On behalf of the Board of Management, the Parents Association and all the staff members of Little Flower NS, Ballytarsna, I would like to welcome you to our website! It is a privilege to serve as principal of Little Flower NS. Our school has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful team. Our school is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the children with a quality education.
“Our school is a caring and proud learning community committed to the pursuit of excellence. Students, teachers and parents are encouraged and supported to be the best that they can be in a school environment that respects diversity and fosters justice and equality for all. “ (from our Mission Statement)
We strive to ensure that our Mission Statement is lived out every day in the classrooms and corridors of our school. The development and welfare of each pupil is central to all that we do. Our sincere hope is that all students are guided and supported to enable them to reach their full potential academically, personally and socially. We embrace this task with optimism and confidence with the assistance and collaboration of parents who play a key role in the life of our school. We face the future together with an unwavering belief in the exceptional capabilities of the children in our care – ní neart go cur le chéile – there is no strength without unity.
I hope this website reflects some of the energy, commitment, hard work and fun, experienced every day in our school. Enjoy browsing our site!
If you would like to visit us at any time, please contact the school office, we would be delighted to welcome you to our school.

Is mise,
