It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website which I hope you will find interesting and informative. Coláiste Cois Siúire opened in September 1993, replacing the old Vocational School, to meet the second level educational needs for the South Kilkenny areas of Mooncoin, Kilmacow, Mullinavat, Piltown and Templeorum.
The school, through a comprehensive education programme, aims to provide educational opportunities to meet the needs of each individual student. It is a non-selective school, enrolling pupils of the full ability range from all sections of the social strata. It is co-educational with a policy of eliminating gender bias, encouraging girls to study traditional boy’s subjects and vice versa. It provides religious education for all denominations.
It is a social and educational hub providing comprehensive second level schooling, continuing education for adults, and is also a major local community resource centre.
The aim of the school is to promote the total development of each individual student. With its enlightened, dedicated and highly trained staff the school continues to respond to the changing educational climate while considering the particular needs of the local community.
Towards achieving its aim, the school operates a strict code of discipline and prides itself on its record of instilling good manners and acceptable behaviour into its students. The school co-operates closely with parents in achieving this goal.
The school is a non-selective, non-denominational, co-educational school, which aims to promote the total development of each individual student.
Coláiste Cois Siúire provides a broad comprehensive education to meet the needs of its students.
