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

Fruit Cocktail

The boys in Senior Infants and First Class took part in a Fruit Tasting Morning today which was organised by Ms. Robinson. There was a huge variety of fruit on offer which can be seen here in the photographs – melon, mango, bananas, passion fruit, kiwi and pineapple to name but a few. We were all pleasantly surprised by all of the boys’ willingness to taste fruits they’d never tried before!
A huge thank you to Lidl in Nutgrove and Tesco Rathfarnham who kindly donated some of the fruit to the school. A special thanks also to Helen, Ms McWeeney and Ms Beatty who also helped with setting up the room and preparing all of the fruit.

Below is a picture of our very flexible Oscar who won a medal at the weekend for his gymnastics display. Also on the rostrum is Luke who proudly displays the medal he was awarded for flexing his fingers playingStudy in C on the piano on Sunday. Meanwhile David brought in another type of flexible friend - worms for the compost heap to chew through lots of organic material.

Junior Green team had their second match on Tuesday in Kiltipper against Scoil Maelruain, at which we had four seasons in one day with hailstones, sunshine, wind and rain. We added another victory to our win against Mary's Rathfarnham last week. Great stuff.
