St. Colman’s Bann is a Catholic Maintained Primary School for girls and boys aged 4 -11 years, which was opened in May 1984 to replace the original building adjacent to the school.
The original building has now been modernised to house Laurencetown, Lenaderg and Tullylish Pre-school Play-group and Community Centre, from where many of our beginning pupils transfer, having established strong bonds with their peers.
We have enjoyed a steadily rising enrolment over recent years, increasing from 81 pupils in 2006-07 to 126 in 2016/17.
Our infant department is separated from the senior classes by a large sports/assembly hall (also used as a dining room).
The senior part of the building contains an open planned library/resource area and staff/medical inspection room. P.1-2 have 2 well contained and safe outside play areas adjacent to their classrooms, while the older P.3-7 children have a large playground area at the other side of the building.
