Mc Dermott Street, (Convent Hill), St. Dymphna’s School, Ballina, Co Mayo
We are a Special school in Ballina who cater for pupils with a Mild General Learning Need in North County Mayo and West County Sligo.
In 2009 we moved into our new school building which was constructed on the site of our previous school.
We presently have two Primary classes who follow a Primary school curriculum and three Post Primary classes who follow a Post Primary programme.
At St. Dymphna’s we strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in a supportive and caring environment taking into consideration the needs of each pupil.
The school has a well-equipped Home Economics room and a Post Primary specialist subject teacher two days a week.
We also have a well-equipped kitchen and a chef to provide hot meals for pupils each day at break and lunch times.
Each class has sufficient digital devices for one for each pupil and the use of digital technology in the school is encouraged. Each class has an IWB and we have a mobile smartboard for use throughout the school.
