As principal of Star of the Sea BNS, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the school’s website. Star of the Sea is a vibrant school that has served the boys of Dublin 4 for several generations. At the school, we celebrate the many and diverse talents that our boys possess. We seek to improve at all aspects of learning each day. The school is a busy place with a broad curriculum. Our calendar is filled with yearly highlights.
The Star Boy that we aspire to play a part in forming is a young man who understands the importance of respect for himself and for others, in particular he who requires a helping hand. We place a value on learning and intellectual curiosity.
We emphasise the benefits of physical fitness, sporting endeavour and artistic creativity in practical ways. We prepare our pupils to follow the Christian example and to love their neighbour. Our past pupils enjoy it when they have an opportunity to return to the school, often saying that ‘the Star’ provided their foundation for future growth and development. We are always proud to observe the varied fields in which our past pupils have excelled and we seek to imbue our current pupils with high expectation for the future.
I hope that you might take the time to explore the school website and gain some further sense of the school and its community.
Niall Walsh, Principal
