About: Video


Brunner Primary

St. Paul’s is a Co-Ed Catholic Primary School under the Trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST). We are very proud of the Catholic ethos given to us by the Christian Brothers. 

Our School was first opened in 1869, it consisted of four large rooms and two smaller ones. At that time 300 barefoot pupils attended, we have come a long way! Today Brunner is a medium sized urban school, based on North Brunswick Street, with 160 pupils on the roll. The original school building still stands although today our school is a mixture of old and new architecture. The new building joins up with the old at the entrance, a meeting of the traditional and modern.

We are delighted to welcome you to our website, where you can learn about school life at Brunner. Please take your time to view our student work; we are particularly pleased to present some of the unique videos our students have produced in their classrooms.

Should you wish to contact the school, you will find all the details you need on our contact page and to find where we are please see our location map.

Thank you for visiting,

Miss Ruth Coghlan,
School Principal.
