Ethos

Our Mission Statement

The school’s mission statement states:

The aim of our school is to provide happy and stimulating learning experiences in a safe, secure and supportive environment for our children, taking into account the social, physical, emotional, creative and spiritual well being of each child, at the same time cultivating good habits, respect for each other, for the school and the environment.

Our Schedule

A Roman Catholic School (which is established in connection with the Minister for Education) aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the person of the pupil, intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a living relationship with God and other people. The school models and promotes a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Catholic school provides Religious Education for the pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and promotes the formation of the pupils in the Catholic Faith.

 

Our Catholic Ethos and links with the parish

At St. Mary’s, we encourage children to develop their Christian faith and spirituality, while respecting those who have different beliefs. We value the partnership between home, school and parish and work hard to build on and extend this through the ‘Do This in Memory’ and ‘You Shall Be My Witnesses’ programmes.

Our school is in the parish of St. Joseph, Berkeley Road. The parish was entrusted to the Discalced Carmelite friars by the Dr Dermot Ryan, Archbishop of Dublin, in July 1983.

The children have regular opportunities to visit the church throughout the year and the sacraments of First Penance, First Holy Communion and Confirmation are celebrated there each year.
