A Message from our Principal
My name is Alma Moran and I am delighted to have worked at Mary, Mother of Hope since the school was established in 2001. I was honoured to be appointed as Principal of the Junior School when it was opened in 2008 and I thoroughly enjoy leading this busy, warm and vibrant educational community where the highest levels of care, attention and professionalism are upheld on a daily basis.
Our school has a Catholic ethos while at the same time welcomes children of all faiths and none. We have 16 mainstream classes for children from Junior Infants to Second Class and we will soon open a special class for children of a similar age with autism. The community of Mary, Mother of Hope J.N.S consists of 441 wonderful boys and girls, 27 talented teachers, 7 superb Special Needs Assistants, Anita our Secretary, Séanna our Caretaker , Anna and Daniella our Cleaners and a wonderfully supportive parent body.Together we strive to ensure that we are providing a true centre of excellence for the children of Littlepace/Castaheany. We also maintain strong links with Mary, Mother of Hope S.N.S with whom we share our campus.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. I hope you enjoy your visit. If you already have links with our school I hope you check the website regularly to keep yourself informed of what is happening at Mary, Mother of Hope J.N.S. If you are considering sending your child to our school we hope that our website presents you with all of the information you need and we look forward to meeting you in person in the future.
A message from our Deputy principal
My name is Maeve Callery and I am the Deputy Principal at Mary, Mother of Hope Junior National School. I work closely with the Principal Ms Moran and all of the other staff to ensure that all of the children in our school receive the best possible educational experience during their time with us.
At Mary, Mother of Hope JNS we are very lucky to have a highly motivated and creative team of teachers who, with the support of our ancillary staff work tirelessly to deliver the primary school curriculum, balancing all subjects and using a variety of teaching styles and methodologies, ensuring that all of our children engage fully with their learning. All of the children in our school are encouraged to reach their potential and are praised regularly for their achievements.
Our school community is enriched by the active role which our parents play in school life. Our Parents Association offer constant support to one another, to the children and to the staff. Many of our parents also help out in our classes, attend our parent and toddler group and attend various VEC run classes held here in the school. Each member of our school community - our children, our parents and our school staff are treated at all times with mutual respect adding to the positive and vibrant atmosphere that prevails in our school.
Please take some time to browse our website and make sure to check back in regularly to keep updated with news and events in our school.
