Welcome to our website
St Michael’s Primary School is a Catholic Controlled Maintained School in the Kilcluney Parish. Christian values are intrinsic to the education we provide. St Michael’s is a friendly school committed to the traditional values of hard work, respect for others, good manners and self-discipline. It is our aim to ensure that all children are provided with the essential values, skills, knowledge and abilities that will develop them academically, physically, socially and morally. At St Michael’s we promote our culture through language, games, dance, music and stories. We enjoy a close relationship with parents and wider community and are very thankful for the support they provide.
