Our Lady of Lourdes opened in September 1964. We have seven classrooms, a main hall and a community kitchen; we also have a lovely nursery on site which was built ten years after the main school. We are very fortunate in having large playing areas for our children and access to extensive grassland in the finer weather. Our children are catered for extremely well at lunch-times with a choice of healthy menus and organised activities carefully supervised by trained midday assistants. A wide choice of extra-curricular school clubs are always on offer and strong links with the parish and wider community are actively encouraged.
We are proud to belong to the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes. Click here for Rev. Fr. Ned Wall's website.
2014-2015 was our Golden Jubilee Year. Read about it here - click here for details.
Children from across the school have been lucky enough to contribute to an art project by having their hands cast. The completed hands will form a giant mural at the new shopping centre. You can expect to see your child's hand on the mural from April, for many years to come! Artist Sophie Mahon has made a video of the messy process. What a privilege it was to work with such talent. Watch the video here.
STAY AND PLAY
At the start of Autumn 2 we welcomed parents into school for our Stay and Play Session in our Early Years. It was a wonderful day for everyone involved.
Here are some comments from our parents.
'Stay and Play was brilliant. My child was so excited to show me around his school.'
'I came away re-assured that my child was learning in a very safe and caring environment.'
'We found lots of new fun ways to help our child with his learning at home.'
