Sonna National School, Mullingar

Sonna N.S. is a co-educational primary school, which is located in the Slanemore area, roughly 6 miles from Mullingar on the R393 road. It is one of two schools in the parish of Ballynacargy.
We currently have 4 class teachers, each teaching two class grades, along with a full-time Special Education Teacher and a shared Special Education Teacher. We have 2 Special Needs Assistants (SNAs) and a part-time secretary.
The main school building, which was constructed in 2015, contains the 4 classrooms, Learning Support room, Secretary’s office, Staff room and Wheelchair Accessible Toilet. Our old school building, which was originally constructed in 1953, was totally renovated when our new school was built. This is now used as a school hall. We have used this space for Christmas shows, First Confession ceremonies, masses, school celebrations and school assemblies. The Hall also has a Learning Support room and storage rooms.
