Welcome to the website of Balscadden National School. We believe that every child should experience success in school every day. From success comes confidence and positive self esteem. Our school aims to be a centre of excellence in the areas of literacy and numeracy. At the same time we work hard to ensure that our pupils experience a well rounded education that nourishes the multiple intelligences of every child. We educate children to have a healthy and active lifestyle that respects the environment around them. Our school is an inclusive school where we focus on the abilities of the child and work to support their potential. A village school should be a school for every child in the village. Balscadden NS provides a safe and secure environment in a picturesque country setting where every child can feel at home. We operate in the heart of a vibrant local community and in ongoing partnership with our parents. We teach children respect as we prepare them for a changing world. Our school is a happy place, a place where children form friendships and experience success. Success for all. Go n-eirí linn!
