Always Do Your Best

Déan do dhícheall i gcónaí

Our school’s motto is
“Déan do dhícheall i gcónaí, Do your best always”. Both staff & pupils try to live out this motto each day in partnership to ensure a warm & welcoming environment.

A Century of Excellence

Online New School Campaign

St. Finian's N.S. is a Catholic ethos school, situated in the outskirts of the picturesque village of Waterville, a caring community, where pupils are supported and encouraged to achieve their full academic potential while also participating in a wide range of artistic, cultural and sporting activities. We are a co-educational school catering for children from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. Our school has 4 Teaching Staff, 2 Special Education Teachers, 4 SNA's and a Secretary.

Due to immense overcrowding and cramped conditions, St. Finian's is currently campaigning to build a new school. Our current school building is over 100 years old, therefore all classrooms are below the minimum size as per the Department of Education Guidelines. We would ask all parents and members of the community to lobby their public representatives at every opportunity for the future of our children.
