St Laurence's is a small two class primary school offering an unrivalled pupil/teacher ratio and a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all our pupils.

Thanks for visiting!


World Book Day 2019

St Laurence's certainly got into character for World Book Day 2019.  Each pupil came dressed as their favourite book character and what an array of characters we had - do you recognise any?????   

We walked 'in character' to Ballyfermot Library where each child chose a book and settled into buddy reading.....

What a great day and, hopefully, this enthusiasm for books will continue throughout the year.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Bhíomar an-gnóthach i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge i mbliana! 
We ran a Siopa Cáca bake sale and raised over €100 for Barretstown. We learned the Hakka Gaelach and roared our Irish verbs ferociously! We combined the classes to hold a massive game of Biongó. We took our cúpla focal out into the community and went to visit our senior friends at Glenaulin Nursing Home. The week culminated in a Lá Glas agus Seó Tallainne íontach ar an Aoine - bhíomar bródúil as iarracht ár bpáistí, rinne siad a ndícheall ar fad!  

An Haka as Gaeilge - An Físeán


Incredible Edibles is a healthy eating initiative for Primary School pupils. It encourages schools across the country to get busy growing carrots, lettuce, potatoes, strawberries, turnips and herbs. St Laurence's, eager to get involved, signed up and were supplied with grow packs containing everything we need to grow a veritable feast of healthy foods! There's still work to be done in tending to our grow packs but we look forward to watching our fruit and vegetables grow......

St Laurence's Senior Room pupils made waves at the Palmerstown Credit Unit schools quiz......

Huge congratulations to our Senior Room pupils, who represented St Laurence's so well at the Palmerstown Credit Union Quiz, held at Pobalscoil Iosolde on Friday 1st February. Our Under 11s were joint winners, before being narrowly defeated in a nail-biting tie-breaker round to finish in a fantastic 2nd place. Our 6th class girls also made great waves in the Under 13s competition, scooping 3rd prize in the end. We are very proud of them and thanks to all the parents who came along to support them on the night.
