Your Child’s Learning

At Mary, Mother of Hope Junior National School we strive to create a centre of educational excellence for the children in our school. We aim to ensure that each child is supported at their particular stage in their learning. To achieve this, we use a wide and varied range of methodologies and approaches. Our classrooms are wonderfully resourced with materials that support hands on, child led learning. To support the active, discovery and child centred learning that takes place in our school we use several published schemes that complement the teaching and learning in our classes.

  • Jolly Phonics
  • Handwriting without Tears


  • Busy at Maths
  • Brain Teasers (1st and 2nd Classes)
