Griffeen Valley Educate Together National School

Congratulations to Fiona’s 4th Class for first place in the nationwide ‘Different Families, Same Love’ Competition!

Welcome parents, guardians, teachers and students. 

Thank you for visiting our new school website to learn more about Griffeen Valley Educate Together National School. Our school was established in Lucan in 2002. Since then, our school has grown and flourished into the wonderful place that it is today.

We are very proud of our fantastic pupils – past and present. As an Educate Together School the motto ”Learn Together to Live Together” is central to our school day, as are the four strands of the Learn Together Curriculum – Moral and Spiritual, Ethics and the Environment, Belief Systems and Equality and Justice.

Teaching at Griffeen Valley ETNS has always been an honour and a pleasure. Since 2006, through the roles of Assistant Principal, Deputy Principal, Acting Principal and Principal, I have had the opportunity to work alongside an excellent group of colleagues, pupils and parents.

I am excited about our journey, along with the school community, in guiding Griffeen Valley ETNS as we continue to blossom and thrive.

Mise le meas,

SFI STEM Curious Minds Gold Award Winners

Well done to Melanie and Michelle for all their hard work in organising this year’s entry. Our students made a fantastic effort yet again! Here’s the feedback we received:
“Congratulations to all in Griffeen Valley Educate Together NS on achieving your SFI Curious Minds Gold award. Your log was clearly laid out and contained a comprehensive mix of activities across all classes. Such fantastic work going on by your Green Schools Committee so that pupils have lots to admire and eat. Your school entered some extremely interesting projects into Science Blast and I am sure they will never forget the experience. What a fantastic way to incorporate technology into real life during your school elections. Great idea. Your learners created some wonderful bridges and then visited a local bridge to again link their experiences to real-life. The Design and Make activities were of a very high standard. A wonderful entry full of many fun investigations Well done.”
