Our School

St. Patrick’s Boys National School, Portarlington

St. Patrick’s BNS is a Primary school for boys in Portarlington. There are over 320 children attending the school. We have children from all over the world attending the school and encourage the integration of all nationalities and cultures.

Throughout the school we promote positive behaviour within classrooms and also encourage children to partake in all the extra-curricular activities on offer. Teachers run several after school activities including Football, Handball, Soccer, Badminton, Tag Rugby, Golf and a lunch time Games Club. We also have a fantastic School Band.

We take part in the FAI schools soccer and Cumman na mBunscol competitions each year. We’ve experienced success in both in recent times. Our Tag Rugby team are All Ireland Champions.

We were awarded our first ever Green Flag, for recycling, in May 2010 and our second flag, for energy, in September 2012. We are now working towards our 3rd Green Flag for Water.
