Tinahely NS serves a rural community that is mixed in socio-economic class. It is a Roman Catholic school, and this ethos is central to the life of the school.
Tinahely NS aims to teach the skills that are needed to develop each child’s intellect. Its aims are also to imbue the children with appropriate spiritual, moral and cultural values; and to develop their awareness and understanding of their environment at a local, national, and global level. The school seeks to promote the physical and emotional wellbeing of all pupils, and to develop their expressive, artistic, and creative abilities to each pupil’s full capacity.
The teachers will work in a spirit of partnership with the parents and the clergy for the good of the children, and they aim to make the school a happy and effective place for learning.
