Lisvernane NS is a School which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure learning environment, where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of our pupils are identified and addressed. While Lisvernane N.S. is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also gives due recognition to children of all other religious beliefs and none. We aim to provide an appropriate, stimulating and broadly challenging education for all our pupils. We aim to encourage language, learning and the appreciation of languages and their place in our culture and heritage. Lisvernane N.S. encourages the involvement of parents through home-school contacts and through their involvement in the development and growth of the Parents' Association.
At Lisvernane N.S. we endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in their school community, to instil in the pupils respect for themselves, for other people and for property and to encourage the development of personal responsibility. We aim to prepare our pupils for their place in a modern multicultural society by actively promoting equality and by celebrating the diversity we have within our school community. We strive to promote, both individually and collectively, the professional and personal development of teachers through staff development programmes. Lisvernane NS encourages our pupils to have respect for diversity, environmental awareness and appreciation of our community.
