Kildysart National School is located on the Ennis Road and has been situated on its current site since 1899. The school was completely renovated in 1957 and in 1967 became the central school in the parish with the closure of Gortglas and Effernan national schools. With an active and supportive Board of Management the school has undergone a number of building projects over the past few years, the most recent making the school wheelchair accessible. With a growing enrolment, the school promotes a positive and supportive learning environment ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential within an enjoyable atmosphere. We maintain a spirit of mutual respect, appreciating individuality and difference, respecting the rights, uniqueness and value of each pupil and member of staff. It is important to us that high standards and Christian values permeate all aspects of school life. Parents and Guardians play an important role in our school community working quietly behind the scenes. Together with the Parents Association, we greatly appreciate their help, support and cooperation with fundraising and other school activities. Indeed we are very fortunate to belong to such a vibrant community, receiving help and support from many voluntary organisations and clubs within the parish. A sincere thank you to one and all
