St. Patrick’s JNS, Skerries. School Calendar 2018 – 2019
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved our seventh Green Flag! This wonderful achievement is due to the hard work of Ms. Grimes and Ms. Spillane, supported by all staff members, pupils and parents of the school. This is a fantastic achievement, particularly for a Junior Primary School. In fact, St. Patrick's JNS is currently the only Junior Primary School in Fingal to have achieved seven Green Flags. We would like to thank the parents for the unwavering support you have shown in regard to all our "Green" initiatives.
Parents are advised that enrolment for Junior Infants September 2018 has now closed. It is anticipated that letters of offer will issue on the 19th of February 2018. The last day for acceptance of a place is Friday 23rd February 2018. If you are accepting the place offered, please read and fully complete all documentation included and return to the school by the closing date. Telephone confirmation will not be accepted. As there is a long waiting list for places, if you do not confirm your acceptance of this offer by the closing date the place will be offered to the next child on the list.
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
