Principal's Message

Thank you for visiting our Website! I hope you will be impressed by what you see. If you

are a parent of a boy in primary school, I think you will be impressed by what we have to offer. We have an energetic and talented staff who are committed to a quality education for our students.




We have 4 classes in 1st year and we try to provide an education which is appropriate to the ability of each boy. New students will be supported by our Pastoral system, starting off with each 1st year being given a Buddy from Transition Year to direct him at the start of the school year.

While we have a heavy emphasis on academic achievement, we also set out to provide an all-round education for our students. We encourage participation in a range of Sports and Extra-Curricular activities for students who are interested. 

The school ethos is based on the founding principles of Edmund Rice and we set out this aspiration in our Mission Statement and our Logo, A Quality Education for each student. 

We always aspire towards excellence in what we do and are ably supported by teachers who are dedicated and hard-working. In turn they are supported by a very effective discipline system. 

Lastly but certainly not least we prepare students for state examinations and provide assistance and guidance to the students in a caring atmosphere. St David’s CBS provides parents with access to their individual child’s ePortal page with four exams per academic year. We also offer a book rental system which is convenient and affordable.

Together with Deputy Principal, Alan Mynes I am proud of the pupils that make up our student body and fully believe in the potential they hold. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into life in St. David’s CBS Artane. Happy browsing!
