In Scoil Naomh Eoin, we aim to create a school where all children are valued and respected; a welcoming, happy, caring, secure and challenging environment in which every child is able to develop to his or her full potential; a place where all children are taught how to think rather than what to think; an environment where children can ask questions and question answers freely, and to create a school that celebrates and cherishes diversity. We aim to create a centre of excellence in education with high academic standards, high expectations, whilst fostering the emotional intelligences and talents of children. Scoil Naomh Eoin is a Catholic school, a sense of wonder and awe in the goodness, beauty and love of God is fostered in our pupils. One of our school rules is “Expect respect in all you do, treat others as you would wish them to treat you.”
We are very fortunate in having a talented, highly skilled experienced and hard-working staff. Along with offering all the curricular subjects, children get a chance to participate in many extra-curricular activities, such as, Gaelic Football, Soccer, Science and Art clubs, Choirs, Swimming, Dance, G.A.A., Drumming sessions and many more.
As School Principal I am tremendously proud of the efforts and achievements of all at Scoil Naomh Eoin, including pupils, staff, secretary and caretaker. It is the enthusiasm and dedication to high standards in all aspects of school life that makes our school such a vibrant and energetic place to be.
We are grateful to our staff, our pupils and our parents for creating the warm, welcoming, and caring environment which exists in our school. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange an appointment to see me at any time.
Mr Enda Lydon
