Fáilte go dtí Scoil Naomh Colmcille. Whatever your interest in our school we are delighted that you are taking the time to learn a little bit about us.
Our school was founded at Westport Quay and has served the local community for over one hundred and twenty years.
We are a Catholic co-educational school, catering for students from Junior Infants through to 6th class. While we are a Catholic school under the patronage of the Catholic Archbishop of Tuam, we have pupils of many faiths other than Catholicism, and pupils of no faith.
Today, we have a staff of sixteen which includes teachers, special needs assistants, secretary and caretaker.
While our school has had considerable growth over the last twenty years, we continually strive to maintain the ethos of a smaller country school.
We endeavour to provide a friendly and caring school environment where both children and parents feel a strong sense of community spirit. We greatly value the involvement of parents and wider community and this is evident in the many community initiatives that take place during the school year.
If you are a current parent, we hope that this website provides you with up-to-date information about our school. If you are a prospective parent, we hope that you are given a glimpse of life in our school.
