Marian Primary School, the primary section of St. Mary’s School for Deaf Girls, is situated in the grounds of Dominican Convent in Cabra, Dublin 7. This modern, purpose-built school was officially opened in 1988.
The children access the standard Department of Education curriculum that is available in mainstream schools but will also benefit from having a communicating and teaching environment that is specially geared toward educating Deaf and Hard of Hearing children.
Our small class size allows us to offer intensive, individual attention in a relaxed, friendly and caring environment, which is warm and inclusive. As students are among their peers they feel part of a community. Students interact with pupils who have the same needs as themselves and make life-long friends while at the school.
We welcome both day and residential students. Transport to and from school is provided for students. A dedicated team of teachers, assistants, residential care workers and others, with specialist knowledge and expertise is available to our students.
The Primary Section represents a very stimulating learning environment for the pupils. School corridors and classrooms are tastefully decorated with pupils’ work samples in a wide range of curriculum areas.
