Welcome to the new school year. Our focus this year is ‘We Include’.
Here in St. Gabriel’s N.S. we strive to promote respect for the diversity of abilities, values, beliefs, traditions, languages and ways of life in our school and in our wider society. This year we welcome, along with our new Junior Infant class, lots of new pupils throughout the class levels. We hope that they gain a sense of community and belonging from day one.
As part of Good Friends Week each class will draw up a class charter with guidelines that we feel are important to help each classroom to be happy, safe, inclusive and productive places to be this year.
We will become mindful of the people around us and outside our circle. We want to reach out and invite all to join in and take part. We all belong to this community!
Ms. Sweetman’s 5th and 6th class will be wonderful role models to all pupils by becoming Playground Buddies to our new Junior Infant Class.
What a way to feel welcomed and included in our school!
