Education at St.Joseph's Primary School, Macroom is concerned with the all-round total development of your child, which includes social, academic, moral, spiritual, physical, aesthetic and emotional elements.
We seek to integrate Christian principles of faith and action with good academic programmes to satisfy the challenging demands of the modern world and to provide for individual differences and needs whilst encouraging personal responsibility and cultivating self-directed, life long learning.’
We facilitate the process of life long learning by enabling students and their families to learn how to learn in a wide variety of settings and by embracing many forms of teaching and learning. We strive to instill a love of learning that will express itself in an enquiring mind and a heightened curiosity through all stages of formal education and beyond.
