We Are A Caring
We are a school who prides ourselves on having a holistic approach to creating a caring learning environment for all our students. We cater for smaller numbers so each child gets the support and attention they need.
Our enthusiastic Teachers are dedicated to providing the best classroom experience for your child. The wide range of activities we support gives every child the opportunity to discover their own strengths.
St. Augustine’s N.S. is a two teacher school in the parish of Lisdoonvarna/Kilshanny. Staff members are John Mahon (Principal) and Orla Whelan. Mrs. Nicola Hynes is the Special Needs Teacher.
Enrolment for the year 2020/2021 is 26. As well as pupils from the catchment area we also have a number of pupils from neighbouring parishes.
The school was built in 1952 and is in excellent condition. The school was extended and refurbished in 2009. Two new classrooms and a staff-room were added and existing classrooms were converted to a general purpose room and Learning Support room. A new school yard was built in 2012, and a Geodome was erected in 2013.
The school also has the services of a part-time secretary, Lourda Dunne. The school is a focal point in the parish of Kilshanny.
