Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St. Patrick’s Senior National School's website. We cater for boys and girls from 3rd to 6th class. We are a Catholic school, however we welcome and embrace all religions and faiths.

We aim to help our children to develop to the best of their ability in a holistic manner encompassing their physical, spiritual, emotional and academic well-being. We have very high expectations for our children academically. We are an active school and we have the flag to prove it. Children have the opportunity to take part in gaelic games, soccer, basketball, athletics and many more sports. We care about the environment. Our school has earned 4 green flags. We are a musical school. We received a grant from the Department of Education last year to develop our school into a musical school of excellence. This year every child in our school will be learning to play a musical instrument on a weekly basis.

Above all, we place the highest value on the happiness of our children. If children are not happy they cannot learn and embrace what life has to offer. We earned the amber flag last year as a sign that we support mental and emotional well-being in our staff and students.

St. Patrick’s S.N.S. is truly at the heart of the community and encourages high levels of parental involvement in their child’s education. Claire Kelly is our HSCL who works closely with our parents to support them.

I myself have worked in St. Patrick’s S.N.S since the year 2000. I love every minute of working with our school community, our staff, students and families. My door is always open and should you ever have a question or a worry, please feel free to come and talk to me.

We are very excited that our new school build has started and we really look forward to its completition.

We realise that this school year is very different from other years - we are just after a six month closure due to Covid-19, school staff are wearing masks and visors, children are not on our corridors, everyone has to regularly wash hands and santize etc. However, I want to reassure you that we are taking every possible precaution to try to ensure the safety of everyone in our school community. It is also our priority to ensure that our children are happy, reduce anxieties and support anyone that needs support during this difficult time.

I would like to wish everyone a happy and productive school year ahead.
