Principal’s Welcome

It gives me great pleasure and pride, as principal of Shanballymrore N.S., to welcome you all to our school website. Shanballymore N.S. is situated in the parish of Doneraile Co Cork. This website has been created to provide relevant and important information to the pupils, staff, parents/guardians and all in the school community.

The heartbeat of our school is driven by the enthusiasm of our staff and their desire for every pupil to reach their potential in all areas, to flourish and be happy and content in a safe environment. In Shanballymore N.S., we are blessed and fortunate to have such dedicated staff, who work tirelessly to develop pupils academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Shanballymore N.S. endeavours to provide a holistic approach to education. Our Catholic ethos is characterised by our caring spirit towards all in the school community, our commitment to pupil and teacher learning, and the provision of a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.

Teamwork and communication is an important element for this to happen. We view education as a collaboration, involving everyone – pupils, parents/guardians, staff, the Board of Management, the Parents’ Association and the wider community. We work closely with parents/guardians, keeping them involved and informed about our school. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership, so that together, we can enable each pupil to reach their potential in a safe and happy school environment.

Kind regards,
John Walsh
