St. Louis Senior Primary school is co-educational in which we strive to provide a well ordered, caring, happy and secure environment where learning opportunities abound. Our school fosters a welcoming, positive and inclusive climate where values of self worth, equality and understanding are cherished and promoted. We endeavour to enhance the self esteem of all within our school, imbuing in our pupils respect for themselves and others and developing in them the concept of civic responsibility.
Our school provides Religious Education in accordance with the practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, but we are respectful of and cherish other Religious beliefs within our school. We welcome pupils of all faith, including those of none.
We promote an appreciation and love of Irish culture and language while also forging a knowledge of and respect for other cultures within our school. Our school motto is “Growing and Learning Together” and this is our mission as we prepare our pupils for lifelong learning and further education.
I hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer. On behalf of the staff of St. Louis Senior Primary School, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2017/2018 school year. In particular, we extend a warm welcome to those of you, who are sending your child/children to St. Louis Senior Primary School for the first time, especially our four 2ndclasses who have joined us from the Infant School. We hope that their years here will be very happy and successful.
As we embark on this new school year we take time to remember our dearly missed Principal, Mr. Pádraic Carney.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the hallways,
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.
His enthusiasm and love for education lives on in the children, staff and the whole community of St. Louis Senior Primary School. As a school community, we will support each other over the coming weeks and months and as a staff we will continue to seek advice and support from NEPS psychologists and other outside agencies.
As we start the 2017/2018 school year, we recognise that in order to be successful our children need support from both home and school. We know you will continue to work with us, so your child can grow in confidence, with a love of learning, and a determination to be the best person he/she can be. We ask that you continue to guide and support your child’s learning and encourage him/her to share their school experiences with you.
Finally, thank you for your continued support, and we wish each and everyone of you a very successful year.
