Welcome to St Joseph’s NS

I am delighted to welcome you to St. Joseph’s National School in Arklow.

St. Joseph’s prides itself on being a friendly and engaging school focused on learning and growing in a caring environment.

Our teachers are dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to meet the needs of all of our students. We nurture each pupil within a committed and mutually supportive community; where staff, parents and students alike strive for progress and achievement in all areas of school life.

We cherish our children at St. Joseph’s and we do everything within our power to maximise their full intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual potential.

Relationships are at the core of what we do and our teachers pride themselves on knowing their learners well and taking responsibility to ensure that each child is working to achieve personal excellence. 

At St. Joseph’s we strive to provide opportunities for all students to pursue their passions and interests across many contexts.

We want our learning community to be one where our children can feel at ease with who they are as individuals and achieve to their very best ability.

We invite you to be part of our St. Joseph’s learning family and look forward to working alongside you to provide the best possible education for your child during the important years of schooling.

Warm regards,

Corrina Bailey

School Principal
