Principal’s Welcome

School Principal – Mr. Seán Stack

Fáilte roimh Scoil Iósaif an Fhionnradharc.

The original school building has existed in its prominent position along Fairview Strand since 1888. Our grounds have expanded over time, and most recently we have added a technology ‘wing’ to the school with a range of classrooms and workshops. The school is a blend of the tradition of success embedded in the culture alongside the future and potential of the next generation. It is a most exciting time here in St. Joseph’s over the next few years, and our students avail of one of the most modern curricula and facilities in the country. 

We take pride in our welcoming environment and in the sense of community engendered by a spirit of co-operation among staff, students, and parents. The ethos of an Edmund Rice school is lived out by the students as they interact with their community, whether locally, nationally or internationally. We have a close interaction with our local community. Student involvement in all areas of school life is key to our success. The professionalism and generosity of our staff ensure the highest standards of education for life.

As you browse our website or App, you will see a vibrant community, and evidence of excellence in education. Our students demonstrate daily in the school the best of our values and ambitions. I hope you get a sense of this as you explore.
