Our 3 Core Beliefs Around Learning

3corebeliefs

Mission Statement

Our school is a community of learning in an environment of respect and commitment. All who live in our area are welcome to participate in our learning experience in an atmosphere of openness and inclusion. We embrace the future.

Framework for Development

Our commitment is to place Teaching and Learning at the heart of the school community and to facilitate and foster lifelong learning within the wider community.

Our commitment is to enhance the self esteem of all our students by realising their learning potential. Within this context, we believe cocurricular and extra-curricular activities and positive behaviour management are essential to the life and well being of our school.

Our commitment is to a school where the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of all teachers is facilitated and nurtured through school initiatives and Departmental in-services and training.

Our commitment is to create a school capable of engaging in the dynamics of continuous improvement and to foster among our students, in co-operation with parents and guardians, a set of moral values and principles which will guide them now and into their adult lives.

Our commitment is to expand our inter-school network in both the primary and secondary sector by cooperating on matters of mutual benefit in both curricular and extra curricular areas.
