We're delighted to announce that we've been sanctioned a 4th classroom teacher for 2022/2023 academic year and going forward.  At present, Junior Infants and Senior Infants are in one room. 1st and 2nd are in another,  3rd Class & 4th are together, leaving 5th and 6th Class togther in the senior room. We also have a full time Special Education Teacher on site.  Our new school building was built in 2004. 


At St. Michael's NS we foster an atmosphere of friendliness and kindness where every child can feel safe, happy and cared for. We aim to cater for all our children's needs and encourage each child to reach their own individual and unique potential.  


We have five Green Flags proudly blowing at the front of our school and we have been successful in renewing our Active School Flag, a number of times. We enter teams into various quizzes and compete in writing, debating and art competitions.  We have won many competitions at all levels.  We partake in swimming lessons from first to sixth class in Monaghan Leisure Centre and our school has been represented and has won in various swimming competitions and Galas.  We have achieved successes in county athletics, county GAA and county soccer competitions, winning county titles in the girls' soccer competitions, county titles in the boys and girls GAA Cumann na mBunscol finals. We are the current winners of the Small School Girls Athletic team AND  the county winners of the Girls Cross Country AND we're also the county winners of the Roinn 4 Cumann na mBunscol GAA girls teams. 

We enjoy lessons and coaching from a range of outside experts in dance, soccer, volleyball, tennis, rugby and GAA. Indeed, we have welcomed GAA stars like Conor Mc Manus, Neil Mc Adam, and our very own past pupil and All Star nominee Niall Kearns in recent years. 


We have a musical every Christmas to show off our budding actors, actresses and musicians. We try our best to offer the most fun and interactive learning experiences for our children. We foster strong links with parents and with all groups in the local and wider communities.
