KiVa Kick-Off

It was all happening in Redeemer Boys' N.S. on Friday 28th September as we had our 'KiVa Kick-Off' event!! We are making bullying prevention a priority by implementing this evidence-based Finnish anti-bullying programme. It has been brought to Ireland by 'The Genesis Programme' and we are part of the first cohort of schools to be trained in the programme, one of two schools in Dundalk! The teachers will now begin exploring the various themes with the pupils. Parents will be invited to an information meeting in October.

 

Green Flag Success!

Mrs Hart, Mr McArdle and two Fifth Class boys travelled to the City North Hotel on Thursday 17th May for the annual Green Schools awards ceremony. We are delighted to announce that they were presented with a Green Flag for Energy! Within the theme of Energy we looked at the steps which could be taken to reduce energy consumption in our school. Additionally, the Green Schools Committee (of which the two boys are members) raised awareness around climate change issues, the use of energy in our lives and where energy comes from. Thank you to Mrs Hart and Mr McArdle for promoting this initiative and supporting the boys throughout the process. 

New Playground!!

Coding Ireland's Pilot Programme

We are delighted to announce that Redeemer Boys' N.S. has been chosen as one of six primary schools nationwide to take part in Coding Ireland's Pilot Programme.

In today’s ever evolving world, technology and IT skills are now more important than ever. We are very excited about this opportunity to introduce coding to our pupils. Coding can be extremely engaging, teaching computer science, maths, social skills, teamwork, and problem solving in a way that pupils can easily relate to.There are also additional benefits for pupils with Special Educational Needs.
