Welcome from the Principal's Desk

Welcome to Kilcoe National School’s website!


I am extremely proud to be the Principal of Kilcoe N.S.  It is such a warm, welcoming and friendly school. We have an amazing group of students and we are extremely proud of their outstanding achievements. We encourage every child to take pride in their work and value their achievements. Our aim is to create a happy and secure atmosphere where your child will always be encouraged to do their personal best. At Kilcoe N.S. we believe in creating a happy environment where each child’s unique character and abilities are recognised, developed and celebrated. We aim to include all children, extending the able and providing support for those with a range of learning needs.


We are lucky to have supportive parents who are engaged in their children’s learning. We value the partnership between home and school, and we are hopeful that this website will help its readers learn more about the school.  We encourage parents to be involved in the school and their children’s education and hope that parents will continue to be a major part of our school community.  To keep up to date on the latest events at the school, please review our website regularly and keep up to date with the calendar and newsletter.


We are fortunate to have such a close community around us in Kilcoe and are proud of our links with the local and wider community. We regularly have members of the community in to educate and speak to the children. Grandparents and relations are welcome visitors and give the children great support throughout the year.





I thank the teachers who put so much work and effort into all that they do. Their commitment and dedication to teaching and learning is evident in every aspect of the work of this school. It is because of the teamwork of all the staff; teaching, non-teaching and the Board of Management that we have the school that we have.  


I hope you enjoy exploring our website. We hope that through this site you can keep up-to-date with what is happening in our school and celebrate the work that our children are doing in every aspect of school life.
