Message from the Principal

Welcome to the St Finian’s website. Whatever your interest in our school, we are delighted that you

are taking the time to learn a little more about us. 

Our school, which was born of the rich catholic tradition of St Finian of Clonard – one of the great educators of medieval Europe – is guided by true Gospel values and strives to achieve that ideal Catholic and Christian Community, where there is a fine balance between the individual and the group, and between individual freedom and mature responsibility.  St Finian’s provides a holistic centred education in which relationships are characterised by respect, honesty, justice, sincerity, courage and compassion. We recognise the importance of faith development and we hope to provide a supportive environment where every boy and girl is encouraged to realise their potential. Our State examination results reflect the school’s high academic standards and the importance we place on teaching and learning. This, however, is not the sole focus of the school. We encourage students to participate in a wide ranging co-curricular programme and in so doing nurture their holistic development. 

If you are a current parent or student, I hope that this website provides you with up to date information on the school. If you are a prospective parent, you are welcome to contact us for further information concerning enrolment. Finally, if you are a past pupil, please renew your contact with us. You will always be part of St Finian’s and we would love to hear from you.

Mr McHale(Acting Principal)
