We would like to create and environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.

Many thanks to the social committee for all their continued hard work in keeping all members of staff smiling!

This week, Ms. Dee’s and Ms. Brennan’s classes had their second Schools Cultural Award Drama Project. They had great fun travelling back in time to Ancient Egypt and exploring the character of 13 year old Cessair. The children acted in role to plan and build a boat after rumours of a big flood about to hit the town. They also brainstormed ideas of what skills/qualities a good team member on the boat might have. They are already looking forward to their next session!
