Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.


Welcome to St. Colman’s N.S., Cloyne. St. Colman’s is a mixed, mainstream primary school with a Catholic Ethos. We cater for children in all classes from Junior Infants to 6th Class. I, as Principal feel privileged to work in a progressive, inclusive school with a caring attitude where all children are cherished and respected. The staff are dedicated, friendly and committed to helping each and every child. We encourage the holistic development of all children. We aim to stimulate each child whatever their ability to achieve his/her full potential and to be confident and respectful of self and others.

We promote the development of a caring, happy, welcoming and secure environment where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of all pupils are identified and addressed. We are proud of our school climate, one of trust, respect, support, welcome, understanding and acceptance where learning and teaching can be enjoyed.

We believe that self-esteem and confidence are qualities that are fundamental to the well-being of every individual, both child and adult.

The school encourages the continuous professional development of all staff. We acknowledge the importance of Parents in the education of their children. We encourage parents to be actively involved in school life.

Ní neart go cur le chéile
