This year Inch National School celebrates a century of educating the generations of local children who have passed through its doors. Although education in Inch dates back to 1858, the existing school building was opened in 1910.
During these one hundred years the school has undergone many changes, from the opening of a new extension in 2000 to the installation of modern interactive boards in each classroom through to the sizeable growth in pupil numbers resulting in Inch School moving from a two teacher school to a five teacher school. Throughout all the changes the school has been very fortunate to experience overwhelming support from the different Boards of Management, parents and the wider community.
As the dawn arrives on another century of education, the staff, parents and Board of Management are looking to the future needs of the pupils as they face a world where rapid change is the status quo, while at the same time recognising and cherishing the fact that each child is unique and special in his or her own way.
