North Dublin Muslim National School
The North Dublin Muslim School was opened in September 2001 under the patronage of the Islamic Foundation of Ireland. The school opened with three classes and three teachers and has now grown to twelve mainstream classes and one ASD class. There are 320 pupils in the school at present who are taught by twenty-four teachers, including four teachers of the Qur'an, Deen and Arabic.
The North Dublin Muslim National School is a co-educational primary school which is funded and regulated by the Department of Education and Skills and evaluated by their Inspectorate. We cater for the physical, academic, social and spiritual needs of the children whilst nurturing an Islamic way of being.
The North Dublin Muslim National School is a caring place where each member of our community is welcomed, respected and valued. We aspire to provide a well-ordered, happy and secure learning atmosphere where each child is encouraged to reach their full potential. We do this by providing a holistic, child centred education.
We promote the learning of languages and an awareness of their place in our culture and heritage. We develop among our pupils an appreciation of creation in all its forms, as inclusivity is at the heart of our teaching.
We endeavour to enhance the self-esteem of everyone in the school community, to imbue in the pupils respect for themselves, other people and property and to encourage the development of personal responsibility.
We encourage the children to grow as individuals in a school environment in which honesty, respect and acceptance are core values. We foster an understanding and appreciation of both diversity and individuality and aim to play an active role in the local and Islamic community.
We work in partnership with parents to prepare our pupils for their place in a modern society by nurturing a sense of empathy and the ability to interact socially with confidence.
We hope that by teaching these skills we will empower the pupils to become good citizens.
The North Dublin Muslim National School follows the 1999 Primary Curriculum and new Primary Language Curriculum. In addition to this curriculum, the school provides a religious education programme. This programme covers a range of religious, social and moral issues from an Islamic perspective.
