Our School

Coolbock N.S. is a 27 pupil 2 teacher school set in rural Co. Sligo. The school is situated near the village of Riverstown, on the eastern slope of Coolbock Hill. Riverstown is situated 12 miles south east of Sligo. The Coolbock area is known for its natural beauty and the school has spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

The school was recently renovated and our modern facilities include two classrooms and a support room, playground, basketball court, football pitch, school garden and play area. Our school is equipped with a range of modern resources including interactive whiteboards in each classroom and a suite of computer netbooks. The school has a catholic ethos, but we welcome pupils from all or no religious background. We provide a wide variety of experiences for our pupils and have a range of modern facilities in a rural school community environment. Our school staff provide a positive school climate which is enhanced by our very supportive board of management and parents’ association.
