Tallaght Community National School

Tallaght CNS is a state, co-educational, multi-denominational school under the patronage of Dublin and Dun Laoighaire Education and Training Board.

Tallaght CNS is underpinned by the core values of Excellence in Education, Care, Equality, Community and Respect.

Tallaght CNS caters for children from Junior Infants to 6th Class. Children are nutured in a safe, caring enviornment which allows them to fulfill their potential.

Our school began it’s life as St. Maelruain’s Church of Ireland School was initially founded in 1979 and pupils were taught during the early years in the Parish Hall adjacent to St. Maelruain’s Church. The current school building was built in 1982 in Jobstown, Tallaght and was opened in October of that year.

We are proud of our small, growing community which is the only school in Tallaght which offers education to primary school children in a multi-denominational setting.

We currently have space to enroll children at every class level in our school.

Our Diverse School

Our students have been busy creating a ‘Multicultural’ display to celebrate the diverse cultures we have in our school community. As part of the new school ethos, our students have been learning quite a lot about respecting each other’s differences. We strive as a school to bring even more awareness to the diversity and connection we all share in Tallaght CNS. Our students understand and appreciate various cultures, as well as their own, highlighting both differences and common interests.
