“As principal of St. Patrick’s NS Glencullen since November 2008, I am very proud to offer you a snapshot of our wonderful school. On my very first day, I was met by a tiny four year old who announced in a very loud voice, “Hey, new person, do you want to play with me later in the yard?” This simple exchange is symbolic of the warm, welcoming atmosphere of St. Patrick’s NS, a community which nurtures a caring, empathetic, inclusive ethos where qualities of respect and acceptance are paramount. Our school community is likened to an extended family, whereby all partners can offer support and empowerment to each other in their various roles, to ensure that our children reach an optimum holistic education enriching the spiritual, aesthetic, cultural, physical, emotional and intellectual dimensions of every student. While all partners such as staff, parents, Board of Management, clergy and the local community are highly valued for their individual roles and high levels of teamwork, it is the children that are the pulsing heart of our family. I invite you now to take a look at how our school community interacts through this website and I welcome you to our wonderful school, St. Patrick’s NS.”
