We are a vibrant child-centred school with the happiness of our pupils at the core of our ethos. We believe that if a child is happy, they have a better predisposition towards learning.

We pride ourselves on providing an atmopshere that is conducive to a happy and engaged schooling.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our site and that you learn about all the range of activities we are involved in here in Scoil Ghormáin Naofa.

Community Pollination

We were delighted to be asked to help out with the local pollination project courtesy of Cathy Lee. Our new Ukrainian pupils brought their friends along with them for this lovely interactive project, involving SESE, PE and SPHE. We hope that lots of bees will visit this newly designated area and we were delighted to be involved!
