Welcome to Walterstown National School Website
Last Thursday Walterstown NS was alive with colour as the girls and boys arrived to school in their Hallowe’en costumes! Superheros, witches, wizards, zombies, fairies and hulks were just some of the characters who we welcomed in the door!
The boys & girls in the Aqua Class have been learning & exploring lots of new things.
We are practicing our reading every day. To celebrate autumn we made colourful leaf rubbings, friendly squirrels & leafy hedgehogs.
Cobh Pirates RFC are on the hunt for new players from age 10 to 18.5 for their girls rugby teams. They have a fantastic team of coaches and are all very enthusiastic about developing the girls squads over the next couple of years.
We had the pleasure of welcoming Olympic Silver Medallist and local star Sonia O’Sullivan to Walterstown National School today. Sonia came with Trevor Cummins and did a short athletics workshop with every class in the school.
Congratulations to Rang 3 who made their First Holy Communion last Saturday, October 9th, in St. Colman’s Cathedral. The boys and girls enjoyed a lovely ceremony by Fr. Tom, and great celebrations were had by all. Comhghairdeas libh go léir!
Zac in Orange Class planted a native Irish wild cherry tree to celebrate National Tree Day on 7th October. The theme was ‘Trees are Good Neighbours’. We will plant it in the school garden next spring.

Welcome to our website. It is a great honour and privilege for me to be the Principal of this school and continue the fantastic work done by my predecessors. It is my vision to continue the tradition of the school in providing a holistic, inclusive education within a happy caring environment for all pupils and staff. We offer a range of activities from sports to IT, music to drama and much more to our students. As a school, we welcome and encourage parental and community involvement. I have an open door policy and I urge all parents to take the opportunity to discuss any issue with me so that we can move forward together. I look forward to working with all members of the school community as we strive to provide the best education to our students.
