Pupil Council

Students have a voice and a contribution to make to our school. It is important that they be given the opportunity to express their views on issues of concern to them in the school. It is equally important that they are listened to and encouraged to take an active part in promoting the aims and objectives of the school.  


Promoting long-term, whole-school action for the environment Green-Schools is a student-led programme with involvement from the wider community. We are currently working on our Flag for Global Citizenship – Marine Environment. It is a maintenance theme that will enable us to discover how our work on the Green-Schools programme has positively influenced environments worldwide while focusing our work on our oceans and seas. 


STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths. Our mission is to inspire children to love STEAM subjects! We pride ourselves in hosting numerous fun events during Maths, Science & Engineer Weeks.


Our in-school library creates an environment for our pupils where reading is fun. All classes have the opportunity to choose books to read for enjoyment. We also attend many events held in the local Tullamore library, from lego to reading with visiting authors.

Gardening and Growing

Our school gardens and growing pods are a wonderful way to use the schoolyard as a classroom, reconnect students with the natural world and the true source of their food, and teach them valuable gardening and agriculture concepts and skills that integrate with several subjects, such as math, science, art, health and physical education, and social studies, as well as several educational goals, including personal and social responsibility. 

Music Generation

Music Generation is a national partnership programme whose mission is to create inspiring experiences for children and young people through music

School Shows

Every Christmas all classes put on magnificent shows for their families. We are very lucky to have an array of talents in our school.


The playing and development of Gaelic games in and through our school has been a traditional and vital custom over many, many years. It is founded on the strong and vibrant relationship between the Tullamore GAA Club and our school at local level, and is dependent on the good will and effort of Primary School Teachers and the GDO. We are blessed to have Offaly footballer and Tullamore captain Declan Hogan on our staff. 


We enjoy working in partnership with Offaly Athletics and Offaly Sports Partnership. Pupils also get the opportunity to participate in the annual Offaly Cross Country competition and the Colin Dunne Athletics Memorial Cup in the Harriers.


Pupils play soccer every day on yard. The highlight of the year is our participation in the National 5 a side competition in Leah Victoria Park. The emphasis of the FAI Schools Primary 5s is placed on fun, inclusivity and fostering a passion for physical activity. The in-house tournament will provide all school children to take part this year prior to teachers selecting their squad(s) to represent their school. 


Pupils play basketball in the Town Park arena every Summer and particpate in the Offaly Primary Schools Basketball competition.


We have star bakers around the school. Amity enjoys baking weekly whilst Ewelina can often be found helping other classes bake the most magnificent treats.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Our school is committed to encouraging and stimulating the Irish language daily. To further promote the Irish language, a great effort is made during Seachtain na Gaeilge which takes place during the first or second week of March every second year.  

Friendship Week

We pride ourselves on building and maintaining positive relationships in school throughout the year. With Friendship Week we aim to get to know each other, creating a positive school climate and embedding anti-bullying strategies early in the year (all while having lots of fun!). We learn about relating to others in positive ways through discussion, stories, music, art and games.  

After-school Homework Club

This club is supported by the Schools Completion Programme. It runs every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-4 pm.


We enjoy 6 weeks of swimming lessons in Aura every year. The aquatics curriculum recognises that there is more to swimming than learning to swim strokes and competing in swimming competitions. The emphasis is on acquiring a set of fundamental skills, attitudes and understanding before becoming competent in traditional strokes. 


VEX IQ encourages creativity through its easy-to-use construction system and approachable technology.  VEX IQ is a snap-together robotics system designed from the ground up to provide novice users the chance to find success quickly, while still being able to constantly challenge more advanced users.  

Heritage in Schools

The Heritage in Schools Scheme provides a panel of Heritage Specialists who visit us (in-person or virtually) to help children and their teachers learn about and appreciate their local heritage. The Scheme supports the stated aims and objectives of the Social, Scientific and Environmental Education (SESE) curriculum and provides an additional educational tool and resource for teachers.
