About Our School

Principal’s Welcome

As Principal of Summercove National School, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to our school website. I hope that through its pages, you will get a feel of the wonderful teaching and learning that takes place in our school and that you get an insight into the terrific opportunities that are afforded to the children who attend Summercove N.S.

We believe that the spirit of Summercove N.S. lies in our commitment to guide our pupils to realise their academic, moral, holistic and social potential. We emphasise the need for pupils to develop a broad range of skills, competencies and values that enable personal well-being, active citizenship, and lifelong learning.

We have a very vibrant school, and our wonderful team of dedicated staff work together to create an inclusive and successful learning environment where everyone feels happy, safe, respected and valued. In partnership with our pupils, parents, the Board of Management, and the Parents’ Association, we strive to provide each child in our school with a rich educational experience and to help every child to reach their full potential. NĂ­ neart go cur le chĂ©ile.

Le gach dea ghuĂ­,
Louise Hallissey
