You are very welcome to our school’s new website. St. Joseph’s N.S., Donard, Poulpeasty is a catholic co-educational primary school which caters for pupils from Infants to 6th class.

The school was built in 1949 and many extensions have since been added. Our school is a happy and nurturing school which draws on the skills and talents of our pupils, parents, staff and local community. We provide a holistic education for our pupils. We strive to provide a safe, secure environment for pupils which allows them to grow and flourish at their own pace.

We participate in a range of child led activities and initiatives, to guide and stimulate the pupils and their learning. Care is also taken to ensure that the well-being and happiness of each pupil is catered for.

School begins at 9.20am and we offer before school supervision from 9.05am. Parents can also avail of 2.00pm – 3.00pm supervision for Infants. Many of our parents requested school age childcare and Killegney Early Years provide a great service to our parents from 8.00am to 6.00pm each day with 9.05am/2.00pm 3.00pm drop off and collection by Killegney Early Years staff.

I hope that this website gives you an insight into the great work our pupils do in Donard NS. If you would like further information please contact the school.
