Welcome to all parents, staff, and children to the 2021 / 22 school year. We hope ye have settled in and feeling the pleasant routine of a chirpy school yard on a weekday morning.


The new JPA committee is formed after our AGM towards the end of August and we had our first meeting in early October. We intend to make the 21/22 school year an inclusive year for all those involved with Johnstown Boys and Girls National School. Do stay in touch and feel free to connect with me (and the committee) at any stage.

We will be taking class photographs for our annual school calendars tomorrow morning.

With Thanks,


Wishing Sheila well on her retirement.

The JPA would like to send their appreciation for the 24 years of dedication from Ms. Sheila Mc Keever, who left to begin her retirement on the first week of term.

Sheila worked in mainstream classes within the girls’ school, on the Support Team, and in the original Meadow classes when they opened in October 2011.

On behalf of all parents and pupils, we wish Sheila well on her retirement.
