Lusk National School
- Senior Boys (Football)
- Senior Boys (Hurling)
- Junior Boys (Football)
- Junior Girls (Football)
Lusk National School was originally located beside the church of St. MacCullins. Over time, the small school became insufficient for the needs of the community. In 1955, a new four teacher, four classroom school was built at its current location on Chapel Road. In 1971, the extension of the school began.
The school is now a 24 classroom establishment, and continues to grow and welcome a new generation of children from the community.
Corduff National School
- Senior Boys (Football)
- Senior Girls (Football)
The school is situated along the busy R132 road, formerly the N1 road to Belfast. It has traditionally served a rural catchment area in Lusk parish but is adjacent to a growing urban area.
The original school was built in 1844. The old school was on the lane which is still called Schoolhouse Lane, situated about 100 metres south of the present school. It was built on his own property by William Hanna, Corduff House. The building itself was a one room single-storey structure. By 1851, there were 38 males and 76 females on the rolls.
In 1900, the Parish Priest of Lusk, Fr Heffernan, became the Manager and he set about planning for a new school in the area.
In 1906, the pupils in Corduff moved from the old school in Corduff to their brand new building. The school was ready for use in 1906 and the teacher’s residence at the rear of the school was ready in 1908.
It is worth noting that the Irish patriot Thomas Ashe was Principal at Corduff from 1908 to 1916. (Thomas Ashe) Founder of Round Towers Lusk GAA Club
Rush and Lusk Educate Together
R.A.L.E.T has a total of 244 children in the school. The school continues to grow from strength to strength and will hopefully field a GAA team in 2013
Educate Together is the representative organisation of the Educate Together schools and associations throughout the Republic of Ireland. It owes its origins to the movement to establish new multi-denominational primary schools, which emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
