The school was originally built in 1962–63 as a two teacher school.This was extended in 1974 to accommodate pupils coming to Templederry N.S. because of the closures of Gortnagoona N.S., Latteragh N.S. and Curreeney N.S. While the school serves the immediate area of Templederry – many of our children travel to school by bus & car from quite a large catchment area.The school grounds are very spacious and are tastefully landscaped. We have three “playing field” areas at the rear of the school, and a fabulous brand new 2000 metres squared astro turf. Every effort is made to keep the school litter free whereby children are encouraged to recycle.The school has won the Tidy Schools Competition organised by Tipperary N.R. County Council.
In 2010, Templederry N.S. formally joined the Green School’s programme and was awarded the first Green Flag for the ‘Litter and Waste’ theme in 2012. Following this the school has been awarded flags for working on the themes of ‘Energy’, ‘Water’ and ‘Travel’. We are currently working on the topic of Biodiversity. The school also won a prize in the Tidy Schools Competition 2016.
All the “partners in education” work well together to make the learning environment for our children attractive, stimulating and safe. We hope you enjoy viewing our progress on our website and twitter account as we endeavour to bring you the most up-to-date news from our school
