Principal’s Welcome

Dear Parents/Guardians and all visitors to our school website,

Thank you for visiting our website today!

St Mary’s and St Gerard’s is a dynamic Catholic Primary school with a caring, close school community. We value respect and connection among all our learners and staff. We hope to ensure that all of our pupils are happy and feel part of a thriving school. We work hard together to make sure that the learning in St Mary’s and St Gerard’s is exciting and inspiring. We want our pupils to love learning as a result of their experiences in our school.

St Mary’s & St Gerard’s is a school where connection, caring and a love of learning is central to what we do. SPHE is an important part of the vision where we build the values of love, respect, love of learning in our lessons and through our way of being in school. We work hard to ensure that our pupils feel cared for. We are confident they are caring pupils towards their peers as a result of this support. They will build social skills and feel connected to themselves and others. Our vision is also based on our setting in Enniskerry, so close to nature; we  build strong local connections in our school building and strong awareness of the environment.

Our strong links to our parish and to our parents ensure that all are welcome in our school: Is ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine. 

You will get a snapshot of our school life reflected on our website here, so please keep in touch with us if you would like to get more information or to get more involved in our school community.

I look forward to working with all of our children, staff, parents, Board of Management  and our community here in Enniskerry this year!


Warmest Regards,

Deirdre Morgan,
