Tá fáilte romhat chuig suíomh-gréasáin Bunscoil Chill Chomhghaill. You will find our school nestled between the Sugarloaf Mountain and the Irish Sea. Kilcoole Primary School was established in 2010 following the amalgamation of St. Anthony’s BNS and St. Brigid’s GNS. We are blessed with spacious grounds including a meditation garden, outdoor classroom and many zoned playing fields allowing our boys and girls the space to play safely.
At the heart of a growing rural community, our school is committed to developing each pupil to their full potential. Many extra curricular activities, once catered for outside of school time, are now offered to all pupils during the school day- these include drama, gaelic football, hurling, soccer, camogie, tin whistle, choir, dance, rugby, tennis and bodhrán.
Our goal is to educate, empower and cherish the children of our community in their most formative years. It is a challenge we relish.
You are welcome to make an appointment to visit our school- call our secretaries Rita 01 2874649 or Dee 01 2876597.

School Ethos, Vision and Mission
Kilcoole Primary School provides a primary education with a Catholic ethos for boys and girls from the parish of Kilquade.
Our vision is to develop knowledge and character in every pupil empowering them to meet, with assured confidence, the challenges of life now and in the future.
Kilcoole Primary School is committed to the aims and principles of the revised 1999 Primary Schools’ Curriculum. We celebrate the uniqueness of each child as expressed in each child’s personality, intelligence and potential for development. We aim to nurture each pupil in all dimensions of their life - spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.
We strive to cherish and challenge our students in a safe, secure and attractive learning environment.
As a Christian community we aim to be a warm and welcoming place respectful and accommodating of diversity in race, culture, religion, gender and ability. We aim to promote equality and support pupils with special educational needs.
We are an integral part of the parish of Kilquade and in partnership with parents and the Church we aim to nurture the Catholic faith through religious education, preparation for the sacraments and through our school ethos.
We are a learning community promoting, modelling and valuing life long learning.
Parents are their children’s primary educators and we strive to empower and utilise parents to be actively involved in their child’s education and the life of our school.
We value our relationship with our local community and actively promote our pupils’ and their families’ involvement in their community.
We strive to provide a nurturing, positive, holistic learning experience for every pupil and commit our resources to challenging and empowering each other.
