Mission Statement & Ethos
Ballymurray National School is a Catholic primary school established under the patronage of the Bishop of Elphin. Our school aims to promote the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the pupil; intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a loving relationship with God and with other people.
The teachings of Christ inform all our efforts and the way in which we treat each other. We aim to lead the children to a deeper knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith and to make prayer, worship and liturgy meaningful and relevant experiences for all.
The school endeavours to recognise, develop and appreciate the dignity and uniqueness of each child in a happy, caring and safe environment where respect for both people and the environment is central, thus enabling children to strive with confidence towards their full potential.
In order to fulfil our Mission we share these core values
Love and mutual respect
Dedication and loyalty
Justice and fairness
Honesty and trust
High expectations for each other
A commitment to a culture of continuous self-improvement
A willingness to cooperate and share our gift for the good of all
