We welcome you to our school website. We hope that it reflects life at our very busy little school. Here at Castlegar National School, we work tirelessly to provide a happy, friendly, caring environment, where children feel secure and valued. We aim to support our pupils to have full lives as children and to prepare them to live full and useful lives as adults in society as well rounded, confident and responsible individuals. Our pupils are encouraged to develop self-discipline and mutual respect for each other and for all adults, in an atmosphere that promotes learning and positivity, enabling children to reach their full potential. We respect and acknowledge the very important role that our parents play in the education of their children, their involvement is consistently sought throughout the school as we recognise that it is this collaborative partnership between home and school which enhances the children’s education, welfare and social awareness. Castlegar National School is a diverse, inclusive and welcoming school steeped in tradition and it is a privilege for us to work with such lovely children and supportive parents. We hope this website will give all our visitors a small insight into our school and we invite any prospective parents who wish to visit our school to contact us to make an appointment.
