Welcome to the Monkstown Park Junior School Website

principalPrincipal’s Message

Welcome to Monkstown Park Junior School. Our school caters for pupils from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. We have a full and varied curriculum that brings the best out of every child. I am delighted to announce that our school has a designated Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths suite or STEM suite. All the pupils from Junior Infants to Sixth Class have designated class times within the suite. The STEM suite is one of the first of its kind in Ireland. There are many overlaps and correlations between the aims and objectives within the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths within the national curriculum and therefore the teachers aim to teach these subjects in conjunction with one another.

Each pupil within the school is assigned to one of the four House Teams. As part of the long established House system the children regularly work with their teammates on group projects. We have small class numbers which allow us to promote a creative child-led environment within our classrooms, whereby the topics being studied are developed by the children in partnership with the teaching staff across a range of curriculum subjects. An integrated approach works well with pupils working collaboratively with each other and also their teachers to investigate real life scenarios.

We are lucky to be situated on a large campus and our pupils are periodically taken into their environment to explore curriculum subjects from a different point of view. Through this approach the children understand that topics being studied can be found all around them in their everyday lives not just within the classroom. This style of teaching helps our pupils become independent learners and develop life-long skills that can be used across the curriculum but also throughout their daily lives.


As our pupils journey through the school their natural talents are nurtured as they experience an environment of inclusiveness where all their achievements are valued and celebrated at our weekly assemblies. At Monkstown Park Junior School pupils, parents, staff and the governing body work collaboratively to foster a climate of trust that motivates and encourages, helping all of us achieve our collective goals. This practice of openness and inclusiveness reflects the strong educational and moral values within our school. 

I would encourage you to make an appointment to view our school and experience the unique experiences Monkstown Park Junior School has to offer.

Kindest Regards,

Veronica Ward

Fantastic school! My son loves it. He is so happy there. Lovely bunch of kids, great teachers, lots of sport, music, drama etc and with a new senior school being built we are thrilled that he can continue his education in the same school. The small classes are great academically, lots of one on one attention. Highly recommend it, worth every penny!

My son loves this school. He's in second class now and the school has a lovely feel to it - small and friendly. Now that the senior school is getting a new build, it's nice to know that he's sorted for secondary school as well.
