Welcome to the St. Conleth’s College Junior School!
A Message from our Junior School Principal, Tony Kilcommons
It is with great pleasure that I write to you in my capacity as Junior School Principal. I would like to thank CEO Ann Sheppard and Headmaster Mr. Kevin D. Kelleher for allowing me the opportunity to lead the school in this exciting time as we transition into a co-educational Junior School.
My aim is to continue the excellent academic standards set by my predecessors. My vision for St. Conleth’s is that of a modern, innovative school while still retaining the warmth and family atmosphere that it is renowned for. A place where the boys and girls can realise their maximum potential in all areas of development and “be the best they can be.”
St. Conleth’s Preparatory and Junior School welcomes boys and girls from ages 4-12 (Junior Infants to Sixth Class). With an average class size below twenty, personal attention to each pupil is assured and a more inclusive and holistic approach to education is emphasised.The recently developed Preparatory School has been a welcome addition to St. Conleth’s. The youngest Conlethians benefit from sharing in all the social, educational and recreational aspects of the larger school, from computers to gymnasium to cafeteria, yet they also have the sense of belonging and security that having their own purpose built facility provides.
Each pupil follows the standard primary school curriculum as set by the Department of Education and Science, preparing him for entrance into secondary school. This core curriculum is augmented by tuition in subjects such as French, Music, Speech and Drama, Art and Information Technology. Religious Education follows the prescribed Catholic programme, and the boys are prepared for First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
