Scoil Fhionáin is located in the town of Kilfinane in county Limerick. Our new school building was opened in September 2012 on Castle street across the road from Saint Andrews Church. The school building is a contemporary design which has been built to the highest quality. There are 6 classrooms which are very spacious and their design has been influenced by the importance of creating a learning environment that maximises teaching and learning. There is also a large gym,outdoor ball court and play area.
The Kilfinane Tree of Life is a piece of art located in the main entrance hall. The piece was designed by artists Eithne Ring and Liam Lavery in 2011. The bark of the tree depicts an old map of Kilfinane. This is to symbolise the children’s sense of place within the community. Using the aerial view of the Kilfinane moat as the main motif for the leaves, the images show various aspects of school life and the children’s sense of place within the school. In the bottom panel, the final theme is that of the children’s sense of place within the wider environment portrayed by aspects of the natural world depicted.
