Welcome to St.Patrick's, Ballynahinch

school1St. Patrick’s is a Catholic Maintained Primary School situated just off the Main Street in Ballynahinch. Our existing school was built in 1958 to replace an old school (1864) on the site. In l981 a major extension was added to give a spacious, modern and well-equipped school.In 2000 a state of the art Nursery Unit known as Magheradroll Nursery Unit was completed to accommodate 52 part time nursery aged children from both communities.

The present enrolment is 240 which includes 52 part time nursery children and there are eleven full time teaching staff. Our facilities include  a modern computer suite where children from P1 to P7 have regular timetabled access to our Dell computers in class units. Recently  inter-active whiteboards were installed in all mainstream classrooms.

We, in St. Patrick’s Primary School, aim to create a school in which each child will feel valued, will come to realise his/her full potential and grow in the Christian faith. We aim to create an atmosphere of tolerance and respect for all, where everyone, irrespective of ability, will realise that he/she has a valuable contribution to make.
