Our school’s vision can be summed up in three words: Happy, Safe, Learn. Since the school opened in 2008, we have strived to make sure that everyone within our community feels part of that vision. We believe that everyone – that is all children, all families and all staff – have the right to be happy, be safe and be able to learn.
Educate Together is the representative organisation for primary & secondary equality-based schools in Ireland. It is an independent NGO that runs and supports schools that guarantee equality of access and esteem to children “irrespective of their social, cultural or religious background.”
As a school, we strive everyday to have a happy, safe school for everybody. By cherishing difference, respecting ourselves and others and living the ethos of Educate Together, we support each other to become the best we can be at school and in life.
