The ethos of our school is Catholic and Christian. It is based on the Christian philosophy of society in Ireland. We have our set of values that tell us that each pupil is created in God’s image that he/she has a life to lead to the best of his/her ability and a soul to be saved. We believe that all children are equal in God’s eyes and each is entitled to an equal chance of obtaining optimum personal fulfilment. We equally recognise the diversity of beliefs, values and aspirations of all religious and cultural groups in our community. Our school will be a very important agent along with the home, the church, and the community in the development of each child. Every effort will be made to ensure that the child’s all-round development is healthy and harmonious.
