Welcome to Nagle – Rice Primary School

Nagle-Rice Primary School is a Catholic, co-educational school situated in the town of Milltown. It operates under the patronage of  the Bishop of Kerry. The mission statement of the school is to commit to developing the full potential of each individual pupil in a happy, secure environment and seeks to be a warm and welcoming place, respectful and accommodating of diversity in race, culture, religion, gender and ability.

We value highly our relationship with parents and the local community and seek to continue to work in partnership with parents/guardians to ensure the best interest of each child is provided for, as both parents and the wider school community play a meaningful role in the future development of our school plan.
