A Message from Our Principal, Johanne O’Sullivan

Johanne O'Sullivan

I am delighted to welcome you into our school community. As the Principal in a newly established school I am enjoying the development of relationships with students, parents and the local community.

Shellybanks ETNS is a happy, vibrant school where all children will be given the opportunity of learning in a caring, stimulating environment. We aim to give your child the opportunity to develop into a well rounded individual.

The warm, welcoming and caring environment that exists in Shellybanks ETNS has been nurtured by our pupils, teachers, parents/guardians, PTA and Board of Management since the school opened in 2014.

Since opening Shellybanks ETNS has become a vibrant city school that emphasises active learning and mutual respect is at the core of what we do. We believe it is important that as a parent / guardian you feel welcome in the school. Education is a partnership between home and school with a shared responsibility based on trust and mutual understanding. The co-operation and participation of parents with our school in the education of their child is positively encouraged.

Our new name reflects the location of our permanent school site, on the Roslyn Park campus, in Sandymount Village. We moved to this new location in September 2019 and are looking forward to many great years ahead.

The Student Council have decided to run a Pyjama Day on Friday the 29 th of November. On this day you can wear your pyjamas to school and bring a teddy bear. We will then have a cosy afternoon with our teddy bears and a movie. The Student Council would like to raise money for Inner City Homelessness charity. If you take part in Pyjama Day members of the Student Council will collect donations of €2. Please remember to still wear your coats, warm pyjamas/ clothes underneath and sensible shoes as we will have a normal school day with assembly and yard time.
