Welcome to Ballinteer Educate Together Primary School!  I hope that you will enjoy browsing through our website and find it informative.

We are a multi-denominational school, one of seventy-eight in Ireland, under the patronage of Educate Together.  Our ethos is inclusive and welcomes children from families of all faiths and none.  We are co-educational, child-centred and democratic, and actively encourage participation and partnership with our parents.  Equality and justice are important to us and we ensure that no child is an outsider and the individuality of each child is nurtured regardless of race, religion, gender, age, educational ability or any disability.

Under the Department of Education, we provide a stimulating and challenging educational environment where the emphasis in every area of the Primary School Curriculum is on discovery, analysis, expression, and in ensuring that each of our pupils reaches his or her full potential.
Planning for our new school building is proceeding apace, and we are working with the Department of Education to get our new sixteen-classroom school under construction.  At present, we have Junior Infants, Senior Infants and 1st Class, but, over the next few years, we will have every class up to sixth class.  If you would like to visit our school, please call Ellen, our secretary, at (01)2902220 to make an appointment.  You will be sure to receive a warm welcome from all!  The portrait of Marie above was done by Callum who is now in Senior Infants.

Best wishes,
