Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of St. Martin de Porres NS.
I have been a teacher here at St. Martins for the past eleven years and have been fortunate to teach children from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. I love our school and have always strived to forge strong relationships with the children I teach, the talented teachers I work alongside and the parents and guardians of our amazing pupils. I feel extremely privileged to be given the opportunity to now lead this exciting and vibrant school forward to ensure the happiness and success of your children.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors feels welcome and excited to be here. Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to uphold the legacy of success established at St. Martins by continuing to build strong relationships with parents, pupils and the wider community and maintaining the positive, fun and nurturing environment of our school.
Here’s to a happy and healthy school year.
Mise le meas,
Our School Crest
The school originally opened under the management of the Dominican Order, but now it is under secular management under the auspices of the Archbishop of Dublin.
The school badge has the same image as that on the shield of the Dominican Order. It depicts the eternal battle between good and evil as represented by the light and dark colours.
Our school is named after St. Martin de Porres who was a Dominican lay brother. We celebrate his feast day each year on November 3rd.
Mr. de Róiste
