Saint Patrick's Junior School is a Catholic Co-Educational Primary School catering for the formal educational needs of the children from Junior Infants to Second Classes. There are three classes in each year with 340 pupils approximately on role.
We have a staff of 17 teachers, 4 SNAs, a secretary and a caretaker.
As a parent you play a key role in your child's education.In order to help you and your children to prepare for entry to the school or indeed to move to the next stage (for example from Montessori to primary school or from primary to secondary school), we have prepared a Parent's Guide with practical advice for each stage in your child’s education.
It is important that you establish a good school routine early. Check that all items of uniform and your child’s lunch and school bag – are ready for the morning. Do this in a calm fashion – don’t have your child over-excited or anxious going to bed. Give plenty of time in the morning for dressing, washing and eating a good breakfast. It is important that your child arrives at school on time as children can find it very intimidating to walk into a class already in progress
