Principal's Message

On behalf of everyone in our school community, pupils, teachers, staff and Management, I welcome you to our new updated and revamped website.

It is my very great privilege to server as Principal of St John the Baptist BNS, a catholic school under the patronage of the Bishop of Limerick.

Our school provides a learning environment where children can have fun, progress in their learning and develop their creativity and curiosity. We offer a setting where your children feel cared for and valued. The aim of St John the Baptist BNS is to enable each child to reach their full potential and to use their unique gifts and talents to the best of their ability – in the classroom, on the sports field and in artistic performance.

The staff and I, hope the children, their parents and families will be frequent visitors to the site and that such visits will be both enjoyable and informative. We look forward to an ongoing collaboration and your continued support in the future.

Ní neart go cur le chéile

– Mr. Nicholas
