In Scoil Chaitríona Naíonáin;

We choose Christian Culture

We cherish our children

We prepare children to become responsible members of the community


In Scoil Chaitríona Naíonáin we strive to provide a fully inclusive, welcoming, stimulating and secure environment wherein we cherish all children and celebrate their uniqueness, as expressed in their personality, intelligence, and potential for development. We aim to nurture each pupil in all dimensions of life; spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social, and physical.

We aim to provide high-quality education through our commitment to and implementation of a child-centered curriculum that provides meaningful learning experiences and addresses a wide range of learning styles. We focus on maximising each child’s sense of wellbeing and empowering our students to embrace and enjoy learning.

Our vision is to ensure that all students acquire, value and demonstrate skills and knowledge that will support them as lifelong learners and assist them to fulfil their potential as they become compassionate, innovative, productive and responsible members of society

We recognise that Parents/Guardians are the children’s primary educators and we strive to empower and encourage them to be actively involved in their child’s education and the life of the school by providing support and fostering positive and effective working relationships. We value our relationship with our local community and actively promote our pupils’ and their families’ involvement in the community. We also encourage positive and effective links to wider and global communities.
