About Kildysart Community College
St. John Bosco Community College, Kildysart, opened in September 2002 replacing Cahercon Secondary School and Kildysart Vocational School. Our core aim is the provision of an educational experience that is life enchancing for all, both teacher and pupil: a school that together with the home provides a happy environment where the Christian spirit is nurtured: the dignity of the individual is cherished; where diligence, courtesy, participation and respect are fostered and the code of discipline is implemented for the good of the individual.
