WELCOME TO ST. MARY’S BNS, HADDINGTON ROAD, BALLSBRIDGE, DUBLIN 4.
St. Mary’s is a Catholic Primary School serving the local community and fostering the overall development of its pupils in a caring environment. We also welcome pupils of other cultures and religions.

St. Mary’s provides a child-centred education for boys from 1st to 6th class in line with the primary school curriculum laid down by the Department of Education and Skills. Most of our pupils begin their education in St. Brigid’s Primary School, which is adjacent to St. Mary’s. They spend two years there, during which time they complete their Infant Programme.

Committed to encouraging and supporting each boy to reach his full potential, St. Mary’s fosters a love of education in a disciplined and safe atmosphere where the boys are enthusiastic and active in their approach to learning for life.

OUR NEW SCHOOL ST. CHRISTOPHER’S PRIMARY SCHOOL, TO OPEN IN 2017-18

Our new school building, St. Christopher’s Primary School, will see the amalgamation of St. Mary’s BNS and St. Brigid’s Primary School during 2017-18 school year. However, we hope to merge some of our classes in September 2017. Details to follow.  Applications for 1st class boys should continue to come to St. Mary’s BNS as outlined above, although all 1st classes will remain in St. Brigid’s building in their current mixed groups.

We are currently actively fundraising for a Library/IT hub, school garden, community kitchen, playground soft surface, playground equipment and many other items for our new school. We have many very successful events to date, a concert in St. Mary’s Church, Ladies Mini Marathon,cake sales, non uniform days, a corporate lunch in The Dylan Hotel, a Christmas Fair, a bag pack in Tesco and many more! We are always looking for ideas and support for our campaign. Please see details below re Booking.com as a fundraiser for us!
