Parteen National School, set in impressive green surroundings, nestles in the picturesque shadow of the local 19th century parish church, built in 1835, in the peaceful village of Parteen. It is hard to believe that this Clare oasis of tranquility is only a few minutes drive away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre of Limerick.

Parteen looks set to produce a few young scientists thanks to its success in two recent national competitions. The scientific endeavours of all classes in the school, from junior infants to sixth class, were rewarded when the department of Education awarded the school the Discover Primary Science and Maths Award of Excellence for the fifth year. Thanks to the guidance and encouragement of primary science co-ordinator Fidelma Coughlan a lot of empfasis is placed on the value of science in the school.

Xperience Engineering


Well done to Mr. Collins and third class. Their project has been shortlisted to appear at this year's Xperience Engineering final which will be held in the Helix, Dublin City University, on 7th June.

Thank you


Before Easter, the school took part in a fundraising event for the IHCPT to raise funds to send children with special needs to Lourdes on Easter Sunday for a week.  This event surpassed all expectations with an exceptional €1878.19 being raised.  6th class, under the direction of their teacher, Miss Eustace and SNA, Carmel, organised and ran the event which comprised of a colours day, cake sale and games.  It was a huge success.

Sincere thanks to each one of you for your help, support and contribution to the fundraising day.  Without your help, it would be very difficult to ensure so many children benefit from such a unique experience in Lourdes.

The pilgrimage was a huge success this year and all the guests (children who travelled) of the IHCPT had a wonderful week.

Again many thanks for your interest in and support of the fundraising event.
