The Book Club takes place in the school library every Tuesday at lunchtime from 1.15 to 1.35 and is available to all first, second and third year students. Students can rent a book from the school library, swap books with friends, get involved in creative writing, book reviews etc and is a nice way for students to make new friends while also improving their reading skills.Read more ...

Our TY class (4B) have begun our Fire Safety campaign as part of our Young Social Innovators project. We decided to pick this topic as we felt it was lacking notice in our local community and we believe we can help raise awareness about the importance of Fire Safety. Our slogan for the year ahead is "Beat the flame, that's our aim!" which as a class we decided fitted the project best.
We have appointed two trust worthy leaders for the project, Killian Meade and Mikey Duggan. Currently, we are running a poster competition for our first year and second year students, which we hope will encourage more interest in this project. All support of our fire safety campaign would be greatly appreciated throughout the year.Read more ...

What Scoil Pól Offers!
Scoil Pól provides the best of modern facilities:
Communication with Parents
Scoil Pól recognises that parents are the primary educators of their children and places great emphasis on regular communication with parents. We listen to parental concerns and work in close partnership with parents to ensure that students are cared for in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Small class sizes in Scoil Pól ensure individual attention and support excellence in teaching and learning.
"Students learn more and behave better when they receive high levels of understanding, caring and genuineness".
