Principals’s Message


It is my pleasure as Principal to introduce you to our website. Pobalscoil Eanna, Blakestown Community School strives towards and is committed to improving our school community by fostering academic and personal development in an inclusive and caring environment, through enhancing the quality of learning.

Our school regards the needs of every child in our community as being of equal importance. Blakestown Community School is a welcoming school with a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Value is attached to all achievement, academic and non-academic. We want to prepare students for future life, well rounded individuals – in keeping with our school motto –
Education for Living.

Blakestown Community School succeeds in its aim by realizing the need of the wholehearted support of parents. We acknowledge the entrusting of your children to us to educate and I commend the existing partnership of a committed talented staff working with supporting parents as a team to encourage each child to reach his/her potential. A partnership and team I am totally committed to and enjoy being part of as Principal and look forward with great hope for many years to come.

I hope you find our website both interesting and informative
