St John the Apostle National School

We extend a warm welcome to you and your child to Knocknacarra NS. It is our aim that your child will be extremely happy in our school and will achieve his/her full potential by being happy, sociable and respectful in our school’s pleasant and stimulating learning environment. There is a strong sense of community and a high level of co-operation between staff, pupils, parents and visitors.

Our school opened for the very first time on August 30th 2007. Our school’s patron, Bishop Martin Drennan and Chairman, Fr. Tadhg Quinn, performed the Opening Ceremony with a blessing of our school community. At the time we were located in a premises in Fearnóg on the Clybaun Road. We moved into our fabulous new school school building in August 2009. You will see our spacious classrooms and PE Hall in photos of School Events.

Our classes have increased to Fifth Class in September 2012 and next year we will include all classes up to Sixth Class, as the school is fully established.

Knocknacarra National School has a Catholic Ethos as outlined in the Catholic School’s Schedule displayed in the school foyer. A spirit of prayer promotes an atmosphere of kindness, appreciation and forgiveness. As outlined in our Enrolment Form, we follow the Alive-O programme (Veritas) for Religious Education.
