St. Patrick’s National School
St Patrick’s National School has a rich history, going back more than a century. The school was originally located in La Touche Place, Greystones. The two-classroom building continued as our parish school until its relocation to a four-classroom building on the present site in 1975.
The school was extended in 1990 when two more classrooms were added. By 1992 the school population had grown sufficiently to require temporary accommodation for a seventh classroom, with an eighth added in 1996.
We believe that we now have the best resources in place to support the effective implementation of the Primary School Curriculum, and to provide a fine facility that supports the school’s Mission Statement in its aim ‘to provide a safe, caring, happy and disciplined environment where children’s self-esteem, self-confidence, initiative and innovation can be nurtured within an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation’.
Temple Carrig Secondary School is proud of its links with the local community and seeks to build on those links. The Board of Management of Temple Carrig Secondary School is also mindful of the patronage of the School and of the particularly Church of Ireland ethos of the School which permeates all aspects of the education of our pupils.
The Board of Management and our staff, work to promote moral and spiritual values in our students and inculcate the standards of personal responsibility and respect inherent in the religious ethos of the School. While it is a Church of Ireland School, our pupils come from widely differing faith traditions and many come from backgrounds of no faith at all.
Our School works to take those moral and personal values which are strongest in our faith and promote those values amongst our entire student body regardless of their faith background.
