this year. There was lots of smiles and laughter as our 8 class groups headed off to a variety of locations on a well earned tour to end the amaing school year we have had. 

Juniors/Senior Infants: Blackwater Open Farm

1st Class/2nd & 3rd class: Chocolate Factory & Rathwood

4th/5th & 6th class: Clara Lara

Creative Schools: 

We had a really busy last term here in Boolavogue. Continuing on with our Creative School programme we completed lots of fun and inspiring programmes. Every child and staff member created their own outdoor tile with artist Christine. These tiles are now proudly displayed on our garden wall.

We had a day of yoga with instructor Niamh Boggan. The children did drumming lessons for 3 weeks with Conor. Finally we all designed and painted our new ‘Buddy Bench’ which is placed in our school garden. This is an area where children can sit down and take a break if they want or alternatively if they want a friend to play with or talk to they can sit down on the Buddy Bench and a classmate can see then they want a friend to play with.

We have loved doing the Creative Schools initiative. A big thank you to our creative friend Aileen Lambert as well as Mrs Coleman and Ms Reville for leading the staff in its organisation. We look forward to continuing the lessons learned into the coming school year.

Rackard League: 

After a break of two school years the Rackard League returned this year.

Girls: A huge well done to our talented and committed girls team won the district titles in both camogie & football. The girls reached the county final in the football where they lost out to a fantastic Crossabeg Ballymurn side.

Boys: Our boys had a brilliant year where they won the district title in football and won teh Rising Stars competition in hurling. Well done on an amazing year!

A big thank you to Ms. Reville & Ms. O’Leary for leading the teams and dedicating their time so selflessly.

We were all delighted to have an special medal presentation afternoon when Wexford players Paudie Foley, Oisin Pepper & Conor Hearne kindly presented the boys and girls with their very well earned medals.

October 8th – GOAL Jersey day: 

Thank you to all the children for wearing in your favourite jerseys and half zips on October 18th. the school raised an excellent €207 for a very worthy charity!

October 20th – Halloween Hike: 

On Wednesday October 20th we held our annual Halloween dress up day. All the children put in an enormous effort and the costumes were truly frightening! At 11.30am the whole school hiked together to the Fr Murphy Centre & back. Thank you to Garda Cathal Burke who gave us a garda escort to ensure the safety of the children. We would like to express a huge thank you to all the members of our community who came out to wave the children off and cheer them on as they marched. There was a lovely feel of community & the children loved seeing everyone. 🙂  

The children raised an incredible €1225 from their Halloween Hike raffle cards! This money will be invested in new resources & equipment for the children on our school. 

October 22nd – Official School Opening with Bishop Ger Nash: 

Friday October 22nd 2021 was an historical day in the life and times of Boolavogue NS. We were thrilled to welcome the new Bishop of Ferns, Ger Nash to bless the school. Bishop Nash spoke of how often he heard of Boolavogue, it’s famous history and that he was honoured to be asked to bless our new extension. It was his first blessing in Co. Wexford so we were honoured and privileged for Bishop Nash to attend. 

Fr White, Fr Gahan, members of the Board of Management, parents and members of our community were present to mark the occasion. The pupils of the school sang two songs and Bishop Nash & Fr White said a lovely service. Mr Cleary thanked everyone for their contribution into making days like this happen. He paid particular thanks to our former principal Avril Mullery who’s passion & dedication for the children of the school was clearly evident in the drive and effort she put in in order to receive the additional accommodation grant. 

After the service Bishop Nash blessed a tree & plaque at the front of the school for all members Past, Present & Future of Boolavogue NS. Finally then Bishop Nash cut the ribbon and our new extension was officially unveiled. Parents were then invited to tour the new school & have a cup of tea & coffee afterwards. Go raibh maith agaibh to the Parents Association for organising teas, coffees and treats for the occasion.

Welcome back everyone to the new & improved Boolavogue!

We are delighted to welcome everyone back to our new and improved school this year. We are thrilled to open the doors to our new additional accommodation. In our new extension we have two new state of the art classrooms, a new resource room and also a fantastic sensory room. Added to this we have developed & improved our existing school. We have re-roofed the entire old building as well as painting the school internally & externally. Added to this we lay new polyflors in the classrooms and all wet areas have been revamped with state of the art sinking units. We are very proud in Boolavogue NS to provide the most modern facilities so that each child can be enabled to reach his/her potential in the best facilities possible. 

Engineers Week March 1st – 5th 2021: 

In the first week of March the children got to learn about the world around us and how lots of the objects we see everyday are created and work. Ms Gallagher & Ms Coleman designed a wide range of activities fort the children in school and the children still working from home. The children got to explore to many different materials in order to try and make bridges, design zip lines, create books, practice coding, design tangrams, build airplanes and design their own future devices such as a futuristic mobile phone. Apple better watch out! The highlight of the week was the Egg Drop challenge. The children had to drop an egg from a height and design a safety mechanism for it not to break. Materials such as toilet paper, balloons, popcorn, bubble wrap and straws were all explored in order to keep the eggs safe. Like all true Engineers the children discovered that sometimes our best laid plans do not come off first time around! 

PE with Conor McDonald & Anthony Masterson: 

During lockdown we were very lucky to get Wexford senior hurler Conor McDonald and former Wexford senior footballer Anthony Masterson to do two PE lessons with the whole school. The lessons were suitable for children of all ages. The children got to do a question & answers session with Conor after he finished his PE lesson where he explained to us how important keeping healthy is and how important exercise and playing sports is for the mind. Thank you Conor & Anthony!

Children’s Mental Health Week 2021: Monday 1st – 5th February: 

The whole school took part remotely in Children’s Mental Health week this year. Ms Bennett organised a series of activities, events and challenges to help promote awareness of mental health as well lots of wellbeing and self care activities. The children were encouraged to bake at home, read quietly, journal, exercise regularly, do random acts of kindness, paint, draw, play games outside, practice mindfulness, watch something that makes them laugh and lots lots more.  The children also took part in a steps challenge where they tried to get 10,000 steps or more everyday. Well done to everyone who took part and we hope lots of lessons were learned that the children will use everyday going forward.

Grandparents Day February 7th 2020

To mark Catholic Schools Week (CWS) and as is now tradition in Boolavogue NS, we will hold our Annual Grandparent’s Day on Friday 7th February 2020. Grandparents, parents, friends and family are invited to attend a special mass to celebrate the important role that grandparents play in the lives of our students.

Grandparents and important people in your child’s life are invited to attend mass in St. Cormac’s Church at 10.00am on 7th February. Refreshments will be served afterwards in the Community Hall by St Cormac’s Parents Association where adults only are invited to enjoy a well-deserved cup of tea and delicious confectionaries. A beautiful exhibition of artwork will be on display in the hall, for all to view.

We understand that this day can be difficult for families especially if a grandparent has recently passed away. For this reason we have taken the theme ‘Remembrance and Celebration’ of our Grandparents this year. To remember and celebrate our grandparents who cannot be with us due to bereavement, distance or poor health, we will set up a table of memories. Students are invited to bring a photograph of their grandparent who cannnot be there to celebrate with them on the day. This table will be centre of our celebrations. Please ensure the childs name is written clearly on the reverse and all photographs are to be in before Wednesday February 5th 2020.

Internet Safety: Momo Challenge 

 Zeeko, February 2019

It’s highly likely that you have heard of an online challenge known as Momo over the last few days. So serious are the concerns about this that the Gardai have issued advice to parents in relation to it. The Laois Offaly Division of the Garda Siochana issued the following statement via Twitter in relation to Momo: ‘There is a “game” doing the rounds on social media platforms at the minute called “momo” which appears to target children or vulnerable people.

The momo challenge is a form of cyberbullying where momo asks to be contacted through a social media site and then asks the person to perform a series of dangerous tasks including self-harm.

There is a disturbing image of momo online that parents should make themselves familiar with.

Please always supervise your children or those that are vulnerable while online. As parents, it’s all too easy sometimes to hand over a device to a child for that few minutes peace but there can be devastating consequences if they are left unsupervised.’

As part of the Momo Challenge a woman with a very scary mask like face tells individuals to communicate with her via WhatsApp and other platforms and when contact is made, the woman reportedly asks individuals to perform dangerous tasks, including self-harm. This contact initially appears to happen via WhatsApp but there are reports that people have been contacted via other social media apps like YouTube and even via PlayStation. So, what can you do ensure that your child knows how to deal with an approach that they may receive to take the Momo Challenge? When something like the Momo Challenge comes to light it is important that you talk openly with your child about the dangers that are associated with something like Momo. It is equally important that you reinforce the conversations that you regularly have about staying safe online in general. It is always a good idea to regularly review the safety settings on the social media apps your child is using. Given the publicity around Momo at the moment it is even more important to do so. However, safety settings are only a first step and are absolutely no substitute for equipping your child to make smart choices when they are faced with challenges when they are online. Particularly with teenagers have a frank conversation about the darker side to the internet. Remind them that everything they see online should be treated with a note of caution. Also, in relation to self-harm which appears to part of the Momo Challenge, reassure your child that they can come to you with any concerns they have and be assured of respect and support. Openly communicate with your child about how it never ok for them to hurt themselves or another person via Momo or any other online or indeed offline challenge.

If you have regular open conversations with your child about how to best stay safe online then they have a great foundation for dealing with something like Momo. While there are specific mental health concerns in relation to Momo in relation to self-harm the basic message remains the same, talk to your child openly about their online experiences. Keep a regular eye on what apps your child is using and who they are interacting with when they are online. Most importantly keep the lines of communication open when it comes to the online experiences your child is having.

Please click the link below to view the most recent report from the Department Inspectorate following our Follow-Through Inspection in September 2018. The BOM is delighted to see the progress made by the school in relation to the initial recommendations acknowledged by the Department of Education and Skills.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole school community for their continued support of our school. As principal, I am delighted to see Boolavogue N.S. receive this funding. The community of Boolavogue will benefit for many years to come. Miss. A. Mullery (Principal) 

Lunch-time League 2018

A huge congratulations to Tyrone who were recently crowned Lunchtime League champions 2018! Tyrone were represented by boys & girls from 3rd-6th class. Six teams took part in the competition with almost 50 children giving up their lunchtimes to take part in the inaugural event.

Our school was very proud on Monday September 3rd when scoilnet contacted us to inform us that our school website, which recently underwent a make-over had been awarded the STAR SITE AWARD! At Boolavogue N.S., we try our very best to sustain effective communication with parents and our website allows parent to view draft policies, current policies and news of school events etc. Scoilnet wrote a fantastc feature on our website which stated:

“The Boolavogue National School website is very well maintained and easy to navigate. There is good use of colour and space. Visitors to the website are greeted with an image of the school as well as a welcome note fromthe principal outing the school’s values and ethos. The school have embedded their Twitter feed into their home page as a way of keeping visitors up to date with school events.

The News and Events section contains the latest news, newsletters and a calendar of school events and closures for the year. The school’s website contains a section on initiatives such as European Blue Star, Green School’s Programme, Digital School of Distinction and Active Flag. The website also contains a section on the school’s Parent’s Association and details how it has resourced the school by acquiring 15 iPads, a whiteboard and Maths equipment.

The site also provides vital information for parents such as the school’s daily routine, school calendar, extra-curricular activities and links to websites of interest (we are delighted to see Scoilnet among the list of recommended links!). Another excellent feature of the website is the Kid’s Corner section. This contains links to help pupils with research, games and quizzes and a page dedicated to educational apps.

Boolavogue National School’s website is well maintained and kept up to date and reflects the pride that the pupils, teachers and parents take in the school. Congratulations on winning Scoilnet’s Star Site award!”

Attendance and the NEWB 

As previously notified, our school is currently reviewing our attendance policy. This is available under our Draft Policies section of the website. As you know, a good education gives your child the best possible start in life. A good education helps young people to obtain secure employment and develop into mature and responsible citizens. The purpose of the Education (Welfare) Act 2000 is to encourage regular school attendance and participation in education and training for as long as possible. It is desirable that every child stays in school and completes the Leaving Certificate.

Under the law, every child must attend school regularly up to sixteen years of age or complete at least three years education in a post primary school whichever comes later. As a parent, you must let the school know if your child is absent and the reason why. It is school policy that reasons must be given in writing. The school will notify Tusla – Child and Family Agency if a child is absent for 20 days or more or where the absence gives rise to concern. If your child is sick or is absent for other good reasons, no action will be taken by Tusla – Child and Family Agency. However, if there is concern about your child’s attendance at school or about the reasons given, you may be visited by an Educational Welfare Officer who will discuss your child’s education with you. The Officer will work with you and take full account of the circumstances of the child and the family before deciding what further action is necessary to ensure that the child receives his/her entitlement to an education. Further information concerning the new service and about school attendance matters generally can be obtained from the national Lo-Call Education Helpline –1890 36 36 66.

Graduation Mass 2018 and a fond Farewell to 6th Class

On Tuesday June 19th, Fr. Gahan led our school community in our annual Graduation Mass. Parents and students gathered to bid farewell to Glen, Matt, Christopher, Billy, Emerson, Katelyn, Fiona, Faye and Ruth. This was followed by our annual tree-planting where 6th class left ‘roots’ in Boolavogue. The name chosen for his oak tree was ‘McCruncher’. The 6th class students and parents then gathered to watch a short presentation about 6th class and lots of laughs were heard around the school walls as a ‘guess the baby’ photo montage was played! After some treats and celebrations the 6th class parents and teachers joined forces to take on the graduation class in a game of soccer. After penalties, nothing could separate the sides as it all ended in a draw!

As the school year of 2017/2018 comes to an end we would like to take this opportunity to wish the girls and boys from 6th class the best of luck in their transition to secondary school. It has been our privilege and pleasure to teach you at Boolavogue NS. The time has come for you to leave the familiar walls of Boolavogue N.S. and venture off in different directions be it Enniscorthy, Bunclody or Kilmuckridge. But before you go, take a few minutes to reflect on how much you have grown and changed since your very first day at Boolavogue N.S. Think of the fun you have had, the things you have learned and the friends you have made. And as you fly the nest remember always to be true to yourselves wherever you go. From all the teachers and staff at Boolavogue NS, we wish you the very best of luck!

End of Year Assembly June 2018

What a busy year we have had! To mark the incredible achievements made by our whole school community this year, our end of year assembly took place on Friday June 15th. This year, our school went through lots of various changes- we have a new playground, new classrooms which are almost ready to open, we had lots of new staff join our team and even a new principal! One thing that has stayed the same is our wonderful students. All of whom have worked so hard this year to make our school the hub of learning and fun that it is. As we approach the end of this academic year a number of presentations were made to some students who have achieved great things representing our school. Some accolades we celebrated were:

Plaque of Stem Excellence, Green Schools Committee, Active Week Winners 2018, Rackard League District Champs and our Blue Star Award.

Special Achievements

  • Billy- outstanding attendance record throughout his primary education at Boolavogue N.S.
  • Patrick- silver medalist at Rural School Sports 2018

History was also made as our inaugural Student Council were unveiled following their campaign presentations. Our Student council is made up of representatives from each class group who will assist the school management team in making decisions to improve our school. Pupil voice is very important to us here in Boolavogue- some great ideas were shared during their campaign presentations with more bins on the yard being an area needing attention! Following voting at the Polling Station, the ballot box had its votes counted and verified. We look forward to working with our Student Council in September 2018.

Miss. Mullery concluded the assembly by asking all students to applaud our wonderful Class of 2018 who are getting ready to graduate next week.

Science and Maths Award 2017/18- Plaque of STEM Excellence

For the very first time, our school has achieved the Plaque of STEM Excellence from the Science Foundation of Ireland.

The standard of work for this award is incredibly high with various criteria set out at the start of each academic year. This year we involved pupils from infants to 6th class in our STEM journey. We used various forms of ICT, including lego WeDo, bricks4kids, engineering fairs etc in our school to promote the importance of STEM in our everyday lives and future. Each student was presented with a certificate from the SFI to mark their contribution to this award.

Rackard League District Champions 2018

HUGE congratulations are in order for the 14 boys who represented our school in the Rackard League District Final on May 30th 2018. The decider was held between Monageer/Boolavogue and Kilanerin in Ferns St. Aidans’ GAA pitch in glorious sunshine. The sidelines were packed with proud parents and grandparents! It was a nail-biting encounter with two very well matched teams seeking glory. Monageer/Boolavogue secured a 2 point lead heading into half time but an early goal in the second half from Kilanerin resulted in a highly contested second half between the teams. It was Monageer/Boolavogue who became champions in the end much to the delight of players, parents and staff! Huge thanks to all parents who helped with lifts etc during this busy season and of course, to our very own Ms. Richardson, for her mentoring of the Boolavogue Players. A big thank you also to Ms. Doran from Monageer N.S. for all her hard work through the year. Davy Fitzgerald better watch his back!!!! Monageer/Boolavogue ABÚ!












Ice-Cream Day- 99’s all round!

Mr. Chap arrived with his ice-cream van for all the students (& staff) on a sunny Tuesday for us all as a well earned surprise. Fr. Gahan treated the boys and girls to 99’s and rainbow cones for all their hard work and preparation in our recent sacraments. There was a lovely summer feeling in the air as the 99’s were delivered!!!







Green Schools Update: Third Flag awarded!

Congratulations to our Green School Committee and Green School Leader Mrs. Cowman on being awarded their third flag on 22nd of May 2018 in Hotel Kilkenny. The theme this year was Biodiversity. Hard work was put in by the committee to earn this flag and a great day of celebration was had!












School Excellence Award – Creative Language School

Congratulations to our brilliant teaching staff who received the School Excellence Award on May 15th in Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).

The award was received for fostering a ‘Creative Language’ school in Boolavogue through the arts. The course looked at how the arts can be used to develop Oral Language skills. The staff have been attending CPD training in their own time since October 2017 and implementing the theory in their classrooms. Brilliant work!!

Tag Rugby

May has arrived and with it brings lots of ‘Active Schools‘ fun to Boolavogue. 

Children from third to sixth class have started Tag Rugby with Ross from Leinster Rugby, emulating our own Wexford hero, Tadhg Furlong! We wish to remind parents that a change of socks, shoes and shorts/tracksuit will be needed every Friday morning as Tag Rugby continues.



Beebots for Boolavogue

The boys and girls at the junior end of the school were excited to receive some new friends recently.

Thanks to terrific fundraising efforts deployed by our P.A. and donations from our parent body, Bee-Bot Starter kits were purchased for our students. Bee-Bots are an exciting programmable floor robot for Early Years and Primary School children. The simplistic controls and friendly design allow children to quickly start using the little bot, from directing it to spell out words with letters on the floor or by sending it on adventures looking for treasure on along a map! This month, the infants used the Bee-Bots to travel around the solar system as they studied ‘Space’ in Aistear.

An Taisce ‘ National Spring Clean’

Our pupils from Ms. Boyle’s room took part in the National Spring Clean in conjunction with An Taisce recently. The children worked with staff in a bid to clean up our pretty village of Boolavogue before the tourists come to visit this Summer. Rubbish collected on the day included two old car seats! The children had a great sense of pride in cleaning up their local area.

Blue Star May 2018- Hungary

This year as part of our Blue Star programme our students from infants to sixth class are busy learning about Hungary. The Blue Star Programme is a venture of the Communicating Europe Initiative, supported by the Office of the Minister of State for European Affairs in the Department of the Taoiseach, the European Commission Representation in Ireland and the European Parliament Information Office in Ireland. We are fortunate to have three students who hail from Hungary as students in Boolavogue N.S. and we are learning lots of interesting facts about their home country. Did you know that Hungary is famous for inventions! Hungarian’s have invented many important items over the years, including the electric motor, the Telephone Exchange, and BASIC programming language. Laszlo Biro invented the ballpoint pen, Erno Rubik invented the Rubik’s Cube. We are looking forward to celebrating Europe Day this May!

Enrolment Night 2018

We look forward to meeting all parents of prospective students at our upcoming enrolment night on February 7th 2018 @ 7.30. The information evening will be held in Boolavogue National School. On the night, a presentation delivered by staff will provide information to parents about what our school has to offer each individual. There will also be an opportunity for parents to tour our school campus and visit each classroom. Light refreshments will also be served on the night. Spread the word and remember ‘a happy school is a happy child’. 
















Check out what we have planned for Engineers Week 2018. One of our highlights here at Boolavogue N.S.!
