St Patrick's Primary School, Cullyhanna

Mission Statement

Here in St. Patrick’s, Cullyhanna we aim to nurture and maximise the full learning potential of each child and foster their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.

We aim to:

  • Create a happy and caring environment
  • Help children to learn that courtesy, good manners and consideration for others are very important qualities.
  • Encourage children to be self-disciplined, independent and industrious, to take pride in their achievements, and to be generous in their friendship.
  • Promote good relationships between pupils and adults.
  • Treat each child as an individual regardless of gender, nationality, religion or ability and provide teaching appropriate to his/her needs.
  • Work together closely as a team to provide a quality learning environment for our children.

Prepare our pupils for the responsibility and experiences of adult life to enable them to develop as well rounded members of society.

When parents choose St. Patrick’s for their child’s education they are making a commitment to the values implicit in the ethos of our Catholic school.  In order for those values to become fully developed in our children, we believe that the strength of partnership between home and school must be paramount.  We hope that parents will work to support our school in encouraging the principles of Christianity and humanity, which we feel should govern children’s attitudes to life.

Our classrooms reflect an atmosphere, where children are purposefully engaged which promotes excellence, enjoyment, perseverance, self-discipline and independence.  We aim to provide a curriculum, which offers a breadth of child centred experiences.

We are fortunate to have strong links with our local community and our local church, where we attend and participate in the Liturgy every term.

Above all here in St. Patrick’s we aim to provide a happy, safe and secure environment where all members of the community are treated with respect.
