We are the biggest and oldest primary school in Ardee with an enrolment of approximately 260 pupils.We have a beautiful newly refurbished and extended school building containing 10 mainstream classrooms, 5 special education teacher rooms, a new Junior Library and a huge new gymnasium. We have state of the art technology with each classroom having a new Activpanel, a new PC, laptops, iPads, access to a large amount of educational software and access to centralised photocopying and printing services via a new school server.

We also have two excellent yards; one secure and enclosed yard for Junior and senior infants with new playground equipment; and a large senior yard containing soccer and basketball facilities for 1st to 6th classes. All of our pupils have access to an adjacent large playing field with two sets of gaelic football posts. All in all we have the largest playing area for our pupils of any school in the north-east. Take our inside virtual tour and/or outside virtual tour to see for yourself! Our new building and facilities provide us with a 21st Century centre for teaching and learning.
