Welcome to Crehana National School
Crehana, Carrick Beg, Carrick on Suir, Co. Waterford
Crehana National School is a Catholic, primary school which strives to provide a well-ordered, caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are identified and addressed.
While Crehana N.S. is a school with a Catholic ethos, it also has due recognition for all other religions.
We aim to nourish the children’s social and educational and physical development. From Junior infants coming into the school first learning to socialize with the other children to fifth and sixth class students, we aim to prepare the children for life outside of our classrooms. We strive to create an attitude of respect between pupils and teachers and among the pupils themselves.
