Special Needs Assistants in the school
In general terms the SNA acts in a care and support role that is non-teaching in nature and works under the guidance and supervision of the Principal and/or class teacher. The role and duties of the SNA are more clearly defined in DES Circular 0030/2014.

Hi, I’m Jackie. I started as a substitute SNA in St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. in 2008. I joined full time in September 2016. Being an SNA here is a very rewarding job. The children make every day fun.
I’m Liz. I joined St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. 13 years ago. I also run the school library and love to see the children flourish.
