Bridgette Cahill

It gives me great pleasure, as Principal of Scoil Fhionáín to welcome you to our school website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable source of school news and information for parents, pupils, and visitors to the site. On our website, you can check out photos of some of the many events that take place in our school. We at Scoil Fhionáín are very proud of the school with its rich tradition of teaching and learning, together with sporting activity and community involvement. Along with the Board of Management, we take great pride in providing a safe and secure learning environment for all children of varying abilities and needs. Our entire staff is committed to establishing and maintaining a school environment that allows our pupils to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Our website will be updated regularly to provide visitors with updated notices, bulletins and other news on a variety of subjects. Scoil Fhionáín is a vibrant rural school under Catholic Patronage. Children are taught to respect and appreciate each other. Our children are encouraged and motivated in a nurturing atmosphere to use their talents and fulfil their unique potential.

The children who attend Scoil Fhionáin are taught the subjects as laid out in the New Curriculum – English, Irish, Maths, History, Geography, Science, (S.E.S.E.), Social, Personal & Health Education, Music, Drama, Arts & Crafts and Physical Education. Children also take part in soccer/GAA and other sporting activities throughout the year. In addition, children in 2nd – 6th class are taught to play the tin whistle.

We work collaboratively with the Board of Management, the Parents’ Association and in partnership with parents and the wider community for the attainment of our goal of providing contemporary education to our students to prepare them to be confident participants in their tomorrow.
