Templederry NS   is   set    in   a   picturesque   rural   area nestled between the towns of Nenagh and Thurles. Templederry National School is   a   mixed   school   with   children    ranging   in   age   from   4   years  -   13  years.  (Junior  Infants  -  6th class).   At   present   we   have   57   families   attending   our   school.   Our   enrolment   is   93   children which  comprises   46  boys and   47   girls.  There are four  mainstream  teachers in the school. It has one Special Ed. teacher  and it  is  the  base  school   for   a  second shared position.

  • Four full time teachers
  • Two  full  SNA Posts.
  • One full Special Ed. post and the base school for a second post ( shared)

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 resurfaced   basketball   court.  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.  The   children are  taught to respect school property,   shrubs,   trees   etc.  In 2011,  Templederry N.S.  formally  entered  the  Green  School Competition  and  was  awarded  the  first  green  flag  in  2012. The second green flag was received in May 2014 and in June 2016 with great pride and pleasure, the school's third Green Flag was officially raised.  The school again, 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.
