Creative Schools is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme to enable the creative potential of every child. It aims to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children and young people’s lives. We were delighted to be a recipient of this award for the 2021/2022 school year. Our overall goal is to integrate creativity and fun into our approach to learning across all curriculum areas at Kilberry National School.
We are delighted that we will be given the opportunity to work with a creative associate for the duration of the project. Creative Associates are artists, creative practitioners and/or educators with an understanding of the arts and creativity and its potential to transform the lives of children and young people. Creative Associates are assigned to match the needs of schools to arts and creative opportunities in their locality. We look forward to meeting our creative associate who will work with our school on this exciting project over the next two years.
