In our school, it is our mission to develop the intellectual, physical, cultural, moral, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of all our pupils. We believe that a broad balanced educational experience within a caring environment promotes positive attitudes towards learning. This enables each of our pupils to recognise their talents and achieve their full potential.

We encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts, many events during the school year and through their involvement in our Parents’ Association.  Teachers and parents are partners in the children’s education, with co-operation and communication between home and school being vital ingredients in the educational process. We share the same aim, the well-being of the children in our care.


May the Light of Learning Shine Brightly on the pupils of this School.
