Bunscoil McAuley Rice was established in 2007 as a result of the amalgamation of the two local primary schools in Callan , Co. Kilkenny. We moved into our new school building on 28th April,2014.The official opening will take place on Friday,26th September,2014. Photographs of the new building are displayed on the 'News' page of our website.
At Bunscoil McAuley Rice, we aim to enable each child to realise his/her potential as a unique individual.We also want every student to develop socially through living and cooperating with others in a Christian environment. Our goal is to prepare every student in our school for further education and lifelong learning.Our students should leave Bunscoil McAuley Rice in Sixth Class with a high degree of self confidence and self esteem that will enable them to lead long and happy lives into the future.
Your child's happiness and self esteem is foremost in our minds at all times.When parents,students,school staff and management work together for these common goals great things can be achieved.
We look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead.
