Picturesquely located on the banks of the river Suir and flanked by the impressive Cathedral of the Assumption, Scoil Angela is a mixed primary school catering for up to 300 pupils.
It has a wide range of facilities which include well equipped classrooms, game zoned playground, sensory garden, large concert hall, separate lunchroom and the use of spacious playgrounds. In addition to the normal curriculum the school also makes available the following extra curricular and after school activities – French, Sports Club, Art & Crafts, Creative Dance, Speech & Drama and Little Stars Choral Group.
Music is especially important in Scoil Angela. We participated in Cór na nÓg in ‘yesteryears’ and our Senior Choir sang recently with Peace Proms in the RDS in Dublin…an amazing experience! We are proud of our music tradition and were delighted to be nominated for Best Musical Number in the Bord Gais Energy Awards 2016 with our own production of ‘Think’.
We have a teacher on our staff trained to deliver the ‘Friends for Life’ Programme. This is a school based positive mental health programme for all children. It helps them to develop effective strategies to deal with worry, stress and change and teaches the skills required to reduce anxiety and promote resilience.
Our weekly Junior and Senior Assemblies also seek to develop the skills of resilience with the children becoming aware of the ability to ‘bounce back’ from daily challenges.
Finally, we remember fondly the past pupils and staff of ‘yesteryears’ and acknowledge that Scoil Angela today stands proudly ‘on the shoulders of those who came before’.
