Welcome to Goatstown/Stillorgan Educate Together National School
We are a new primary school for the Goatstown/Stillorgan/DunLaoghaire Rathdown area that opened for the first time in September 2019 taking in Junior Infants only. We will expand year on year up to 6th Class.
We are initially based in temporary accommodation at Grafton House in Sandyford Industrial Estate.
We are delighted to have been given the honour of opening this new primary school and are very excited about the wonderful opportunity that exists to forge a new, inclusive school where all stakeholders are respected and valued.
From Our Principal
Goatstown/Stillorgan ETNS strives to make children confident and creative builders of their own futures. We are committed to providing learning experiences that will assist our students to achieve their greatest potential to adapt and adjust to a diverse and ever changing world. The students are encouraged to meet academic challenges with openness, enthusiasm, and a willingness to solve problems. We aim for an atmosphere of cooperation and collaboration, with respect for individual differences and the understanding that diversity of gender, physical or mental ability, culture, and background is a strength to be respected.
We strive in cooperation with parents and the whole school community to provide a holistic education in a caring and secure environment where each child is encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability. An important part of our school approach is the philosophy of ‘Restorative Practices’ as a way of building and maintaining relationships, which in turn will lead to positive outcomes for the health and well-being of our community.
