WHAT WE DO
Ours is a school with a Catholic ethos and a spirit of mutual respect is promoted within the school. It is our endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of all in the school community and to imbue in the pupils a sense of respect and responsibility for themselves, others, the school, the local community and the environment.
We encourage the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of the curriculum and in the personal development of the children.
We welcome and encourage parents as partners in our school and we aim to foster a sense of community between management, teachers, parents and pupils.
Naul National School will strive to promote both individually and collectively the personal and professional development of staff within a collaborative and collegial setting.
encourages students of all ages to take steps to increase their levels of understanding of the unequal world we live in; to develop their sense of responsibility both for themselves, and the local, national and international communities they live in. It is vital that the younger generation are given the opportunity to become effective contributors and responsible citizens within the world they live.
Encouraging primary school-aged students to think of others and take action to help those less fortunate is a hugely beneficial experience.
