Holy Child Primary School, Derry


Holy Child is a friendly, stimulating place to learn. We take pride in being a school which not only caters for the educational needs of the children entrusted to our care, but also strives to develop in them a truly Christian outlook on life. We are proud to serve the parish of St. Mary’s and indeed, the whole community of Creggan.

As we are a small school our children have a strong sense of community and we ensure that every child feels happy, safe and nurtured.

We want our children to have a variety of experiences during their time with us, to be willing to try new things without fear of failure and to become independent and confident young people.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming your child into our school and hope that your partnership with the school is a long and happy one.

Mrs Cullen
