We, the staff of St. Felim’s National School, hope that each child will enjoy and benefit from his/her time in this school.
St. Felim’s NS is an extension of society, an extension of the home. It is not just a place where children are educated, but also where children are equipped with the necessary skills, values and attitudes to cope with and contribute towards our society. The ethos of the school is Catholic with due recognition for other religions.
The Alive-O religious programme is followed in all classes. Children are prepared for First Communion in Second Class and for Confirmation in Sixth class. In this atmosphere of respect the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth of the children is fostered.
