St. Anne’s National School is a co-educational Catholic primary school under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. Together with the Board of Management, the parents and the parish community, we provide Religious Education for the children in accordance with the doctrines, practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. We have adopted the ‘Grow in Love’ and ‘Alive-O’ programmes, the recommended approach to Religious Education for the reception of the sacraments of Penance, Holy Communion and Confirmation.

We promote the formation of the children in the Catholic Faith in a manner that is welcoming to and inclusive of the presence of children committed to other religious traditions and those of none. Our Christian ethos also permeates the school day through our actions, attitudes and practices. We provide opportunities for prayer, the celebration of liturgy and the sacraments.

We strive to create a learning environment where every child is encouraged and enabled to develop their full and unique potential as human beings. We seek to form children who will use their gifts for the common good and are committed to work for a more just and caring society. We provide a welcoming and inclusive community that is respectful and tolerant of all religious traditions and beliefs.

In Second Class, children are prepared to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and Holy Communion. Preparation for these sacraments consists of meetings to support parents / guardians in their role of preparation and a Presentation Service, which is held in the Parish Church in the Autumn. First Reconciliation generally takes place in the Parish Church in Spring. Children receive their First Holy Communion on a Sunday in May and boys wear a Communion robe for the ceremony.

In Sixth class, the children are prepared to receive the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation. Preparation for this Sacrament consists of meetings to support parents / guardians in their role of preparation and a Presentation Service is held in the Parish Church in the Autumn. A Service of Light takes place in the Parish Church in Spring. The Confirmation Service usually takes place in March / April and all children wear a Confirmation robe for the ceremony.
