The Presentation nuns first came to Terenure in 1866. They opened the school in September of that year in temporary classrooms. The proper building was completed in 1889 and is still in use today.
Ms. McHugh’s Senior Infants drew some pictures of the original school building
Ms. Carney’s 3rd class also drew our building
Presentation Primary School will be celebrating 150 years of education this academic year.
Current Presentation Primary School pupils and teachers will initially celebrate during the school day on the 29th September 2016, the date the Presentation Nuns first welcomed pupils in 1866. Former pupils, current and former families and past teachers and friends will all be invited to celebrate with us at a later date. The committee would like to invite you to celebrate 150 years of education with us. More details about the celebrations will be sent to you and will be posted on our school website once they are finalised by the sesquicentennial (150 year!) committee.
We need your involvement and help!
We need you to spread the news about the celebrations!
We need stories and photos about life at Presentation Convent/ Primary School over the years!
We would like to display a Photo Wall of old photos over the coming months. Are you a past pupil yourself or do you know of anyone who is, and who might be willing to share their photos or memoirs with us? We would love our current pupils to learn about the history of our school over the years. Would you know of anyone who might be willing to talk to some of our pupils about their time in Presentation? Would you or any of your relatives have kept any artefacts from schooldays here? If you are artistic, would you be willing to share your talent by helping us put together an artistic display?
If you feel you can help us in any way, please contact a committee member via the school office 086 8678093. Many thanks.
Our last Assembly of the year was presented by the 5th class girls. They sang some lovely songs and reminded us of the highlights of the school year. What a busy,action packed and enjoyable year we’ve had ! Ms. Hume presented Full Attendance awards. Congratulations to all the recipients.
We also said a fond farewell to Garda Tom. He has been a community Garda in Terenure for many years and is a frequent visitor to our school.Ms. Hume presented him with a photo of all the pupils and a Presentation Primary teddy bear !
The 3rd classes went on their tour to Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park on June 22nd. The girls had a great day out. The weather was kind to us and the girls enjoyed a fun filled day with lots of activities. We learned a lot about the bog and we enjoyed a road train ride. We also saw lots of animals and we had a great time in the play area.
The Senior Infants had a great day!
They ran so fast in all their races and cheered on their team mates too.
They were exhausted!
Well done, Senior Infants!
