In Templebreedy National School, we provide a broad Primary Education, recognising that education is a life long experience and recognising that education is based on the principal of enabling the child to reach his/her full potential and to take his/her place in society, and contribute to the good of society.

Computers and iPads are used as an integrated part of classroom work. Frequent visits to theatre and places of interest are arranged. Visits from people who have something to contribute to the enhancement of the Education programme in the school, are also frequent.
Home links are considered to be enormously important. We welcome and encourage involvement of our parent body in education.
