Welcome to St. Mary’s Primary School Website 


Used Stamps Appeal for Medical Missionaries of Mary.

If you have any used stamps please send them into the school office so we can forward them onto The Medical Missionaries of Mary in Drogheda. Stamps are sold to collectors and the money raised is used for their missionary work in Africa and South America. These stamps are even more valuable now due to the increasing amount of e-mails and faxes sent and less and less stamps used for postage. Please place the stamps in the box left in the Reception area.





There are new procedures for applying for a place at Primary School. This year all applications will be online.

Primary One application procedure opens with online portal available on Wednesday 2nd January 2019 at 10.00am

The closing date to submit application forms online is Thursday 31st January at 12.00 midnight

Parents will still have until 12 noon on Friday 8th February 2019 to provide supporting documentation for their application (i.e. a Birth Certificate).

Further advice will be sent to schools in coming weeks and we will endeavour to update and support you.

Further information is available on the EA website under the Admissions section at -

Please mention this to any friends who may have a child due to start school in September.
