Ss. Peter and Paul N.S. is a co-educational school, founded by the Department of Education and steeped in a rich history. Originally founded in 1880, with current school building established in 1964, Ss. Peter and Paul N.S. pride themselves on the continuous strong links that are established within the local community. We strive to achieve the highest standards of excellence in all areas of teaching and learning for our students. We aim to provide a positive and stimulating learning environment that helps every child to develop intellectually, culturally, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.
As a strong sporting community, we are lucky to have deep-rooted associations with S&F Football Club, Moy Davitts Football Club and local hurling clubs. We are in the privileged position to be able to work closely with the Michael Davitt Museum on the foundation of the first ever Childrens’ Land League, following in the footsteps of Michael Davitt who was a strong advocate for social justice. We are committed to sustainability in Ss. Peter & Paul N.S. From the collaboration between dedicated staff, pupils and the school community, we are proud to have received our 6th Green-schools Flag.
We cherish and welcome cultural and religious diversity in our school. Children from different countries, ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs are welcome to attend our school and we wholeheartedly embrace multi-culturalism and multi-ethnicity. Practicing the Roman Catholic ethos in Ss. Peter & Paul N.S., our local church has a special place in our school community. The Board of Management and staff are highly committed to the Catholic ethos. We believe our school community is inspired by the vision and values of Ss. Peter and Paul. We take part in preparation for sacraments, attend choir, serve and celebrate church holidays. We co-ordinate Grandparents Day within Catholic Schools Week.
A commitment to community development is successfully embedded within our school’s culture, providing a deep and unyielding foundation upon which we can work in unity and harmony to build a strong and successful school community.
