Scoil Naomh Cualán
Scoil Naomh Cualán is a Roman Catholic Primary School. Mr. Michael Small is our administrative principal. The teaching staff comprises of seven mainstream class teachers, three S.E.N. teachers and two A.S.D. teachers. The school also has seven S.N.A.s.
The school aims to educate the child to take its place in society as a responsible citizen. Its ethos embraces all nationalities and cultures. Our vision seeks to equip the children with the skills necessary to reach their full potential academically, socially, morally and spiritually by the time they have completed their primary education.
While offering a broad curriculum, St. Cualan’s N.S. places particular emphasis on the development of literacy and numeracy, especially in the early years. Great care is taken also to nurture the artistic and cultural talents of our students. Music, craft, drama and cookery have an important place in our curriculum. In keeping with our emphasis on physical and emotional wellbeing, the school gives priority to physical education and sport.
In keeping with research on how children learn, the staff believe that their students learn best when they are active in their own learning. Accordingly we use a range of active learning methodologies that helps to engage them and develop the natural curiosity and imagination they bring with them to formal schooling.
