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 BNS have begun the process of amalgamation with St. Brigid’s Primary School next door and both schools are now taking girls and boys. However, we await the completion of our new St. Christopher’s Primary School building to finish the amalgamation process.

St. Mary’s/St. Brigid’s Primary School provide a child-centred education for pupils from Junior Infants to 6th class in line with the primary school curriculum laid down by the Department of Education and Skills.

Committed to encouraging and supporting each pupil to reach his/her full potential, St. Mary’s BNS/ St. Brigid’s Primary School foster a love of education in a disciplined and safe atmosphere where the pupils are enthusiastic and active in their approach to learning for life.

OUR NEW SCHOOL ST. CHRISTOPHER’S PRIMARY SCHOOL, TO OPEN IN 2019-20

Unfortunately , due to circumstances outside our control, the building project stopped in July 2017. The Department of Education and Skills and the Design Team are working hard to engage a new builder and hope to complete St. Christopher’s Primary School as quickly as possible. We hope to take up residence there in September 2019!

We have been  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 had 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. All monies raised for the new school are in a joint Fundraising Account and will be used only to purchase the items on our “Wish List”!

Please see details below re Booking.com as a fundraiser for us!
