Welcome to St Andrew’s College Junior School, a wonderful place in which to learn (and indeed to teach!). Our main goal as educators is to ensure that our students are happy learners. In St Andrew’s we believe that students are happiest when they are engaged, challenged and excited by learning.
To this end we offer a very broad and stimulating range of subjects. In addition to the subjects of the Primary School Curriculum our students study the following with specialist teachers: French or Spanish (from Senior Infants), Music, Drama, Art, Science, PE, and Computer Studies. Each year we evaluate these subjects, seeking to offer a range which is rewarding and relevant for our students. We have introduced cello lessons this year for K2 to P4. Violin lessons continue for all P1 to P4 students.
We offer an equally varied and challenging range of extra-curricular activities, including Tennis, Hockey, Swimming, Rugby, Soccer, Basketball, Ballet, Irish Dancing, Playball, Bridge, Lego, Choir, Chess, Computer Club, Cookery and Fashion Illustration. We have a particular commitment to the Arts, offering an extensive Music Programme, for individual and group learning, and maintaining outstanding standards in Art, as witnessed in our annual Art Week.
