Mission Statement

    Shountrade National School is a co-educational, Catholic, primary school which strives to provide a well ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and catered for.

    While ours is a school with a Catholic ethos, we also give due recognition to all other religions.

    Our school will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to instil in pupils respect for people and property and to encourage in them the idea of being responsible.

    We will strive to promote, both individually and collectively the professional and personal development of teachers.

    Parents are encouraged to become involved in school activities through home/school contacts and through involvement with the Parents Association.

    Gender equity will be promoted at all times amongst the teachers and pupils.

    Our School Motto is Fás agus Foghlaim.
