About Us

Multi-Denominational Ethos of Educate Together Schools

Educate Together schools are legally obliged to cherish and respect the religious, cultural and social identity of every child and family that attends its schools. The Board of Management of Castaheany Educate Together National School cannot promote or favour any particular religious persuasion.

The school organizes a comprehensive programme of education about the major religions and faith systems in the world but does not teach any particular faith or creed. It teaches children core values of appreciation and respect of social, cultural and other human difference; social responsibility and rights and other features necessary to inform a child's developing mind to live in our rapidly changing society.

Castaheany Educate Together National School does not prepare children of any denomination for sacraments or religious events, but facilitates any group of parents who wish to organize religious instruction for their children outside school hours.
