We hope this site will offer you an insight into life at St. Oliver Plunkett B.N.S.


Our school, built in 1937, is a senior school catering for boys from 2nd to 6th class.  We are located in the picturesque town of Moate, Co. Westmeath, in the heart of Ireland. 

We have 4 mainstream teachers as well as a learning support teacher and a resource teacher.

We are lucky to have the expertise of a rugby coach and a G.A.A. coach as well as a music teacher who come to the school every week.

We also play a variety of instruments such as tin whistle and trumpet as well as using our most important instrument, our voices.
