Welcome to our School
Killoughteen N.S. is a rural, mixed, catholic school just outside Newcastle West town. Our 236 pupils range in age from 4 to 13 years. The atmosphere in our school is a very happy one enhanced by a supportive parent body. We opened our first Special Class (ASD) and a pre-school on the school premises called Killoughteen Kids in September 2018. In September 2022 we opened our second Special Class.
We begun 'Split the Pot' here in Killoughteen NS to raise funds to upgrade and install the best play and recreational areas possible for our pupils. The draw is on weekly on Thursdays and the winners are posted here on the website and on our school Facebook page....read more
