We welcome you to our school website. Our school is situated in the village of Caherconlish, Co. Limerick. We cater for children aged from four years to twelve years.

Here at Caherconlish N.S., we work tirelessly to provide a happy, friendly, caring environment, where children feel secure and valued. The children who attend our school are encouraged to develop self-discipline and mutual respect for each other and for all adults, in an atmosphere that promotes learning and positivity, enabling children to reach their full potential.

We promote the development of cognitive skills such as evaluating, analysing and criticising in our daily activities. Our aspiration is to equip children to deal confidently with knowledge presented to them in a world in which they are exposed to a multitude of media on a daily basis. We constantly seek out interesting and stimulating initiatives for the children, in particular activities which provide active learning opportunities. We always encourage the children to try their best and not to be afraid of making mistakes.

We respect and acknowledge the very important role that our parents play in the education of their children, their involvement is consistently sought throughout the school as we recognise that it is this collaborative partnership between home and school which enhances the children’s education, welfare and social awareness.

We are grateful for the support of our parents and the wider parish community.
