As the Junior School Principal, I am honoured to welcome you to our wonderful school where children are engaged, challenged and motivated by learning. At St Andrew’s College Junior School, we nurture children of more than forty nationalities and pride ourselves on offering a safe, supportive and stimulating environment in which students of all backgrounds, interests and abilities can flourish both academically and socially.
Our curriculum is both rich and rigorous and we are committed to supporting and challenging every student in a range of subjects. In addition to the core subjects of the Irish Primary School Curriculum, we offer a range of bespoke curricula, including Music, Art, ICT and Modern languages. Our team of highly-qualified class teachers, subject specialists and learning support practitioners are kind, caring and passionate about the growth of every child and our small class size gives opportunity for all students to find their own path and voice.
To complement the academic component of our busy timetables we have a host of events and activities that further enrich the lives and minds of our young learners. Annual concerts and plays, stunning art exhibitions and high-profile sporting events enable children to develop both resilience and confidence. During our team work (Dragon, Centaur, Griffin and Phoenix), students engage and interact with children from different classes and year groups and learn the skills of enquiry, cooperation and communication. Through charity work, children learn about the world around them and develop respect and responsibility for others. Should our students remain at St Andrew’s College for the rest of their education or perhaps move internationally, we are confident that they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes to become the next generation of outstanding thinkers, doers and simply well-rounded individuals.
At St Andrew’s College, we are proud of who we are and we hope to be part of your child’s educational journey. I look forward to meeting you soon.
