 Principal’s Welcome

 Dear Parents/Carers,

 St. Mary’s on the Hill is a Catholic maintained, co-educational primary school, where the child is at the centre of everything we do. We are a happy, caring school that works in partnership with all our parents and the parish community to ensure that our children make the most of their potential in academic, religious and personal development.

We enjoy a warm, welcoming, family atmosphere and it is this distinctive ethos in which the children can flourish and succeed. Our whole school community shares one common goal – to do the best for all the children in our care.

I hope that you find our web site informative and interesting. In it you will find information about the everyday running of the school, the curriculum we offer and the breadth of experiences available to our children. However, no website can convey the ‘real’ atmosphere of the school. It is only through visiting us that you will truly realise how we live our school motto:

“Learn to Love, Love to Learn.”

Yours Sincerely,

Ciarán Conway, Principal


The children are welcoming, considerate and respectful to one another and to adults. There is a notable maturity in the children’s attitude to learning and they exemplify very well the aspiration behind the school’s motto:

‘Learn to Love, Love to Learn.’
