Mission Statement

We treasure the personal and individual care and attention given to each child in our school and also the co-operation of the entire school community in helping us to deliver our vision for each child.


Vision Statement

The vision for St. Macartan’s NS,  Bundoran is to ensure the holistic development of each child in our school.

This development includes physical, intellectual, emotional, social, personal and spiritual development.

We hope that each child reaches their full potential in our school and that this is achieved in a happy, caring, learning environment. Our whole school plan in various curricular, extra-curricular and organisational areas will help us to deliver this vision.

The entire school community working together will also help us to realise our aims. As the school is a Roman Catholic School, this vision ties in with the Schedule of a Catholic School.


Schedule of a Catholic School

A Roman Catholic school (which is established in connection with the Minister) aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the person of the pupil: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a living relationship with God and with other people.

The school models and promotes a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Catholic school provides religious education for the pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and promotes the formation of the pupils in the Catholic Faith.
