Primary School

St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys Primary accommodates students from Junior Infants up to 6th Class. The school follows the National Curriculum as it is provided in mainstream schools, supplemented by focused Speech and Language Therapy together with specific Language Development sessions to meet the specific needs of Deaf students.

The early years of students’ lives are fundamental to their development, primarily in the areas of language and communication development. This development together with the long-term influence of a positive and encouraging environment for Deaf students can reap rewards, particularly in relation to education and employment prospects later in life. Through the efforts of skilled staff and appropriate resources, St. Joseph’s seeks to provide an environment that fully supports each student’s needs, and promotes the maximum potential of each child, both on an educational, social and personal level.

The headings in this section outline the subjects taught and the facilities and sports available to the students.
