The aim of the Board of Management and the staff of the H.F.S. with assistance and guidance from the Department of Education and Skills and the H.S.E North East, is to provide the highest quality of care and education to all the children in this service, thus enabling them to achieve their fullest potential and thereby allow them to participate as fully as possible within their local communities and society in general.
The Primary School Curriculum celebrates the uniqueness of the child as it is expressed in each child’s personality, intelligence and potential for development. It is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of his her life – spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.
