St Patrick's Primary School, Rathfriland, Newry


On behalf of the staff, pupils and Governors of St Patrick's Primary School, Drumgreenagh I would like to welcome you to our school website. 

St Patrick's P.S., was established in 1998 following the amalgamation of two long-established Drumgath Parish schools - St. Colman’s Primary, Barnmeen and Lurgancahone Primary School- and since then our school has flourished and developed an excellent reputation.

We are immensely proud of our warm, loving, welcoming, inclusive, child-centred environment. We take pride in our strong links with our parents, our parish and the wider community.  As a Catholic School we seek to foster and promote Christian spirituality and maintain the highest Christian values. Working in partnership with parents/ carers, we aim to support the development of each child's personality and talents.  We aim to provide a wide range of experiences for our pupils so that they develop the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that will enable them to develop academically, physically, socially and emotionally. 

I hope you find our website interesting and informative. It provides a snapshot of life in our school, so if you require further information or you would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Nessa Magee
