Our 3 core beliefs around learning are:

3corebeliefs

Our commitment is to place Learning and Teaching 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.

Wellread Programme

wellreadlogo

We are delighted to announce that we have received the "wellread" award, an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The school community is now recognised nationally as a school that promotes and encourages a culture of reading.

You can read more about the award on the PDST website by clicking here, and you can find out more about our school initiatives under the "extra-curricular" tab above.
