Scoil Ailbhe is an urban, Catholic primary school, in the Edmund Rice tradition.

The motto for Scoil Ailbhe is “A Place to Grow”, which reflects our passion for educational excellence, in a caring, happy and inclusive environment. A friendly, stimulating atmosphere exists, in which we aim

  • to produce children who are confident, fulfilled, purposeful and independent;
  • to instil qualities of leadership and responsibility;
  • to awaken childrens’ interest in all subjects;
  • to encourage a love of learning;
  • to nurture and encourage a distinctive Christian spirituality, whilst respecting those who have different beliefs;
  • to give children a love and understanding of the world, and of all they find in it.

Scoil Ailbhe celebrates diversity and values difference.  The uniqueness of each boy’s gifts and talents is developed and encouraged.  This adds to the richness of our school community, and allows each boy to grow and achieve to their full potential.
