A special Céad Míle Fáilte to the Good Shepherd NS, Churchtown. We pride ourselves on our inclusive, child- centered learning environment and really hope that our website will provide you with a glimpse of the warm, supportive learning setting that our school is renowned for.

The Good Shepherd National School is a very happy and safe place where every child matters. We look forward to working in partnership with you in the interest of your child’s all round learning and personal development. We believe that if a child’s first experience of school is one of happy involvement a very good foundation will have been laid for fruitful school years ahead.

We have a wonderful, dedicated staff and you can be assured of our full co-operation and commitment at all times. All of us here on the Good Shepherd team strive to make our school a happy, safe space in which all our pupils can flourish and reach their own individual potential.

We look forward to working with both yourselves and your children.
