Mission Statement and Ethos

The Divine Word National School is a co-educational, Catholic primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere and environment where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the children are identified and addressed.

While the Divine Word National School is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.

The Divine Word National School will strive to promote, where possible, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes.

The Divine Word National School will encourage the involvement of parents through home/school contacts and through their involvement in the Divine Word Parents' Association.

The Divine Word National School will endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the children respect for people and property and to encourage in them the idea of being responsible.

The Divine Word National School will promote gender equity amongst teachers and children.

Déanfamid iarracht gaeilge a lathairt. The present school motto is "Mol an Óige agus tiocfaidh sí".
