School Ethos And Policies

St. Joseph's GNS is a Catholic School under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. We acknowledge that each child is special and accepted for herself.

We aim to help each child develop to the best of her ability. We provide a happy and safe environment for children where learning can take place.

We promote good communication between parents and the school. We aim to ensure that children leaving school in 6th class will be equipped with the curricular skills and with the confidence necessary to succeed at second level.

We encourage children to take pride in their school and community and to have a sense of respect, honesty and integrity.
