The school facilities currently consist of:
  • 15 Spacious Classrooms
  • 3 Learning Support Rooms
  • 1 Resource room
  • General Purpose Hall
  • General Purpose Room 
  • Separate Play Area for Junior Infants
  • School Library
  • Children's orchard and garden
School Garden
In an effort to give back to the school, the Parents Association built and maintain a garden at the school in which the children can plant flowers and see them grow.  The teachers take their classes outdoors (weather permitting) and read to the children at the garden.  The garden also won a Tidy Towns award!

Play areas
Junior infants have a separate play area to first class and senior infants. Both play areas are very spacious and the yards have been lined with various games that the children can play during break time.
