Welcome to our school website. Our school has a long and proud history in Education in Tralee. Scoil Lios Teilic was first established on the 10th of October 1864 and the school has continued to serve the locality in its present site since 1969. The school is situated to the North of Tralee town with beautiful panoramic views of the Slieve Mish Mountains, Tralee Bay and the bustling town.

The school's current enrolment is 224 (2017/2018).  We are an eight classroom co-educational school with single stream classes from junior infants to sixth class.  We have an Administrative Principal, four Learning Support/Resource Teachers, four Special Needs Assistants, a School Secretary and a School Caretaker.  Scoil Lios Teilic is a Catholic School under the patronage of the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne. Our school has a Catholic Ethos and we also welcome children from other faiths and none.  In keeping with the principles of education, our school is democratically run by our Board of Management. The involvement of parents is sought and encouraged both at Board and Parent Association level. We have an extremely supportive Parents Association who get involved in many positive initiatives every academic year.

Family Fun Day was held on Sunday 28th May at Na Gaeil GAA grounds and proved to be a great day out for all the family.  Many thanks to the Parents Council who organised this event and thank you to all who volunteered on the day also.  Loads more photos on the Photo Gallery

The Walk-a-Marathon challenge is complete and it has been a resounding success with positive feedback from parents, teachers and most importantly the pupils.

On Monday 3rd April Mr. Jimmy Deenihan returned to the school for the closing ceremony along with Sergeant O'Sullivan and Garda Moriarty.  Garda Aidan O'Mahony also attended and took time to speak with the pupils about health, fitness and nutrition.

This fitness promoting initiative saw the school become one of the first primary schools in Ireland to have all of its 220 pupils completing either a full or half marathon in a non-competitive and fun way.

To complete the ‘Walk-a-Marathon’ challenge the children in senior classes each walked/jogged/ran 1km a day for a total of 6 weeks, while the children in junior classes will completed 500m a day over the same period. 

The children undertook this challenge not only to improve their fitness levels, but also to help raise funds to introduce further fitness initiatives and to purchase P.E. equipment and we would like to sincerely thank all who supported this.
