Our School Initiatives
Sport in Dunmore N.S.
Sport and physical activity are an intrinsic part of the fabric of Scoil Nioclás Naofa. The spacious grounds allow for many games to be played during break times. Soccer and Rounders are the most popular. Other playground games like 40/40 and skipping are played regularly.
Scoil Nioclás Naofa has a long tradition of swimming. Children from Senior Infants to sixth have a great opportunity to improve their skills with weekly lessons for classes in blocks throughout the year.
More recently the children have had the opportunity to explore dance, gymnastics and yoga. These activities have proven very popular.
Dunmore N.S. Green Flag
We are very proud of our first green flag. We have tackled and continue to work on litter and waste in our school environment. We need the help of all pupils and especially parents to help us maintain the high standard we have achieved.
Here’s what you can do to help:
Using active learning and play as a methodology in this curriculum framework which has been developed for children from birth to 6 years of age. Junior and Senior infant teachers incorporate purposeful play sessions into their teaching and children’s learning develops through interaction with each other and partnership with parents.
