The school of many welcomes!

 

 

Our school is situated in the historic centre of Cork City under the Shandon Bells and a stone’s throw from the Cork Butter Market.

North Pres. has a long and proud history of education on the northside of Cork city. Our aim is to combine the best traditions of the Presentation ethos with modern teaching aids and ideas so that our pupils can look forward to the future with confidence and skills.

We have an Early Start Pre-School catering for girls and boys aged 3 to 4 years.


  • Our school is a Catholic school founded by the Presentation Order. We also welcome and cater for children from all other religions.
  • North Pres. School is a diverse community with pupils from more than 40  Ethnicities. We encourage respect and inclusivity.
  • We see parents as the primary educators and value their contribution to our school through our active Parents’ Association and our Home-School-Community Links Programme.

Health Promoting School Team News!

In May of last year, the North Pres Health Promoting School Team sent out questionnaires to pupils, parents and staff, which many of you very kindly filled out. We compiled the results and put some plans in place based on the findings. There were lots of wonderful suggestions and ideas. The most common suggestions were:

  • To further promote positive mental health and wellbeing
  • To increase opportunities for physical activity
  • To provide more nutritional information
  • To promote good hygiene
  • To further enhance the positive school atmosphere through our social interactions with each other

Here is a brief summary of the plans and initiatives we put in place as a result of your valued feedback:

  • Monthly School Assembly – to celebrate effort, successes and promote class unity and school spirit
  • Buddy Week – to promote new friendships and a positive school community
  • Monthly Kindness Award
  • Well Done Wall
  • Inspirational Quote of the Month
  • Mindfulness Monday – opportunity to relax our minds for a few minutes in our busy week
  • Wake Up and Shake Up Club – Before school skipping club
  • Brunch Club – to promote class spirit and unity
  • Screen Free time

Thank you for your support in helping us to make North Presentation a Health Promoting School!
