Creative Schools

It was with great excitement that it was announced that Castlerea Community School was successfully selected as one of the 160 Schools to participate in the Creative Schools Initiative .

Creative Schools aims to give our children and young people the opportunity to experience creativity as an integral part of their education placing the arts and creativity at the centre of school life. Over the course of two years the project will help us to understand, develop and celebrate the arts and creativity. We will receive funding from the Arts Council, to help us develop and implement a Creative School Plan, especially to suit our students.

We will be working together, with our Creative Associate, Valerie Haslam, and School Art Teacher and coordinator Ms. Connaughton to develop a whole school plan for creativity in our school.

We look forward to new projects, workshops, and creative events  and of course Creative School Week which takes place from 9th May to 13th.
