Welcome to Kill o' the Grange!
Kill o’ the Grange National School opened its doors in 1963 and is now in a beautiful new building since 2004. Our co-educational school is managed by a Board of Management, which is comprised of the Kill o' the Grange Parish Rector, the principal, parish nominees alongside both teacher and parent nominees. The objective of the School is to promote a happy, intimate and caring environment inclusive to all. A place of learning that teaches Christian values and instills strong values and self worth so our pupils are given the opportunity to meet their potential. It is a school that recognises every child as an individual.
A very warm welcome to all our students and staff to what we hope will be another super year at Kill o'the Grange. It is lovely hearing our school classrooms filled once again with children's voices and happiness.
The Extra curricular activities have all resumed with the return of Art, Dance and Drama, Hockey, junior and senior football, swimming, tennis, badminton along with the new addition of sports club every Tuesday and Thursday.
Both Hockey and Football will take part in leagues so team captains will be in touch when the time arises.

Aladdin Connect is the main platform of communication used by the school. It is a multifunctional app; Once you download it, you can report your child’s absences, view reports and test results, provide permission for tours, order tracksuits, crests / ties and pay bills. It is an incredibly useful tool and easy to use as you can send information directly to the class teacher and the class SNA and report any lateness pertaining to appointments and more. From a school’s perspective, it was introduced as a more efficient and effective method of communication between the school, families and our classes. If any parent or guardian is yet to access Aladdin or is unsure of it's workings please don't hesitate to contact the admin office.
