Junior School Principal Tony Kilcommons had a dream, and despite the inevitable construction delays and the almost-as-inevitable Irish tendency to undercut any idealism and enthusiasm, he persevered… and now the Junior School boys and girls are walking, talking and learning within that dream!
Or, in Mr. Kilcommons’ own words, uttered just a few short months ago: “We are working with design company TAP Creations to invigorate the spaces created by the new building work in the school over the summer (and autumn!). We wish to give our pupils a platform to express creativity and work together in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
The St. Conleth’s Primary Learning Programme places an emphasis on personalised learning and the installation of break-out seating areas and cluster pods will be very conducive to such a focus. Ideas from our own pupils, as well as staff, will be incorporated into the design process and we know that when it is finished, we will have a bright and visually stimulating school, of which we all can be proud.” Well, judging by the pics and video above and below, that dream has been realised!
