At Bishop Walsh School we endeavor to foster the total development of the child in an environment rooted in Christian values and principles.
We are responsible for creating a warm, supportive atmosphere where children are respected and encouraged to develop to their full potential.
We strive to nourish self-discipline within each child, and the ability to work and learn cooperatively with others.
