The Lough

Our school is situated near the City Centre and close the Lough and UCC. Our current building was built in 1967 and we added a large modern extension in 2013. The extension is home to Junior and Senior Infants.

We have large grounds, with a beautiful school garden and field. We are also close to the green area in Deerpark and the beautiful Lough. We are walking distance to local amenities and historical sites, such as:

  • St. Finbarre’s Cathedral
  • Elizabeth Fort
  • Historic Barrack Street
  • The City Library on Grand Parade
  • The English Market
  • Ballyphehane Library
  • The Lough Church
  • UCC Campus

Within our building we are well equipped and all classrooms have interactive whiteboards and class libraries. We also have a state of the art library room with over 4,000 book.

We are lucky enough to have a Parents’ Room with a fully equipped kitchen. All classes have a chance to experience cookery classes and activities for parents are run regularly.

In 2013, we installed a Multi-Sensory Room. This room offers great therapeutic value to pupils and we recently used this room to deliver yoga classes.

Within the school we have a large gym hall with a working stage. The hall allows us ensure physical exercise all year round and our stage is used for school plays and concerts.
