Have you googled the schools in the area in which you are interested. If you get their email addresses, you could contact them by email but bear in mind that this is mid-term break so they won´t re-open until next week.

I would agree that your daughter should go to one of the local, non fee paying, primary schools but unfortunately I´m not familiar with any of them.

Hi Faisal,

I don´t know any schools in Sandyford. But I noted your mention of fees.

My advice is to send your duaghter to the local, public National School.

Private schools at Primary level in Dublin, tend to have a lower academic standard than the traditional National School. Their teaching of the Irish language is, in the case of the private school my children attended, particularly abysmal.

Moreover, a significant number of the staff at these schools are not properly-qualified National Teachers.

Save your money and give your little girl the best start in her new life in Dublin. Find your nearest national School. Good luck to you in the move.

I think the local school would be a good option.

Hi,
I´ll be shifting to Ireland from India shortly. I´ll be staying in and around Sandyford. I have a 5 year old daughter. I´ll be thankful if someone can provide some suggestion/advise about where I can get admission for her & how. What will be the fees & any other information.

Thanks & Regards,
Faisal

Any developments on this? Perhaps with the mid-term break, you might find it difficult to make contact with the schools until Monday.

There is a lovely school near Sandyford called St. Raphaela´s National School. It´s an all girls school. It´s not fee paying. I know of it through some friends who have their daughters there and all are very happy with it.
