About St Laurence’s.

We believe in the education of the whole child; intellectual, moral, physical, aesthetic, social and spiritual. As teachers, we prepare
children for further education and would like to see all our pupils grow up to live full and useful lives as adults in society.

Our aim is to provide a learning environment in which each pupil is encouraged to develop his capabilities to the fullest possible extent.

The pupils in our school are expected to give of their best and to achieve high standards of work and behaviour. We believe that a child who is content in school makes the best progress.

Parents are welcome at any time. Casual and speedy contact is part and parcel of life. If you believe that your contact is going to be of
an extended nature, please make an appointment, through the office, for a mutually convenient time.

Through co-operation and mutual support, we can help each pupil live a full and happy life as a child and at the same time acquire the skills which will help them on the road towards adulthood.



Scoil Lorcán Naofa can trace it’s past back to the founding of the first Boy’s National School in Stillorgan Village, opposite the present day Shopping Centre, on 25th May 1840.

The school moved to what is now it’s current site in 1931 and experienced major extensions and renovations in 1931, 1986 and 2007. All classrooms are now ensuite and networked for internet access.

From a modest start in 1840 with 56 pupils to a high with over 750 pupils in the 70’s to a current total of 452.
