Welcome to our school website! We hope that you enjoy your visit! We want our website to give visitors a flavour of the many learning experiences the boys enjoy in school.
Dear Parents and Pupils,
The history of our school:
St Corban’s Boys National School opened its doors to students for the first time in 1954.The Christian Brothers School at the Moat and the Green School on the Kilcullen Road both closed to make way for the new, six classroom C.B.S built on a site known as Brannigan’s Field.
The school has grown rapidly in recent years and we have welcomed many families from all over Ireland and from countries as far away as Brazil and Russia.
The Christian Brothers' involvement with the school ended in 1997 with the retirement of Brother Brennan but the ethos of the Brothers lives on in the school’s desire to provide a quality education to all who pass through its doors.
GOOD LUCK NAAS!!! The boys in Senior Infants have a special good luck message for you!

Creative Writing in 4th Class
As part of the BLAST arts initiative and in association with Kildare Education Centre, our two 4th classes took part in a workshop with the author Debbie Thomas. We were delighted to welcome Debbie to our school . She has written many books herself and travels all over the country encouraging children and adults to write for fun, and to build resilience and wellbeing. She uses creative writing to teach global education and to celebrate diversity. She’s the Writer in Residence at Crumlin Children’s Hospital and the Writer in Residence for the CDETB-JCSP project ‘We Write what We Like. Over a series of workshops with Debbie the boys collaborated on writing a book they named "The Write Feeling" exploring emotions through creative writing. They did some amazing work on wellbeing and creative writing and should be so proud of themselves for their amazing creativity!
