A thuismitheoirí, a dhaltaí agus a chuairteoirí! Welcome to the Assumption Senior Girl’s National School (SGNS) Website. We are hopeful that this website will provide a platform to allow for communication between all those involved in the school community, as well as an opportunity for visitors to obtain an insight into some of the work going on in the school. Assumption SGNS is a Catholic school for girls located in Walkinstown, Dublin 12. We cater for pupils from 3rd to 6th class. The school was built in 1958 by the Sisters of Charity and is under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. The school is run by a Board of Management and has a dedicated Parents’ Voluntary Group. We have a wonderfully large school grounds which includes a spacious playground, a large area of greenery and a beautiful enclosed garden. The school’s ethos has been developed over the past 60 years but still remains true to the values embodied by the life of Mary Aikenhead. In accordance with our ethos, the school endeavours to create a nurturing and welcoming school community which promotes the holistic development of all attending pupils. Assumption SGNS is an inclusive environment which embraces children of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds. We provide an environment where all of our pupils are cherished and respected and can reach their full potential in a safe and caring atmosphere. The school promotes a harmonious environment which nurtures the potential of each child to become an active member of the school community. The school also promotes co-operation between staff-members, B.O.M., the Parents Voluntary Group, parents and pupils.
Thank you once again for visiting our website and we are hopeful that it will provide you with an insight into the day to day life of our wonderful school. Míle buíochas, Jonathan Hanley Principal Assumption SGNS
