Welcome to St. Joseph’s Primary School Dungarvan

St. Joseph’s Primary School is a Catholic school under the patronage of the Bishop of Waterford and Lismore. The school caters for boys from 2nd to 6th classes. It is located on Mitchell Street in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, a bustling seaside town at the mouth of the River Colligan set against the backdrop of the Comeragh Mountains.

The school has 143 boys on the roll for the school year 2023-2024.We are a diverse school with pupils from many ethnic backgrounds. Our motto is “Ní neart go cur le chéile”, which means there is no strength without unity. As a catholic school our ethos is one of inclusion and we welcome those of other faiths and none.


Principal Maeve Saunderson leads a team of thirteen teachers, five special needs assistants and ancillary staff. The school is also served by a Home School Community Liaison Co-ordinator. There is a very active Parents’ Council in the school and there are links to the local community through the Board of Management. Facilities in the school include seven mainstream classrooms, seven shared learning resource teaching rooms, a library in each classroom, and an assembly hall which is also used for indoor PE activities and performances. Each classroom is equipped with a SMART Board with interactive display and a teaching computer.  All our computers are networked and protected with an NCTE firewall for Internet access. The school also has two sets of  iPads for class use, group and individual work.
