Vision Statment

The Vision Statement of the Convent Primary School Kanturk promotes the holistic development of the child including academic, physical, moral, spiritual, cultural , emotional and personal development while also promoting the uniqueness of each child.



In the early part of the nineteenth century Kanturk was dotted with ‘pay-schools’ but the introduction of the National School System in 1831 heralded the quick demise of these ‘hedge schools’. Only three schools were recorded for Kanturk in 1848. The largest section of the population was attending Kanturk Male and Female schools.
