WELCOME TO PRESENTATION PRIMARY BANDON

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much

-Helen Keller.

 

Hello and welcome to a new school year here at Presentation Primary School, Bandon. Thank you for taking the time to visit us. Please relax and peruse our amazing school at your leisure and enjoy all that our great school has to offer.

Our school has been educating the children of Bandon since 1876 and today nearly 150 years later we continue this tradition with pride and dedication. It is my pleasure and honour to have become Principal of this school where I have been a staff member for the last 22 years. I have great appreciation and affection for this school and have thoroughly enjoyed watching it develop over the years. I look forward to leading and guiding this school into the future and to continue the incredible work that has always been the foundation stone of Presentation Primary.

We are ideally situated on the Dunmanway Road overlooking the beautiful historic town of Bandon. We are blessed with some great amenities such as our All -Weather Nano Nagle Sports Complex officially opened in 2021 and the beautiful convent garden which the Presentation Sisters with permission love to see us use. We have a large indoor hall for drama and PE and large bright classrooms that are spacious and inviting.

At Presentation Primary each pupil is seen as a unique, talented and gifted person.  The dedicated staff in our school strive to nurture and develop the uniqueness in each child in a caring and helpful way. We believe in a holistic education and aim to provide a warm and caring environment where pupils can achieve their full potential academically, spiritually, physically, socially, morally and emotionally.  As a team we work closely together and like to encompass Nano Nagle’s motto “Not Words but Deeds” through the respect and care shown to all our pupils and staff. All staff members go beyond their duty to encourage and ensure that each pupil reaches their potential in a safe and happy environment. The most important thing for me as principal is to ensure the happiness and wellbeing of each student. We are always very grateful for the goodwill, support and assistance that we receive from you the parents and the wider community which when combined with the dedication of the staff and the willingness of the children, ensures that we have a truly unique school. 

I would now like to wish all our pupils and families a happy, healthy and productive school year. I would especially like to welcome all our new students and wish them many happy years in our school.

Kindest Regards

Jill Kelly
