Welcome to St Columba’s N.S. at the heart of North Strand.

Saint Columba’s National School is situated in North Strand, about 1.5km from the centre of Dublin. The school is under the patronage of the Church of Ireland and stands in the grounds of the local Anglican North Strand church. It is a primary school delivering the national school curriculum to boys and girls aged from 4 to 12 years. The school welcomes children from the local community.

Our school is a community where all students are equally valued and respected – irrespective of gender, social background, family circumstances, educational achievements, physical characteristics or intellectual functioning. The school seeks to provide a climate in which pupils experience a sense of caring and belonging and of being treated fairly.
Please explore our website to learn about life in our school and the people who make it a very special place in which to learn and teach. We hope that you can find whatever information you need from the website, but if you would like to contact us, please use the details in our contact section.

Ann Creaner,
Principal
