Our School

Mission Statement

St Patrick's NS is a co-educational, Catholic, primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.

While St. Patrick's NS is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.

St. Patrick's will strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.

St. Patrick's will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through their involvement in our Parents Association

At St. Patrick's National School we endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of all pupils and to imbue in them, respect for themselves, for others and for the environment.

St. Patrick's will promote gender equity among the teachers and pupils.
