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 planned location of our permanent school building, in the Roslyn Park site, in Sandymount. We are currently located on the grounds of the RDS, on Simmonscourt Road, Ballsbridge. We are looking forward to many great years ahead in our new location. This is planned for September 2019.

Sandymount Tidy Towns

A notice from the Sandymount Tidy Towns Community Association:

I write to you all on behalf of the Sandymount Tidy Towns Community Association (STTCA) to inform you that we have initiated a new biodiversity educational project involving the installation of box hedging which will house a wide variety of herbs and bee friendly plants around the ESB Sub-Station in Sandymount Green.

To this end, and before you break-up for the summer, STTCA would greatly appreciate if you could ask your students to respect this project and refrain from playing ball and games around this general area in The Green.  Any such damage would undo the good voluntary work of the STTCA. It is currently a work in progress
