Welcome to Caherea National School.
Our school was founded in 1961 and has always had a very close connection with the local community. It is a two-class school with a supportive atmosphere that encourages everyone to work and develop together. We have a separate room for special education teaching and a yard that includes a basketball court, grass area and a school garden. Most recently we have added a 5-Star Bug Hotel to attract some of our smaller friends.
At present, there are 46 pupils in the school with 17 in the junior room and 29 in the senior room. We have two mainstream class teachers, two special education teachers and three special needs assistants.
