School History

Catholic primary education in the town of Moville was previously catered for by St. Brigid's Girls National School and St. Joseph's Boys National School.

In 1996 these two schools were amalgamated to form Scoil Eoghain.  Scoil Eoghain was accommodated on two separate sites until 2008 when temporary, same site accommodation was provided on the site of the "old boy's school".  This allowed for the building of the new school where St. Brigids had previously stood.  The school community moved into the new building in November 2009.

Patronage

Scoil Eoghain is under the Patronage of the Catholic Bishop of Derry.  We identify as a Catholic school and strive to ensure a Catholic ethos permeates all aspects of school life.  As a formal agent of education within the Catholic Community, the school models and transmits a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The school aims at promoting the full and harmonious development of all aspects of the pupil, including his / her relationsip with God, with other people and with the environment.

Vision / Mission Statement

Scoil Eoghain Moville promotes the holistic development of the child including academic, physical, moral, emotional, spiritual, aesthetic, cultual, social and personal development and thereby enabling the child to see himself / herself as a unique individual who presents himself / herself as an active and responsible citizen in society.

Scoil Eoghain - (present day)

Scoil Eoghain currently has an enrolment in excess of 225 pupils and a staff of17 including teachers, SNAs and ancillary staff.  Our state of the art eight classroom purpose built school stands proudly on Bath Terrace Lane.  As well as modern classrooms, our school contains a very generously sized multi-purpose school hall, a fully equipped I.T. suite, a state of the art schol library and resource rooms.  Our school grounds contain a number of tarmacadam football pitches and an enclosed basketball court.

Classes in Scoil Eoghain

Having eight purpose built classrooms ensure that each class level can receive classroom instruction aimed exclusively at their class level all the time.  Our junior cycle are catered for in our downstairs classrooms and third to sixth classes are taught upstairs.

Sport

Here at Scoil Eoghain, sport is very important to us.  We aim to participate in as wide a variety of sports as possible.  We believe that there are many positives to sport for young people.  It encourages fitness, healthy living, team participation, social skills and also of course sporting skills.  Scoil Eoghain is involved in all local leagues and competitions in both Gaelic and Soccer whilst striving to increase the divertsity of sports locally.

Home / School Communication

It is the policy and practice of Scoil Eoghain to maintain regular and consistent communication between home and school.  This is achieved using a number of methods.  "Scéalta" our monthly newsletter, keeps all the school community well informed.  Parents are invited to sign up to our text system to recieve updates and reminders regarding school events.  Our school website www.scoileoghain.ie documents all major events and has lots of information about our school.

A parent / teacher meeting will be held once a year.  Parents are also free to make an appointment with a teacher, at a mutually convenient time, outside of the parent / teacher meeting.

Our home school co-ordinator Miss McMahon is also available to talk to parents.  Having a permanent HSCL within the school also provides for smooth transition onto second level.

Parents Association

Scoil Eoghain has a very effective and active Parents Associaion.  It is with the assistance of the good work and diligent fundraising of the Parents Association that the school continues to be at the forefront of well resourced education.
