Principal’s Message

Fáilte romhaibh uilig. Welcome (or welcome back!) to our new CBS Primary School website. We are a thriving school located in the centre of Dundalk catering for boys and girls from Junior Infants to 6th class. The Christian Brothers established their first school in Dundalk in 1868 and the present building was opened in 1940.

We serve the community of the town of Dundalk and its surrounding areas. Our school has a Cathloic ethos which promotes an open, welcoming environment. We provide a holistic education in a positive atmosphere where each child’s uniqueness and dignity are respected and nurtured.

We have a long tradition of sports – Gaelic games, rugby, soccer, swimming, athletics, basketball – for all boys and girls. In keeping with our philosophy of developing the whole child and offering a wide range of activities we also have a strong cultural tradition where choir, band, book club, drama, quizzes, Rainbows and a vibrant Student Council are important areas for all the children of the school.

Tá traidisiún fhada na Gaeilge sa scoil ó am na mBráithre Críostaí.

We encourage parental involvement in the life of our school and are fortunate to have a flourishing Parents’ Committee.

Healthy Eating is both emphasised and practised in our school.
Learning Support in English and Maths is available to children experiencing difficulties.
Language support is also available to those children whose first language is not English.

We are winners of the Green Flag Award on numerous occasions and promote a love and respect for the environment among all children.

A word of thanks for the Peter Bell One Web Design Studio and IPS Creative Team who have worked on this relaunched website.

Go raibh mile maith agaibh as an obair uilig
