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 2018.

Class Names

The Student Council will be working with Aileen to develop class names for the school. Each class will feedback their ideas of categories that they would like the classes to be called e.g colours, flowers etc. We are looking forward to hearing the children’s ideas.

Massive thank you to all those who supported the Enterprise Winter Market on Wednesday. It was a big success for the Enterprise children! From the Halloween Market and the Winter Market combined, the children raised €229.55. They have chosen to donate this money to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Thank you to everyone who helped the children achieve this. Gemma
