Our school has a reputation for consistently good academic standards, with a friendly family atmosphere where each child is seen as an individual and is helped to attain their full potential. We stress the importance of the overall development of each child.
Building on this reputation is a committed teaching staff providing a personal service to every child.
The school is run by a Board of Management which consists of, two direct nominees of the patron (Archbishop of Dublin), the principal, a teachers’ representative, two parents’ representatives (one mother, one father) and these people nominate two community representatives.
There is an active Parent Association who hold regular meetings and provide important fund raising and event support. Guest speakers are invited to speak to parents and social evenings etc. are arranged. One of the most important and enjoyable occasions organised are the receptions after the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation.
