Fáilte mór chuig Kilnamanagh CNS
Tá fáilte romhat! Kilnamanagh CNS opened in August 2019 under the patronage of the Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB) as a Community National School. It is the very first Community National School in County Wexford.
Our school is located about half way along the main Gorey to Wexford road, the R741. Take the turn for Rahenduff which is located just past the exit for Kilmuckridge on the opposite side of the road. Our eircode is Y25 HT63.
We started in August 2019 and were fortunate to be granted a building that was only 20 years old. Our school building is behind an old school building visible from the main road. It is nestled in the countryside with beautiful gardens, allowing plenty of space for children to play and assuring sightings of lots of different animals e.g. a wide variety of birds, rabbits or woodland creatures. We have a wonderful sensory garden and the children have had and will have opportunities to plant their own vegetables and flowers.
Kilnamanagh CNS is at the heart of the community and it is guided by core values such as equality, respect, care and community. Our school is a very happy place in which children can grow in confidence and ability, flourishing as learners and individual people. Strong partnerships with parent and the wider community are valued.
KilnamanaghCNS is committed to being an environmentally friendly and sustainable school.
We will enhance the progress being made towards this, by further reducing the school’s ecological footprint, embedding sustainable practises in our everyday lives. We are committed to ensuring that children understand their roles and responsibilities in looking after the school environment and beyond, and how they can lead more sustainable lifestyles.
