Ms McDonnell joined the staff in Tang NS in 2014 and absolutely hit the ground running and never stopped since. She worked tirelessly over the years showing huge dedication not only to the children in her class but the entire school community and staff. She became our Deputy Principal and indeed very ably led the school as Acting Principal on two separate occasions over the years. Her work as Deputy Principal and teacher nominee on the board of management has shaped and formed our school into the caring, nurturing environment it is today where all feels safe and welcome.
We would like to acknowledge the trojan work and huge contribution she has made to our school. Starting our first ever Grandparents Day, running fundraising events, organising sports day, liaising with the Irish American Partnership, and keeping constant tabs on updating school policies were just some of the task she took on and made look so easy.
Having taught so many of our children over the years, and having such a profoundly positive effect on them, we want to say that she will be sorely missed by us all and we wish her nothing but THE VERY best of luck and happiness as in her new school.
