When Scoil Éanna was opened in 1960 the Bullaun National School building became the local village hall. The Scoil Éanna building was a typical example of three teacher schools built in Ireland in the 60s, complete with water-tower and school shed. Toilets were now located within the building. The usual annual enrolment was in the order of 70 pupils with 3 teachers. It remained so throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s.
This enrolment slowly decreased throughout the 80s and 90s. By the year 2000, enrolment was 39 pupils. Then throughout the early 2000s there was a very significant increase in the number of houses being built within the broader Bullaun area. This was largely due to a highly proactive Bullaun Water Scheme. With the increase in houses being built enrolment at the school escalated. This necessitated the instalment of 4 prefabs. During this time an application was lodged to the Department of Education for a new school building. Throughout the years the school has worked with the Department in order to bring about the completion of this project. Thankfully this process is now at a very advanced stage.
