Saint Enda’s National School, Lisdoonvarna, a Roman Catholic School (which is established in connection with the Minister for Education) aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the person of the pupil: intellectual, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual, including a living relationship with God and with other people. The school models and promotes a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Catholic school provides religious education for the pupils in accordance with the doctrines, practices and tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and promotes the formation of the pupils in the Catholic Faith.

St. Enda’s National School is inclusive and welcomes pupils of the Catholic faith, of other faiths and of no religious faith, subject to the full enrolment criteria. The school respects the beliefs and practices of each child in accordance with our ethos of inclusivity, welcome and mutual respect.

(This mission statement is closely-based based on our school’s formal and foundational legal schedule, and on our religious education policy.)
