Mission Statement

Rathduff NS is a catholic school under the patronage of the Bishop of Cloyne which nurtures a positive co-operative educational environment and provides the opportunity for a broad education encompassing not only the academics but also sports, drama, music and social education.

Our school has a Catholic Ethos while at the same time welcoming people of different religious beliefs. We see the children as being at the centre of our school. They are number one-the reason why we are all here. Our entire school community’s focus is on the children and we work harmoniously for their education and well- being. The atmosphere in our school is very important to us and we at all times make a special effort to be friendly, welcoming, caring and inclusive.

Our aim is that each person through positive learning experiences will be stimulated to achieve his/her full potential and be able to face life confidently ,find fulfillment and be respectful in an ever-changing world.
