Our Catholic School Ethos

Scoil Oilibhéir Naofa, under the Patronage of Bishop of Meath Most Reverend Thomas Deenihan (which is established in connection with the Minister) aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects 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.


Lord, help us to take an active part in creating in this school a faith community where all feel welcomed and cherished. Guide us, so that we fully understand what a privilege it is to belong to this faith community which values respect, peace, justice and joy. May our words and deeds reflect these Christian values. Help us to support a learning environment that enables everyone to achieve their full potential and develop their natural talents. Holy Spirit guide us as we strive to be people of faith, understanding and kindness in our school. Amen.
