Light of Christ National School is a four teacher all girl’s school situated in the heart of the maritime village of Dunmore East, Co. Waterford.

Currently, there are 87 girls enrolled in the school.

There is a long history of education for girls in Dunmore going way back long before the current school which opened in 1991. 

Over the years there have been many changes including prefabs and in 2014 a lovely new extension was built to include an assembly hall, library and computer room, sports equipment room and a general office.

The current principal Ciara McSweeney joined the school in 2019.

Light of Christ National School is currently working towards amalgamating with Killea Boys NS, also in Dunmore East, with the new co-ed school, Réalt Na Mara NS, planned to open in September 2021.
