The original school was built in 1950. It was built as a four-roomed building, three classrooms and a cookery room. Obviously this building did not suffice for very long and the first of five prefabricated classrooms were added in 1967. In 1976/77 the school was extended. Four new classrooms, a general purpose room, an office and staff room were built.
In September 2011 we moved in to our brand new school.
The school teaches the Department of Education & Skills prescribed curriculum in an innovative and creative manner. Our School Motto is "Obair agus Áthas". We have won many awards in the areas of drama, science, technology, sport and music.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
