Ba mhaith liom fáilte ó chroí a chur romhat go dtí láithreán gréasáin na scoile. As Principal of Clarecastle National School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website. We thank you for taking the time to visit and we hope to provide you with an insight into the vibrant life of our school.
Our website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer our pupils and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work. We hope you enjoy your visit and return regularly to check out our latest news.
In Clarecastle National School we take a holistic view of learning and of the learner. We emphasise the need for pupils to develop a broad range of skills, competences and values that enable personal well-being, active citizenship and lifelong learning. We aim to build pupils’ self-confidence so that they are unafraid to take the risk of attempting new challenges. We help them blossom and grow as individuals and give them the academic, social and emotional skills to enable them to realise their full potential.
Every day I have the privilege of witnessing wonderful children grow and develop into individuals who are confident and assured of their worth. They are helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, special needs assistants, ancillary staff and other members of the school community.
In our school there is a true sense of community, where each member makes their own unique contribution, and where all experience the joys and struggles of working and growing together. It is this that makes Clarecastle National School a truly special place.
If you would like to learn more about our school, or arrange a visit, please follow the contact links and rest assured you will be more than welcome.
Le gach dea ghuí
M.J Malone, Principal
