Welcome from the Principal
It is a privilege to welcome you to the website of St. John the Baptist Junior Boys’ School, better known to our neighbours as Belgrove Junior Boys’.
We are a Catholic school under the patronage of His Grace Archbishop Dermot Farrell. We cater for boys from Junior Infants to Second Class. We endeavour to create a pleasant, secure and happy environment and provide a broad, balanced educational experience which promotes a positive attitude towards learning, enabling our boys to recognise their talents and achieve their potential.
At St. John the Baptist Junior Boys’ School we aim to encourage and foster strong and positive home-school links. We are extremely grateful for the support and good will from the parents and families of our boys, our Parents’ Association, the Board of Management and the wider school community who collectively make our school the warm and welcoming school that we enjoy.
We have a complement of 38 dedicated staff which include mainstream teachers, SET teachers, SNAs, secretaries and cleaners, who all work together to make our boys’ experiences engaging, meaningful and fun!
