St. Mary’s & St. Gerard’s National School

St. Mary’s & St. Gerard’s National School is a Catholic, Co-educational Primary School situated in the picturesque and scenic village of Enniskerry. It provides a child-centred education as laid down in the Primary School Curriculum of the Department of Education.

The school first opened its doors in 1894 and was originally known as Enniskerry II National School. In 1940, three new classrooms were constructed on the present site. The “old school” as it is now known is currently used as a G.P. room.

In 1978, eight new classrooms were constructed and the original shelter was converted into a remedial room. On completion of the extra classrooms, the partitions between the classrooms in the old school were removed and a stage was erected to facilitate the Christmas Concert, the first of which was held in 1978.
