St Mary's Boys School

A word from the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to St. Mary’s! Fáilte go Scoil Mhuire!

St Mary’s BNS all boys’ Catholic primary school for boys from Junior Infants to Sixth class. We have a long and proud tradition of educating boys in Booterstown, Co Dublin. We at St. Mary’s BNS are committed to educating the whole child, and our broad school curriculum and ethos focuses not only on the academic, but also on the spiritual, the creative, and the physical development of our boys. Our curriculum, based on the Department of Education and Skill primary syllabus, is both traditional and innovative and is supplemented by a variety of social, cultural, sporting, and charitable activities. Our talented and supportive staff, through all of their contacts with our pupils, promote the Gospel values of inclusion, an enthusiasm for life, a pursuit of excellence, for learning and for individual growth within a closely-knit and supportive school community.
