A Community National School is just as it says. Founded in local communities, these schools are child-centred, inclusive, multi-belief, State supported schools which strive to provide a high quality primary education for every child in line with the Primary School Curriculum and guidelines laid down by the Department of Education and Skills.
The first Community National Schools, Scoil Ghráinne and Scoil Choilm, were opened in 2008 in Phibblestown and Porterstown in Co. Dublin. Since then several other Community National Schools have opened their doors; our own school in 2010, as well as Ard Rí CNS in Navan, Piper’s Hill CNS in Naas, Scoil Niamh in Citywest and Lucan CNS in Lucan.
