The year just ending was a notable year in the life of Scoil Ide with major STEM achievements on a national scale, a number of excellent new educational projects undertaken and we were part in national consultations on the new maths and Coding curricula.
We survived Ophelia and Emma without any major damage. We planted and harvested in the Outdoor Classroom and watched the swallows go and come again as we marked the seasons. We ‘paid it forward’ with kindness as our Students’ Council set an example for us all.
Our children have cycled, run, swam, played basketball, hockey, rugby, football and cricket, enjoyed gymnastics and yoga as we nurtured the #fitforlife concept.
They’ve played violin and recorder, sung in class, choir and assemblies.
Our parents have supported us hugely, both morally and financially and we appreciate the act of trust that takes place each day as they entrust their most loved ones to us.
Our Sixth Classes have worked incredibly hard and played a huge part in making the past year so successful. We wish them well for the future and are proud to remind them as they leave that no matter which educational institution claims them in later years
– they were ours first.
