Principal’s Welcome

Dear Parents/Guardians,

First and foremost, may I begin by extending you a “Céad Míle Fáilte” to Scoil Phádraig. You and your child(ren) are indeed very welcome.

All of us here, in Scoil Phádraig, know that your child is your most precious possession. We will take great care of him. We will endeavour to ensure that your son feels happy and safe with us.

We in Scoil Phadraig seek to celebrate the uniqueness and importance of each child. We will strive to meet the various needs of your son – intellectually, social, emotional, physical and spiritual. We do not solely view education as the passing on of knowledge and skills but rather as the development of the whole person. Your son’s experiences in Scoil Phádraig will be but the beginnings of the process of life-long learning.

The entire school community – staff, Board of Management, pupils and parents must work together as Partners. We will seek to create, develop, foster and maintain an environment which is Safe, Happy, Welcoming and Inclusive. Our efforts will be based on the Christian values of Peace, Honesty and Respect. Our combined efforts will hopefully encourage and foster independence, self-confidence, self-motivation and self-discipline, so that your son will be happy in himself, with others and with the world in which he must live.

This website gives some basic information about Scoil Phádraig. If you feel that there is something you would like to discuss, or if you require any other information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to working with you and your son(s).

Yours sincerely,

Cathal Carr
