Nagle-Rice Primary School

Nagle-Rice Primary School is a vertical co-educational school with a pupil enrolment of 372.

The child is at the heart of our school and so our focus is on the development of the whole child; academic, spiritual, emotional, social, moral, physical and cultural.

We aim to provide each child with an academic education to the highest standard within a safe, happy and supportive environment.

Principal’s Welcome Message

On behalf of everyone in our school community, pupils, staff, parents, members of the Board of Management and the Parents Association, I welcome you to our new school website which I hope will provide you with a ‘window’ into school life here at Nagle-Rice Primary school. This website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer the children and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work.

Nagle-Rice Primary School was established in 2006 following the amalgamation of ‘Scoil Maria Assumpta’ girls’ school and ‘Scoil Mhuire’ boys’ school. We are a mixed Catholic school situated in the heart of the county equidistant from all the main towns. We are blessed with a spacious new fully equipped school including a state of the art All-Weather Pitch, an Outdoor Basketball Court, an Indoor Sports Hall and an amazing Sensory Garden.

In accordance with our Catholic Ethos, we promote the holistic  development of all our pupils to reach their own individual potential in a supportive, inclusive and kind environment. We recognise the importance of hard work contributing to the pupils’ achievements which is in keeping with our school motto: “Níl bua gan dua“.

Here in Nagle-Rice Primary School, we are fortunate to have extremely dedicated teachers and staff. We constantly strive to provide an enjoyable educational experience for our pupils. We serve a very diverse population and currently have families in the school from over twenty different countries. This is something we are very proud of and we organise events throughout the year to welcome and celebrate the different cultures and languages in our school community. My wish for all our pupils is that each one reaches his/her full potential and has a happy and fulfilling school life here in Nagle-Rice Primary School.

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Ms. Aileen O’Dowd
