Message from the Principal
As Principal of St. Pius X BNS, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school’s website which provides a snapshot of the myriad of different activities that take place in our school every day. It gives an insight into the wonderful opportunities that are afforded to the children who attend St Pius X BNS.
Our school is a vertical one (Junior Infants to 6th Class) providing education to over 530 boys. Our staff is 42 strong - talented, enthusiastic and professional people who place the interests of our pupils at the centre of everything they do. In addition to our teachers, Special Needs Assistants, secretary and caretaker, we are supported by an amazing Parents' Association and the wider Templeogue parish community. The school is governed by a dedicated group of volunteers in the form of our Board of Management. The Board, under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin, is headed by Mr. Ronan McMahon who has worked on behalf of the school for the last 20 years.
We are all extremely proud of our pupils and are constantly amazed by their abilities and talents. We will endeavour to continue to nurture and develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We look forward to what the future will bring for our community and are sure St. Pius X BNS will continue to be a caring, welcoming and supportive school for many years to come.
Le gach dea ghuí,
Lorcan Coyle

Ms. O’Connor’s 5th class, helped by Ms. Kennedy, are delighted to have completed FRIENDS for Life. This programme, in conjunction with our national SPHE curriculum, is designed to help children cope with feelings of fear, worry and sadness by building emotional resilience and self-esteem. The boys have enjoyed learning new relaxation, problem solving and coping skills and sharing their ‘happy thoughts’ each week

Two Hat-Tricks

Our senior hurlers won the Annual South Dublin Pre-Season Tournament for the third year in a row yesterday. In a nail-biting final in blustery conditions, we defeated near neighbours St. Joseph’s Terenure 4:04 to 4:02. A special mention to our hat-trick hero Luke McNiff who was one of the outstanding players on the day.

The soccer team had their first cup game on Friday in Whelan Park where they comprehensively beat Donabate-Portrane ETNS 6 - 0 . The boys showed excellent teamwork, skills and determination in achieving this win. Hugh O Neill scored a hat-trick, Joe Plunkett bagged a brace with Joshua Walker sealing the victory with the final goal. 16 boys played a part in the win so it was a terrific team performance with all subs playing a vital role. We look forward to the next game already!

So, Guess What We're Celebrating . . . .
