Our school has been chosen to participate in an Action Research Wellbeing Project, run by the Department of Education. We are one of 20 primary schools throughout Ireland who have been selected to take part in this exciting project. Over the coming months, we will be participating in staff training, students will have the opportunity to learn more about wellbeing and parents will be invited to complete a survey to help us get your opinions.

At the core of the Pushkin Trust’s work is the Schools’ Programme which is a cross-curricular, cross-community and cross-border project. Students from the Senior room will be participating in a wonderful project entitled “The Spark of Stillness” between now and June. They will be undertaking lots of activities based around their interpretation of the theme, including focused classroom lessons and some guided workshops presented by facilitators in the Spring term. The work will be a mixture of environmental lessons, and the arts- including music, art, drama, mindfulness and creative writing. http://www.pushkintrust.com/about/what-we-do/
We are very lucky to have the opportunity to participate in this programme.
We were thrilled to be selected as the winner of the “Biodiversity Award”, in the Environmental Awards Ceremony for the Tidy Schools Competition 2019, which took place in The Arts Centre in Roscommon, on 5th November. The prize is a great recognition for the hard work and dedication we have put into our school garden throughout the year. Two of our senior students accepted the award on behalf of the school. Well done to all our staff, students and parents who helped out in the garden during school and in the summer holidays.
