Goleen N.S is a Catholic co-educational primary school under the patronage of the Bishop of Cork and Ross. 
High expectations and positive experiences are placed at the core of our vision for the school. We aim to create a friendly and supportive atmosphere where all children and staff are respected and valued.
We endeavour to offer a welcoming, happy, caring and challenging educational environment in which every child is encouraged to develop to his/her full capacity.
While we are a school with a Catholic ethos, we welcome and respect children of all faiths and none. We celebrate and cherish diversity in our school.
As principal of Goleen N.S. I am very grateful for the co-operation and support of parents, pupils, staff, parish clergy, Board of Management, Parents’ Association, and the wider Goleen Community. Together, we endeavour to provide our pupils with a broad educational experience.

School Motto:
“Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí.”
