Nurturing the self worth
and potential of all…
Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School is a school dedicated to making a valued difference in the lives of our children. We trust that when people look back at the time spent in our school they cherish fond memories of a genuine and faithful community, ‘Under God’s Protection’ always.
Greeting students and parents at the car park as they arrive each morning has become a most enjoyable part of my day. We have been encouraging conversational manners and it is pleasing to see the excellent improvement in this area for all our children, from the youngest through to the eldest students. It is important that we encourage our students to be confident and independent in all aspects of their lives. Speaking confidently is a life long skill that can make a difference to the self esteem of young people. I love it when the students stop to greet me, converse about their evening or weekend, and respond without prompting with excellent conversational manners.
