Our Sensory Rooms

We’re very lucky that our spacious school building has allowed us to set up two Sensory Rooms; one adjoining each of our two classrooms.
Having worked with several occupational therapists and other specialised educational professionals over the years, we made it our mission to provide more opportunities for multi-sensory learning in our school.
The Sensory Room is a relaxing, yet stimulating, learning environment. The wide range of activities and resources we have included in our Sensory Rooms can help to develop a variety of sensory and developmental skills. Children of all ages and abilities can benefit from these activities which aim to develop their fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye co-ordination, self-regulation, oral language etc. The children love getting the opportunity to go out to the Sensory Room to learn and practise these skills in a fun and hands-on way.

20th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement

The Good Friday Agreement has played a very significant role in creating peace on the island of Ireland since it was ratified in May 1998.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Department of Education and Skills organised a unique competition for schools, based on the theme of ‘20 Years of Peace and Reconciliation on the island of Ireland’.

Entries were to be of a creative nature so the children worked collaboratively to designed and create the following poster:
