Welcome to St. Kevin’s Boys’ School website

Our school is situated in the heart of Kilnamanagh, Tallaght Dublin 24, and has served the community since 1976. We currently have 328 boys attending and approximately 38 members of staff.  In our school we value positive relationships, learning is prioritised and we all have the common aim of doing our very best each day.

Thank you for visiting our website – if you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you come down to the school today, you’re in for a big surprise!  …..Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic

Junior & Senior Infants enjoying their annual Teddy Bears Picnic today.  Mr Lynch’s climbing skills came in handy too as a fewbears managed to make their way onto the school roof!

What’s happening around the corridors of St. Kevin’s Boys’ School?

So much has happened around our school over the last 3 years.  These changes aren’t obvious to parents or the community, unless you have an opportunity to tour the school.   We thought it might be nice to reflect on the work done over the last 3 years.  The upgrades and new facilities have been such a wonderful addition.

We plan to hold a formal open evening for parents / past students in June.  This will give the school community an opportunity to tour the school, enjoy student displays and of course to meet with Mr Murray before his retirement.

Details about the evening will be sent closer to the time, but we expect it to be mid-June.

Now that we have finished upgrading the doors throughout the school, we have started to paint our classes and corridors.  The ‘Orange Corridor’ upstairs is now fully completed.  Next, we move on to the ‘Green Corridor’

The Toast of St. Kevin’s!

Our Principal, Mr Murray enjoying  some tea and toast (with jam!) this morning with Ms. Kelleher’s Junior Infant boys.

What a great way to start a Friday morning in school!

Topics of conversation ranged from raspberry -V- strawberry jam?, favourite TV shows to what Principals do when they retire!!


What a difference 365 days make ….

1 year ago this week (3rd May 2022), with the assistance of Tallaght Community Council we added to our love of tree planting on the school grounds by adding a mini-forest to the side of the school, along Treepark Road.

Since then, we’ve added a tunnel of willow trees and have watched what was  previously an uninteresting part of the path become a beautiful, green space.

We’ve really noticed an increase in butterflies, bees, worms, creepy crawlies and the sight & sound of birds.

These images were taken exactly 1 year apart. I think you’ll agree it’s been quite the transformation!


Rang Ray & Rang Rita

We were fortunate enough to open our first A.S.D classroom in November 2019.  We then opened our second last September.

Rang Ray & Rang Rita, both have independent sensory rooms.  There is an enclosed soft surface play area directly off Rang Ray. This play area has a motorised canopy, meaning outside play is not reliant on the weather!

There are interactive screens in each room and most importantly, there are 12 very happy students! Thanks to the boys is Ms. Maher’s 6th class and the amazing work organising a 2023 School Calendar, proceeds raised through the sale went towards specialist equipment for children with autism and other special needs.  Our movement corridor  now has a climbing wall, and an ‘autism steam roller’

We will hold the official opening of the two ASD classrooms in June. Details will follow nearer the time.

Introduction of the Revised Language Curriculum

To complete training on the Introduction of the Revised Language Curriculum, the staff of the school is required to complete two further half day modules before the end of June.

To minimise the disruption, we plan to combine the two half days into a single closure on Monday, 22nd of May 2023. All staff will be in school on this day, but school is closed to the students. This will affect both the Boys’ School and St Kevin’s G.N.S.

On your bike! 

Now that the weather has improved and the mornings and afternoons are brighter, we would encourage as many children as possible to cycle or walk to school.  For those using bikes, scooters etc, there is plenty of safe appointed areas to store your bike, both on the senior and junior yard.  All bikes/scooters should have a lock.

We celebrated World Book Day on

A welcoming sign!

The new signage at the front of the school is now fully installed and looking great!   The art work design was undertaken by Ciara Connick, who worked as a Special Needs Assistant in our school last year, before moving to pastures new in the sunny South East.  The images on the sign encapsulate all the elements of student life and learning in our school.

The entrance was then finished off with the addition of a tiled wall along the assembly hall window.  Check out our before and after photos below.St. Kevins Boys School exterior
