Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Friends of St. Malachy’s BNS,

I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to you as we launch our new school website. At St. Malachy’s Boys’ National School, we take immense pride in our legacy of educational excellence, our strong sense of community, and our commitment to inclusivity.

We are an all boys, DEIS Band 1 primary school in the heart of Dublin 5. In our vibrant and nurturing environment, every child is valued, encouraged, and empowered to reach their full potential. St. Malachy’s BNS is not just a school; it’s a family where every student is welcomed with open arms. We are immensely proud of our reputation as an inclusive school. Our commitment to inclusivity is exemplified through our two ASD classes, our MGLD class, and our Early Start programme, which caters to both boys and girls.

We are deeply embedded in our local community and are actively engaged in numerous initiatives that enrich the teaching and learning experience. As part of the local School Completion Programme (SCP), we work tirelessly to ensure that every child receives the support they need to thrive academically and personally. Our collaboration with various local and governmental agencies underscores our commitment to the welfare of children and their families.

Another cherished tradition is our rich sporting history. We believe that participation in sports not only promotes physical well-being but also fosters teamwork, discipline, and resilience. Our strong relationships with our neighbouring schools, St. Monica’s IGS and St. Eithne’s GNS, highlights the spirit of collaboration that defines our community. Together, we strive to provide the best possible educational experience for all our families.

As we embark on this digital journey with our new website, we hope it will serve as a valuable resource for parents, students, and all those who wish to learn more about our school. It will be a window into our world, showcasing the achievements, activities, and the exciting journey we are all on together here at St. Malachy’s BNS.

I would like to extend my gratitude to our dedicated staff, supportive parents, and enthusiastic students who make St. Malachy’s such a remarkable place of learning. Together, we will continue to nurture young minds, celebrate achievements, and build a bright future for all.

Thank you for being a part of our school community.

We look forward to sharing our journey with you.
