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.

Internet Safety

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Safer Internet Day falls on February 11th this year. You may have seen or heard ads for Webwise on TV and radio. Webwise is a website for teachers and parents which has some great advice for keeping children safe online, including explainers for several new and popular apps. Be advised that some of the information is for parents of secondary school students and therefore may appear a little “advanced”, but there are also plenty of resources for parents of primary school children.


Our School is Growing

Since opening in 2014, we have added a new class each year. For the 2019/2020 school year, we will have Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First Class, Second Class, Third Class and Fourth Class.

We have some spaces for the school year 2019/2020!

We have a small number of spaces in each of our classes for the school year 2019/2020.
