Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of Rathgar Junior School & Kindergarten. I am very proud to be able
to introduce you to our school which has been in the local community for over 100 years. I
hope that, as you explore this website, you will be able to see our unique quality that isrjsfrontunparalleled anywhere else in the Irish education system.

Our ethos, traditions curricular, extra-curricular and after school options enrich children’s experience of education and inspires them to pursue their own interests and aspirations. We promote a grounded education and an appreciation of our environment, nature, respectful interactions, community, friendship and charity. We encourage children to be reflective and to develop a positive growth mind-set to be open to all of their future opportunities.

Together with my Deputy Principal Sheena Flaherty, Assistant Principal Catherine McAleer
and all of the teaching and support staff at RJS we have worked hard to create a welcoming
atmosphere that children can flourish in. We value the mutual respect between teacher and
child which allows us to be more creative and build stronger bonds to help the children to
become more confident, happy and curious learners.

We see every child as an individual and with our small class sizes, we have the ability to
individually tailor their education to suit their needs. We give them every opportunity to
succeed and share in the joy when they do. We put the school community at the heart of
everything we do in RJS and by working in partnership with parents, we release the potential
of every child in our care.

If you would like any further information of what we can offer your child or you would like to
arrange a private tour to discuss a potential future for your child at RJS, then please do not
hesitate to get in contact.

Thank you,

Charles Chambers
