‘ I love this school because of the friendly atmosphere.’
Ms. Ormond and Ms. O’Donoghue are amazing and so is the staff. Just everyone is so nice. It’s brilliant to wake up in the morning and know you’re coming here.

I am now a student at The University of Limerick and am well prepared for my academic life thanks to the guidance, pastoral care and nurturing I received at OLOL.

Throughout the six years our daughter attended the school we have always felt that because it is a small school the teachers really got to know each pupil individually. Attending the parent teacher meetings it was obvious every year from our perspective a parents that the teachers really knew our daughter well. They knew her personality, they were interested and they cares about the students.
Our lady of Lourdes is where I first started to play basketball. Starting out as a first year I played mini-leagues at lunchtime, coached by our 6th years who gave up some of their lunchtime to coach us. During my six years in school our team played in many finals and during my 5th year we won the South-East Championship. In 2016 I was selected for the U20 Irish Basketball Team and competed in the European Championships in Israel. Playing basketball at school has given me many opportunities outside of the sport itself and has taught me leadership, communication and problem-solving skills. I have made great friends and I now study at University of Limerick and have captained the Fresher Team to win the Intervarsity final. None of these opportunities would ever have happened without the wonderful opportunities both academically and sporting that were offered at Our Lady of Lourdes. Little did I know what lay ahead as I signed up for basketball in 1st year?

I like this school for many reasons. I like the educational opportunities and standards. The teachers are of a high standard and are passionate about being the best teachers they can be. Students are well behaved and do not disrupt lessons.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a school which has great facilities such as the lab, music room and an amazing art room.
Having spent six years in Our Lady of Lourdes I can safely say that they were the happiest days of my life. I was nurtured and encouraged from the day I entered the school until the day I left. Immediately a rapport is established with teachers and I knew that I could go to them with any problem I had no matter how big or small. My time there was truly unforgettable and I am proud to say I was a pupil of Our Lady of Lourdes for six wonderful years.

The teachers are pleasant and patient. The school feels safe and warm.
I like the way you can toast your sandwich in the ref.

I like this school because everyone knows everyone. There is such a lovely inviting atmosphere. It is a school where anyone can make friends because our school has students who have so many different interests and hobbies. Every day is a joy attending this school. And I love the friends I have made.
