Fri, 18/12/2020 - 15:42 -- Editor

This week Santa visited Culmore Primary School to officially unveil two brand new mobile classrooms, as the school gears up to begin accepting digital applications for next year’s Year Ones from January 7.

The two large, bright and fully equipped, brand new mobile classrooms are situated on the lower area of the school grounds. These classrooms are fitted with 75-inch Clevertouch interactive screens and each room contains library areas suited to the ability of the pupils within that classroom. Laptops, tablets and other specialist equipment are available for use by all pupils.

The large Key Stage One/Two playground area is marked out for team games.  The Foundation Stage playground area displays brightly coloured markings which enhances the fun learning already going on in the classroom.

The school also features a beautiful outdoor learning area which consists of a soft-pour filled climbing area, low-walled outdoor classroom area and grassy willow garden featuring carved, wooden seating.

School principal Clare McMenamin explained the advantages of Culmore PS like this:

“School Ethos

The teachers at Culmore Primary School strive to respect the experiences, knowledge and cultural diversity that every child brings to the school – nurturing confident children of all backgrounds and abilities.

High Standards

The children always come first and the priority is to deliver high quality teaching and learning across the whole curriculum, whilst providing rich and truly enjoyable experiences for their community of children. All of the pupils who sat the Transfer Test in 2020 successfully achieved their first choice school.

The very structure of our Staff, Board of Governors and pupils reflects a multi-cultural ethos.

“We want all children to have the opportunity to express, and celebrate, their individual talents.  We value each child’s voice and feel that they should be listened to and contribute to school life”, said Mrs. McMenamin.

Year One Digital applications for Culmore Primary School open at 12 noon on 7th January 2021. Limited places.
