The area in which the school is situated has a rich and varied history.
The history of Strathfoyle Village and Enagh can be traced as far back as Neolithic Man and is one of the main centres of early Christianity in the North West of Ireland.
In recent times Strathfoyle played a central role in the Battle of the Atlantic during World War Two.
St. Oliver Plunkett Primary School was opened in January 1975 to replace Enagh Primary School.
We cater for the children of Strathfoyle village and the Enagh Lough area.
Strathfoyle recently experienced a period of positive growth, with new housing in Coney Burrow and Temple Road with continuing development at Butler’s Wharf.
The local community has welcomed Polish migrant workers into the area.
Currently we have fourteen Polish children on our roll.
Over the past few years these children and their families have added a new cultural dimension to our school community.
A bright future lies ahead for the area.
