Paul Cronin, Principal at Ballyhea NS

Ballyhea National School is a vibrant hub of learning at the heart of a rural community in North Cork. Our dedicated staff aim to provide a stimulating, exciting environment where everyone feels valued and safe and pupils can achieve their full potential by providing a well-structured and engaging curriculum, and by promoting good behaviour throughout our school, we aim to instil in all children a lifelong love of learning.

Paul Cronin, Principal at Ballyhea NS

Whatever the needs of your child we aim to ensure they thrive in Ballyhea by feeling safe, having fun and enjoying success. We want our pupils’ time in Ballyhea National School to be memorable, build on what they know and help them become lifelong learners.

We highly value the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. The partnership between school staff, parents, and other stakeholders is an essential one. Children are at the heart of all we do and their social and emotional well-being, as well as their academic achievements, are very important to us all.

Our Catholic ethos celebrates the mutual respect and care we have for each other yet upholds an expectation of excellence in both teaching and learning.
Should you wish to find out more about the school, please feel free to make an appointment and I will be delighted to show you around.

Yours sincerely,
Paul Cronin.
