Since its foundation in prefabricated buildings beside our parish church, the school has developed into a modern and progressive centre of education for the Templeogue community. The school has grown beyond the footprint of its original building. In 2006, 2008 and more recently in 2019, the school has expanded its classrooms and support rooms to accommodate a population of 32 full time teachers, 11 Special Needs Assistants, secretary and caretaker.
St. Pius has a rich history of participation and success in a wide variety of sports. Whilst there is a ‘leaning’ towards GAA sports, the boys also take part in swimming, soccer, tennis, golf and athletics. As recently as 2019, the school were winners of the Cumann na mBunscoil Corn na nGealtrach Cup in gaelic football.
Always ahead of the curve, St. Pius X BNS has had a dedicated PE teacher since 1990. The current teacher, Ms. Goddard has continued to set the standard for physical education teaching across all 20 classes in our school. Her work has been assisted over the years by huge numbers of staff members who give freely of their time to coach and train pupils outside of the regular school day.
