After School / extra curricular activities

Kill O’ The Grange National School opened its doors in 1963 and is now in a beautiful new building since 2004. In this academic year 2023 / 2024, we have 214 pupils and 14 teachers. The school is managed by a Board of Management, which is comprised of the Rector, the principal, parish nominees, teacher and parent nominees. The aims of the school can be summarised as to provide a happy, intimate and caring environment of learning that teaches Christian values with high standards. It is a school that considers each child as an individual.
