Sports

Children engage in a wide variety of activities including basketball, soccer, swimming, Gaelic football, Irish dancing, cycling, athletics and gymnastics.

Music

We are delighted to provide weekly music sessions with James Donohue for children from 1st class up. This means that each child is given the opportunity to learn to play an instrument.

Green Schools

It is the policy of Kilcleagh NS to foster in the children love, respect and appreciation of all living things in their environment and to become active agents in the conservation of environment for future generations.

About Our School

Our school is a Catholic school under the patronage of the Bishop of Ardagh & Clonmacnoise and as such must reflect a strongly Christian ethos, transmitting a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God. Our prime purpose is to direct the many energies of the school into a holistic vision of what it means to be human, created by God in his own image and likeness.

We are a community

We see our school, not as an institution but as a close knit community, where pupils, teachers, parents, management board and ancillary staff work together in an atmosphere of harmony, friendship and mutual respect. We recognise the parent as the child’s primary and principal educator and the teacher’s role as equal and complimentary.
