Scoil Pól was founded by the Sisters of Charity of St. Paul, the Apostle. St. Paul is best known through his letters to the early Christian churches which we are familiar with through their regular use in our liturgies today. He is renowned as a preacher and teacher and is therefore a very fitting patron for our Scoil Pól.
His feast day on 25th January is always marked in a special way in Scoil Pól and generations of pupils have looked forward to their “feast day treat”. The school moto “Omnibus Omnia” (All things to all people) is taken from St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and is the inscription on the school crest. The life of St. Paul is beautifully depicted in a batik hanging in the main entrance of Scoil Pól. It was presented by the staff to mark the opening of the new Scoil Pól in 1987 and is a much admired feature of the school.
