Welcome to St. Raphaela's Primary School, Stillorgan
Our Principal, Ms. Corry
Each child that joins us in St. Raphaela’s is given the opportunity to grow and develop in a happy, nurturing and supportive environment. We have a long established tradition of excellence across all areas of education and pupil development. Maria Doheny is our Deputy Principal and together we are proud to lead a school that is committed to “nurturing minds to think, hands to create and hearts to love”. Our teachers take great pride in celebrating individual pupil talents, abilities and learning styles daily.
At St. Raphaela’s, our school day and ethos is rooted in a strong living faith. Guided by our values we promote respect for ourselves and others and an understanding of personal and social responsibility. We encourage each child to have a sense of wonder and joy, a willingness to take chances, and learn from their experience. With this, our children develop confidence in their own ability and ultimately recognise their power to effect change in their lives and the world around them.
We hope this website will give you an insight into the spirit of our school and the life of St. Raphaela’s Primary School. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
