As Principal of St. Bernadette’s Senior National School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website. We thank you for taking the time to visit and we hope to provide you with an insight into the vibrant life of our school. We hope you find it informative and you get a taste of what school life is like in St. Bernadette’s Senior National School.
Our website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer our pupils and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work. We hope you enjoy your visit and return regularly to check out our latest news.
We believe our website reflects our best qualities and our warm, welcoming culture of respect, inclusion and diversity. In St. Bernadette’s SNS, the dedicated staff work diligently to ensure our school is a place where students feel safe and happy. We believe this is the perfect environment in which your children will reach their potential.
In St. Bernadette’s SNS, we take a holistic view of learning and of the learner. We emphasise the need for pupils to develop a broad range of skills, competences and values that enable personal well-being, active citizenship and lifelong learning. We aim to build pupils’ self-confidence so that they are unafraid to take the risk of attempting new challenges. We help them blossom and grow as individuals and give them the academic, social and emotional skills to enable them to realise their full potential.
In our school there is a true sense of community, where each member makes their own unique contribution, and where all experience the joys and struggles of working and growing together. It is this that makes St. Bernadette’s SNS a truly special place.
Since its foundation St. Bernadette’s Senior National School has been at the heart of the community in Quarryvale and has grown and developed with the area. It is at the centre of the lives of parents/guardians, pupils and the wider school community. The school is very proud of its noteworthy accomplishments over this period and the enormous contribution it has made to the local community. It continues to serve the changing needs of Quarryvale and to respond to the challenges of providing a broad, comprehensive, holistic education to all pupils in its care.
Every day I have the privilege of witnessing wonderful children grow and develop into individuals who are confident and assured of their worth. They are helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, special needs assistants, ancillary staff and other members of the school community.
Thank you for entrusting your wonderful children in our care.
