School History

Presentation Secondary School Thurles is a vibrant and successful school where staff and pupils work together in a positive and friendly environment.

The Presentation Sisters have been involved in education in Thurles since 1817, where they have dedicated themselves to serving the local community, providing outstanding primary and secondary education grounded in the Presentation ethos.

September 1970 saw the opening of the present secondary school state of the art building that provides excellent facilities for students in the school including Language laboratories, Cookery kitchens and Art Room.

In September 1989, the Board of Management headed by the first lay Principal, Miss Jean Butler took over the running of the school from the Presentation Sisters.

The generosity of the Presentation Sisters, the continuous fundraising efforts by parents, staff and community along with the cooperation of the Department of Education and Science have allowed for the development of a 3 million euro state of the art sports complex. The venue comprising of an international sized basketball court, dance studio, fully equipped gym and meeting room is utilised effectively by both the school and the local community.

Due to increased enrolment, the school embarked on a further building project in June 2008, developing six new Classrooms, enhanced Staff Facilities, impressive Entrance Foyer and Reception Area, Meeting Rooms and a Music Room. The addition of sympathetic landscaping, ground works, insulation and a new heating system have greatly enhanced the teaching and learning environment, one that is enjoyed thoroughly by the entire school community.
