Respectful Online Communication Programme: An Garda Síochána

Garda Daniel Cowman, based in Douglas, will visit Scoil Niocláis on Tuesday 5th November 2013. He will speak to all our 6th class pupils.

This Garda initiative forms part of the overall Garda Primary Schools Programme which is a comprehensive education programme for senior pupils in Primary Schools throughout the country. It promotes sensible and responsible behaviour and fosters a positive attitude towards the Gardaí. It achieves this through visiting the class room and engaging in discussion with the students.

The new initiative addresses the personal safety that arises through communicating using new media. It recognises the challenges that children and young people face in modern society, particularly when using new technologies. It aims to foster a sense of care and respect for others online or when using mobile phones and to equip children with the skills to deal effectively with cyber bullying. It aims to enhance the social skills of communication, cooperation and conflict resolution.



Astroturf Pitch

A series of events are planned over the next year in order to raise funds to build an astro turf pitch in Scoil Niocláis. This pitch will be vital to the school and provide a valuable resource in physical education and in coaching our school teams. All the children in Scoil Niocláis will benefit from this fabulous resource. 
A good quality playing area will be quite expensive however it is a vital resource to a school like ours.
More info on upcoming events will be posted.
