Principal’s Welcome

As principal of Maynooth Educate Together NS, I would like to warmly welcome you to our school website.

Our Co-Educational primary school is situated on the outskirts of the town of Maynooth Co. Kildare and caters for pupils from 4-12 years of age. Maynooth ETNS operates under the patronage of Educate Together and is equality based, co-educational, child-centred and democratically run. We strive to provide a broad learning experience which nurtures each child in all dimensions of their lives by employing a variety of approaches to teaching and learning in order to cater for the varying needs of individual children, thus creating a positive learning environment for all. Our goal is to empower our pupils and to nurture in them a love of learning in their formative years that will serve them for all their lives.

Enshrined in the Educate Together Charter is the obligation to put our pupils at the centre of everything we do and therefore, in Maynooth Educate Together NS, we live by the mottos; Learn Together to Live Together and No Child is an Outsider. Learn Together is our Ethical Education Curriculum (2022). It consists of four strands: An Ethical Approach to the Environment, Equality and Justice, Values and Ethical Perspectives and Belief Systems. Parents are seen as partners in the mutual education of their children and are encouraged to become involved in the development of the school through the Parent Teacher’s Association and the Board of Management. We deeply value our relationship with our local community and actively promote our pupils’ and their families involvement in their community.

I invite you to explore our website, which I hope you find informative and I look forward to meeting you in the future.
