Teacher Writing a Formula on a Blackboard


  • Our school is located on the Main Street in Celbridge Co.Kildare, directly in the centre of the village.

  • The school has just under 500 pupils, 24 teachers, 2 Special Needs Assistants, 3 school secretaries and a caretaker.

  • Our school was originally founded by the Holy Faith Sisters.

  • The school comprises 20 classrooms in two school buildings, a General Purpose Hall and a Computer Room. We have a number of smaller rooms which are used for resource and learning support classes. In 2010 a new Reception Area, offices and Resource room were added. We were honoured to have President McAleese visit the school to mark the completion of this project.

  • We have invested a large amount of resources to improve our I.C.T. facilities. Each classroom teacher has a teaching laptop and there is an interactive whiteboard in each classroom. Our computer room has 15 networked pcs.

  • The Principal is Ms Delia O’Donnell and the Deputy-Principal is Ms. Breeda Meleady

  • The school caters for Junior Infants up to Sixth Class, at present we have 18 classes in the school.

  • We have four green flags. The first three for recycling, energy saving and water conservation were achieved in previous years and we have just been awarded the fourth green flag for work in the area of transport.

  • Our school motto is ‘Ní neart go cur le chéile’ (together we are stronger / there is strength in unity).

  • The school crest consists of our motto; dancing shoes and music notes to represent our tradition of Irish dancing and music, a book and pen for knowledge and learning, The Holy Faith Sisters emblem to reflect our foundation and history and shaking hands to represent the many nationalities and cultures now part of our school community.

  • Our school crest was designed by the children in the school.
