Fáilte go dtí Scoil Naomh Peadar, Baile Phib!

We hope you are keeping well through these unprecedented times.  

We have been working on creating a fresh, new and exciting product over the past few months. Feel free to browse through our new website for news and other school related matters. 

In addition, we have been looking to enhance communication between the home and school using two remote forms of online teaching and learning (ClassDojo- Junior Infants-3rd class and Microsoft Teams from 4th-6th class) and launched them on Monday, 27th of April. We hope our pupils enjoy uploading images, pictures, written work, audio and video clips and communicating with their teachers (Dojo) and their peers (Microsoft Teams). See ICT and Digital Learning under the Pupils section for more details.


We had so many plans, initiatives and activities lined up for the year ahead (2020) to keep all of our pupils, parents and teachers on their toes. We were placing a strong emphasis on I.T. (with all classes from junior infants-6th class receiving 6 weeks of training in computer skills and digital literacy from a I.T. teacher (Cocoon I.T.) over the course of the 2019-2020 year). We are also focusing on wellbeing and wellness as part of our SSE (School Self Evaluation) for 2020-2021. We will be looking to make improvements in the areas of school culture, being more active throughout the day and taking more responsibility for keeping our school environment neat and tidy ('As a team we will keep our school clean'). Of course we will have all of our subject areas to focus on as well as our after-school activities (Sport, Art, Drama, Orchestra and after-school lessons, Irish Dancing, Science Club, Spanish lessons, Chamber choir etc.) and field trips to keep us busy throughout the year ahead.

Thanks to our wonderful class teachers, support teachers, SNAs, ancillary staff, extra-curricular coaches and teachers, magnificently supportive parents and of course our amazingly talented, enthusiastic and intelligent children.

Unfortunately, we have had to pause a lot of our planned initiatives due to Covid-19 restrictions. Hopefully, we will be able to revisit some of these initiatives as soon as possible.

We hope you continue to derive benefit from our newly refurbished website as it helps to strengthen the lines of communication between home and school. We recommend you download the Schools' Dublin App to your phone or tablet (please see email sent on the 7th of October). Teachers will be able to make direct communication with you once it is up and running. 

Le Meas,

Mr. Ryan

Grant's school supplies-school uniform information

Grants (school uniform providers) have been busy getting their website together and Thank God it has finally gone live and parents can now purchase their uniform requirements online.

The school sells crests to be ironed onto the school jumper
