Principal’s Message

Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa (St. Kevin’s NS) has been at its current location since 1934. We are situated idyllically in the Glendalough Valley so our students have access to a learning environment that is unique and on our doorstep.

Our school is run by a hard-working and supportive Board of Management and has an active Parent’s Association whose involvement is encouraged and appreciated. It is a five classroom school with an office, learning support rooms, ASD classroom with designated support rooms and a spacious hall. We also have two hard surface play areas and a deciduous woodland where plans are underway to develop an outdoor classroom.

The four seasons are reflected in the many habitats in our school grounds including fruit and vegetables garden, heather beds and a strawberry bed.

 We are a co-educational, Roman Catholic primary school, under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. We are an inclusive school and have a strong, dynamic and interactive relationship with our local community. While our school reflects its distinctly Irish cultural, social, economic and religious past we also strive to increasingly, take cognisance of the changing nature of society.

 We endeavour to respond to our pupils as individuals and aim to achieve excellence in teaching and learning for all the children in our school. We are committed to the holistic development of the children in our care, and to making a positive difference in their lives enabling them to live in a global society.
