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.
As you browse through the various sections of this website I hope you enjoy learning more about our school and how we aim to develop and prepare each child within our educational environment.
My thanks go to all who contributed to the formation of this website which is a tremendous addition to our school. I would encourage the school community, parents & children to become regular users of our website and to avail of the important features within it.

Children, staff and parents alike enjoyed our Annual Sports Day. Thanks to Karol McQuade for organising our teams and races. Well done to all the children and to Mr White who won the Teacher's Race by default as no other teachers made it to the starting post 😊
Congratulations to Conor, Miss Toner's pupil of the week. Unfortunately Mrs Nugent and Mr White could not give out their award as last weeks winners did not bring it back in 🙁
Along with the other children in the school and the children from Tiny Tots Mrs Nugent's class released their butterflies. As one child commented 'Our class is famous.' All five caterpillars made the successful transformation into painted lady butterflies. We had one who was reluctant to take flight, but thankfully Caroline from Tiny Tots was able to suggest we could let it go into their bug hotel. We look forward to exploring the area to …
Our P1-P3 children went to Newry Fun House for their end of year trip. Everyone had a terrific time, plenty of ground was covered during our time there, so there might be some tired legs tonight!! Well done to the winners of the treasure hunt, basketball shoot and other planned activities. Fast moving children resulted in very few photographs, but is a sign of a great day out.
We were delighted to welcome Alex, Ella, Eoin, Ellie Mae, Liam, Meghan, Rohan, Rosa and Shea for their induction morning. The current Primary 1 and 2 children were fantastic in making the children feel welcome. While the children enjoyed the activities in the classroom Mr White spoke to the parents, with refreshments once more provided by the Friends of St Michael's. School Trends were onsite to assist with trying on and ordering uniforms for the …
This week the award winners are Annmarie, Feidhlam and Oisin and Molly Mae. This is the first time ever a joint award has been presented, but it was so well deserved!!
Elaine from Bryson House shared an informative and interactive session with P3-P6. She talked about the importance of being energy efficient and gave us ideas of how this can be achieved.
The good weather has proved very popular with the girls who used outdoor chalk to create pictures and designs. They are fantastic!
Shea came back to help Mrs Nugent's class bring to life the stories they had created in their small groups. Every one adopted a role and acted and spoke accordingly. Some groups even managed to add in some props to support their scene. Shea was very impressed with the feedback given to each group in terms of what the other children enjoyed or felt improvements could be made. Well done everyone!

Both members have given their time for over thirty years and a lot of effort put in to ensure that the pupils in Clady are getting the best education possible. At the meeting Mr Joe …
