Ethos

St. John’s Senior National School seeks to foster a welcoming environment where every child will be valued and cherished. We will encourage and guide every child to develop their talents and gifts while caring for each other in the way Jesus taught us. As a school community, we value the contribution of all its members, respect their uniqueness and respond to their individual needs in a caring and supportive manner.

  • To provide equal access for all children to a broad balanced curriculum which takes into account the requirements of the Department of Education.

Atmosphere

The aim of the staff is to provide a secure, welcoming and happy atmosphere in our school.

We would hope children look forward to the day in our school. Parents know that they can come to us to discuss their fears and concerns for their children.

The atmosphere in the classroom is stimulating where the children learn effectively. Tolerance, confidence, respect, politeness and high standards of behaviour are fostered and encouraged.
