Our School Ethos

St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. is a co-educational, Catholic, primary school, which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed. Through holistic educational experience, we encourage our children to reach their full potential.

While St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.

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

We will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through their involvement in the St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. Parents’ Association.

We will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for people and property and to encourage them to be responsible.

We will promote gender equity amongst the teachers and pupils.
