Principal’s Welcome

A pháistí agus a chuairteoirí, cuirim fáilte mór romhaibh go léir chuig suíomh idir-líon Scoil Náisiúnta an tSlánaitheora Buachaillí, Dún Dealgan.

I am delighted to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to the official website of Redeemer Boys' N.S.  I hope that your visit will give you an insight into our vibrant school which has a unique atmosphere where the children are at ease but industrious.  We are an inclusive school with a Catholic ethos, and we welcome students from the Redeemer area and surrounding parishes. 

At Redeemer Boys' N.S. we try to maximise the ability of all children who attend our school, whether that be academically, socially or within an arts or sporting context. Our aspiration as a school is to produce well rounded individuals who can face the challenges of a modern Ireland with confidence, integrity and initiative and who, in the fullness of time, will look back with pride at their time in the Redeemer. 

We enjoy the support of a very committed school staff, a dedicated Board of Management, a very motivated Parents' Association and a wider community who are proud of their school.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

Is mise,

Le fíormheas,

Michelle Murray

Principal

 

School Profile

Redeemer Boys’ N.S. is a Catholic school for boys between the ages of three and twelve.  The school is included in Band 1 of the School Support Programme of Delivering Equality of Opportunity to Schools (DEIS).  As a direct result of this, the school is provided with extra funding and staff.  Additionally, the Redeemer parish schools share a Home School Community Liaison teacher and are involved with the School Completion initiative.  The schools also have the Early Start programme operating on-site.  This is the only pre-school in Dundalk which benefits from the expertise of a fully qualified teacher and classroom assistant.   Learning experiences in Early Start are further enhanced by the new early childhood curriculum framework, Aistear, which is currently being implemented by the pre-school staff.

The school is situated on the Ecco Road, Ard Easmuinn at the edge of Dundalk town. The present school was opened in 1971 and includes eight classrooms, an art room, offices and a multi-use hall for PE, drama, music and assemblies.   The school boasts beautiful grounds, which lend themselves to environmental studies and include a large sports field and two large playgrounds. Each classroom is well resourced with books, games and whiteboards.

The teaching staff of the school is assisted by Special Needs Assistants and the ancillary staff.  The total enrolment within the school is currently ninety. The children who attend Redeemer Boys’ N.S. come from the Redeemer parish.  Many past-pupils and parents who have moved outside the parish have retained strong affiliations with the school.  The school has a vibrant international population with representatives from several nations among the students.

There is an active School Council and Green Flag School Committee which allows platforms for our children to voice their opinions and also take responsibility for caring for the school environment.

The school is situated in the Parish of the Holy Redeemer and has close links with the church, which is a short walk away from the school. The Redeemer Boys’ N.S. sees itself as being at the centre of the community.  It has very strong links with various community and sporting organisations, in particular, Clan na Gael G.F.C., the local GAA club, with whom many of the school’s pupils and past-pupils play.  The school is proud of the strong sense of community that exists and of our caring ethos which helps to ensure a happy, safe educational environment for its pupils, teachers and parents.  

The Redeemer Parents' Association has been in existence since the earliest days of the school.  They have been a constant support to the staff and students and are very much partners in both the education of their children and in the development of the school.  

The school in the last four years has undergone a Deis Review and a Whole School Evaluation.  Both inspections had very favourable outcomes for pupils, staff and parents.
