Principal’s Message

Welcome to the website of St. Francis Xavier Senior National School. We are so fortunate that SFX SNS is such a vibrant and wonderfully diverse school, embracing the many different cultures we have. 

The school has been central to the community for over 45 years, educating generations of families in the area. This community has grown and changed over the years, but has always been a great supporter of the school. We are very grateful for the many partnership programmes that operate between the community and the school such as the Credit Union saving scheme that operates each Wednesday for our pupils.

St. Francis Xavier SNS too has seen great change over time, embracing many initiatives and enhancements that have happened over the years. We are very proud of our achievements. We have participated in Partnership Schools Ireland, and have also been awarded the Digital School of Distinction status, Gaelbhratach, and the Amber Flag.

Partnership is at the heart of any school’s success. We are extremely fortunate to have a wonderful partnership between staff, parents, the Board of Management, and the local community here at St. Francis Xavier Senior School. Our dedicated Board of Management and our dynamic Parents’ Association work tirelessly to support the school in its mission to create an environment in which all individuals can reach their full potential.

At St. Francis Xavier SNS, the staff always goes above and beyond the call of duty. They create a warm, welcoming, safe and happy atmosphere for everyone. They work so hard, and through their patience, care, kindness and understanding, bring out the best in every child.

We hope that you enjoy your time looking through the school website and keeping up to date with all that is happening in school. Please follow us on Twitter @xavier_sns for regular updates.

Kind Regards, 

Sean McKeown

Acting Principal
