The point of the Creative Schools programme is to bring as much contact with the arts, as possible, into schools to encourage young students to participate in multiple art forms. As well as an ongoing dance project, which will facilitate all students in the school, we have decided to include relating art activities into the school curriculum as much as possible. There are also many obvious other curricular opportunities here e.g. SESE, Music, SPHE etc. We thank Mary Curran for coordinating this for us but most especially we are sincerely grateful to Ms Gráinne Healy for leading this in our school, ably helped by her Creative Arts team and committees of teachers and students.
