Characteristic spirit, mission or vision
This school serves its community well. The aims of the school confirm that the school strives to promote an inclusive Christian ethos and develop each child’s full potential.
Teachers and Parents
Teachers endeavour to instil among pupils the virtues of tolerance, patience, politeness, self-control, justice and fair-play. This characteristic spirit is exemplified in the happy, secure, respectful and friendly atmosphere, in the manner in which pupils are empowered to make responsible choices and in the consideration given to parents’ views and opinions.
The pupils’ uniform crest bearing the message Ag oscailt ár gcroí, ag leathnú ár n-aigne provides further reinforcement of the shared commitment of the board of management (BOM), pupils, parents, principal and staff towards realising these aims. The valuable contribution of the ancillary staff, in particular, the secretary and caretaker is acknowledged.

Our Vision is that of a caring, loving Catholic School where all children, whatever their ability, race or creed are cherished for their uniqueness.
Our school seeks to give equal opportunity to all children to reach their full potential – academically, spiritually, physically, socially and emotionally.
We endeavour to achieve this goal in a climate of positive co-operation, supported by the entire school community of pupils, teachers, support staff, parents/ guardians, Board of Management and Parish.
The staff of Dromindoora National School seeks actively, through work and action, to create a happy climate of physical, emotional, social and intellectual security for students, staff and parents/ guardians. In this way teaching and learning can take place within the context of mutual valuing and respecting relationships.
The teachers at Dromindoora National School see education not just as providing students with knowledge and skills but also as providing for the all-round development of the individual.
We believe each child has a unique and special contribution to make.
We believe every child matters.
We strive to develop independence in our students together with the ability to self-evaluate, self-motivate and internalize discipline. We want out students to be happy with themselves, others and their world.
We want out pupils to enjoy school.
We endeavour to achieve quality in all that we do.
These aspirations can only be achieved through the so-operation of students, teachers, support staff, parents/ guardians, Board of Management and Parish.
We believe it takes a community to raise a child.
We seek to promote an ethos, which is:
Welcoming, tolerant, open, listening, safe, caring, inclusive and fun.
We are proactive in our efforts to achieve this environment through our language and our actions. The teachers see parents/ guardians as partners in this process.
