Fáilte go Scoil Náisiúnta Loch gCoiteáin Cill Áirne

Welcome to the website of Loughquittane N.S. Killarney, Co. Kerry. We are a co-educational school catering for children from Junior Infants through to 6th class. Situated in beautiful Muckross, a mere 5 minute drive from Killarney, our school has been educating children for over 140 years since its foundation in 1870.

Our school community is a vibrant partnership between pupils, parents, teachers and staff. Ongoing contact is maintained through parent teacher meetings and the child’s journal. The school principal, Ms. Alison Coffey is delighted to welcome prospective parents and will give them a tour of the school.

The staff of Loughquittane N.S. work as a highly committed team, ensuring a happy, productive learning environment for all our children.

Children with special needs or those who are experiencing learning difficulties receive extra support from our learning support teacher and our resource teacher.
Events include School Sports, Soccer Blitz, Music & baking etc. Recently we have been awarded our 4th Green Flag by an Taisce in recognition of our environmental awareness Green School Project as well as achieving the status of a Health Promoting School which was granted to us by the Department of Health in recognition of our efforts to promote healthy eating and hygiene standards amongst the children.

Loughquittane N.S. is committed to the total development of each child in our care, taking a holistic view of the child’s education through Academia, Sport and the Arts, ensuring each child who leaves our care does so as a well rounded individual ready for the challenges the next step in their education will present. Our aim is to encourage respect for self and for others in the context of learning.

Facilities within the school include ample access to computers for each child, a resource room for indoor activities such as drama and music etc as well as a large outdoor play area including a basketball court and an all weather astro turf football field.

We strive to ensure that the time your child spends with us is a happy one and our aim is to have each child smiling both at the beginning and the end of each school day.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to call and say hello!!!

1st & 2nd Class really enjoyed showing off their favourite books this week in celebration of World Book Day. We are lucky to have such wonderful readers in our room.

We also went on a lovely walk in the woods where we enjoyed the fine weather and took notice of the first signs of Spring. It's great to be back again with all our friends!
