St. Pat's, A School of Excellence

St. Pat’s is a large City Centre Boys’ Primary School catering for boys from 2nd to 6th classes. The catchment of the school covers the whole of Galway City and neighbouring townlands and villages.

The School prides itself on poviding a safe and happy environment where students can learn, play and reach their full potential. The highly skilled staff present a balanced and relevant curriculum suitable to the child’s needs and do so by employing approaches and methodologies that tap into the child’s sense of wonder and natural curiosity.

Pupils are constantly encouraged and affirmed and the dignity and uniqueness of each child is given a high priority.

St. Pat’s second level school is St. Joseph’s College (“The Bish”) in Nuns’ Island.  The majority of Pat’s boys transfer there when they have completed their primary schooling. 

Sports Day 2016 was a huge success!!!
