Principals Welcome


I am delighted to welcome you to view our school website.  Here we aim to provide you with a snapshot of school life in Kilshanny.  We cover all areas of the prescribed curriculum as well as engaging with many other extra curricular activities.  At our school we have a wealth of resources, including Maths equipment, I.T. equipment, PE equipment, Science equipment and outside play areas.

The children at our school are extraordinarily well behaved, well mannered and a privilege to work with.

Here in Kilshanny N.S. we take a holistic view of learning and of the learner.  We focus on the need for pupils to develop a broad range of skills, competences and values that enable personal well-being, active citizenship and lifelong learning.  It is our aim to build the pupils’ self confidence so that they are unafraid to take the risk of attempting new challenges.  At our school all children will receive the academic social and emotional skills to enable them to realize their full potential.

  • We depend on each other
  • Nurture and look out for one another
  • Realize our actions and words affect others

Many thanks

John Mahon

From past & present parents


Proud to Call Kilshanny our School...

Six of our children received their primary education at Kilshanny School. Small classes and high levels of attention were paramount in our decision. In Kilshanny none of them were ever found wanting for equal measures of care, empathy and left it equipped with a high level of knowledge in all subjects. Not only did our children receive an excellent education there, but also acquired a strong sense of core values to develop their sense of integrity, which has helped them become the focused, compassionate adults that they are today. They are proud to call Kilshanny their school and so are we

Every Child is Valued

The school community is the right size for the individual needs of each child to be nurtured and encouraged

Great Teacher Support

The teachers are supportive to the pupils in the best possible way

The Smiles Say it All

Everything they need

Small is Beautiful
