St. Cronan's B.N.S., under the Patronage of the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin and established in connection with the Minister of Education, aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the person of the pupil: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a living relationship with God and with other people.
Our school models and promotes a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a Catholic school, we provide Religious Education for the pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. We promote the formation of the pupils in the Catholic Faith in a manner that is welcoming to and inclusive of the presence of pupils committed to other religious traditions.
Our Christian ethos also permeates the school day through our actions, attitudes and practices:
• We provide opportunities for prayer, the celebration of liturgy and the sacraments.
• We strive to create a learning environment where every child is encouraged and enabled to develop to their full and unique potential as human beings.
• We seek to form pupils who will unselfishly use their gifts for the common good and are committed to work for a more just and caring society.
• We provide a welcoming and inclusive community that is respectful and tolerant of all religious traditions and beliefs.
St. Cronan's participates in Catholic Schools Week each year.
