Welcome

Scoil Mhuire, Davidstown Primary School is a Catholic, co-educational school that caters for all children from Junior Infants to 6th class. In Davidstown we are committed to delivering a quality education to all our pupils by encouraging them to develop and share their own unique gifts and talents in a supportive and stimulating environment.

Our primary school strives to provide a well ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.

The well-being of children is at the heart of the teaching and learning of the school, to this end the school believes in a holistic approach.

Davidstown Primary School is a Green School, a Health Promoting School, a Digital School but most importantly a Child-Centred School. In Davidstown we offer as many opportunities as we can so that we can see children grow in knowledge and reach their full potential.

Welcome to our website. I hope you enjoy finding out more about us and how we endeavour to cater for the individuality of all of our pupils.

Is mise, le meas,

Ita Connolly

There has been a huge amount of interest in enrolment in our school for September  2020.

If your child may attend our school from years 2020 onward, please register your interest with the school with child’s name and parent contact details.

As your child continues their education from pre-school, you face the very important decision of where to send your child for their primary school years. Scoil Mhuire, Davidstown is a friendly, local option that strives for both the academic and personal development for all our pupils.

The school has begun a transformation with the work and art of our students adorning the walls. There are four bright, modern classrooms, a learning support and resource room, along with a general purpose room and sensory room. There has been huge investment in technology, the science curriculum and the arts in the past year with a view to providing our students with hands-on, progressive and constructivist opportunities to engage with the curriculum. See the Pupil Activities menu above to view the curriculum enrichment programmes taking place in our school.

The grounds of the school have also begun to be transformed with a huge amount of development taking place last year, including the creation of our school fruit and vegetable garden, outdoor classroom, sensory garden trail, willow hut and new yard play markings. Our parents and pupils have more ideas to develop the grounds of the school which will be put into action in the spring.

We invite you to join us.
