Welcome to our school's website. We hope that it demonstrates our school's ethos by showing our warm, caring and inclusive environment.
Our primary school has been here on Lower Baggot Street for nearly 200 years and we teach boys and girls from Junior Infants to 6th class. Founded in 1827 by the Blessed Catherine McCauley, we are the parish school of St. Andrew's, Westland Row. We continue our proud history of education by working with children and families from the local area, other parts of Dublin city and all over the world.
Our school crest represents that all of our children grow and work together. 'Respect' is a keyword in our school and this is reflected in how all members of our school community treat each other. Our core goal of developing independence in all children plays the central role in our teaching and learning as we deliver the primary school curriculum every day. Our school motto, 'Le Chéile', shows the high value we place on a meaningful home-school relationship as we help each child reach his or her potential.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All parents/guardians of our school are members of the Parent’s Association’s. So, all are invited to our 2019/2020 Annual General Meeting and coffee morning. At this event, we will elect the Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary for the coming school year. We hope to see as many of you as possible!
All parents/guardians are encouraged to attend these general class meetings. The purpose of these is to inform you about the work of the classroom so far this year and to help you help your child as he or she progresses to the next class level. Exact meeting times for each class will be texted to you.
We have just received notice from the Department of Education and Skills that we must attend an in service day. This is to ensure that all teachers are fully prepared for the full roll-out of the new Primary Language Curriculum. The school will be closed this day. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The children will come to school that day all dressed up and ready to go. Teachers will of course give a hand if there are any wardrobe malfunctions during the day… Prizes will be given to the two Best Homemade costumes (Junior infants to 2nd class and 3rd – 6th class) and there will be runner-up prize in each class as well.
