About Us

School Philosophy

Scoil Naomh Áine is a Catholic Primary School under the patronage of the Bishop of Ferns. It promotes a Catholic ethos, while welcoming and respecting the values of children of all denominations.

Our aim is to impart Christian values and standards within a constructive learning environment. We endeavour to ensure that the individuality of the child is accommodated while acknowledging the right of each child to education in relatively disruption free environment. Our code of discipline shows caring and concern for each child and we nurture self-esteem, self-respect and respect for others.

We encourage the active learning of each child at his/her own pace. We strive to provide a well ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupil are identified and addressed.

We in Scoil Naomh Áine subscribe to the aims of education:

*To enable the child to live a full life as a child and to realize his or her potential as a unique individual.

*To enable the child to develop as a social being through living and co-operating with others and so contribute to the good of society.

*To prepare the child for further education and lifelong learning. [Revised Primary School Curriculum]
