Vision of Clonegal NS

St. Brigid's National School in Clonegal is a Catholic school under the patronage of the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin.

It is our vision that we will educate the children in our care in accordance with the Catholic ethos of our school, while acknowledging and respecting other cultures and religious groupings. We aim to provide a caring, secure, happy and well ordered environment where everyone in the school community will feel protected, valued and accepted. We will endeavour to enhance the confidence and self-esteem of each person in our school. We promote team spirit and co-operation between all parties in education. An atmosphere of respect and care for all is fostered and a high standard of behaviour and inter personal relationships is expected.

Great emphasis is placed on providing the framework for each pupil to develop and enhance the life skills necessary for future life. We aim to provide an environment which nurtures, explores, and develops the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, moral, cultural and aesthetic development of each child as we prepare them for further education and life long learning.

In addition, we believe the child's responsibilities to themselves and to the world around them should be an integral part of their social and educational development. We view each child as an individual who must play an active part in his/her own education. This, coupled with the provision of a vibrant and stimulating school environment can make the achievement of each child's potential a reality.
