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.
You and your child are about to begin a wonderful journey through Matthew Gibney Primary School, whose motto is “Under God‘s Protection”. We value the aspect of community at Matthew Gibney and we strive to build a positive partnership between home and school.
In addition to constant, yet ever changing play opportunities, the children also spend time “on the mat” and in small groups with the teacher or assistant at which time they receive explicit teaching, especially in the areas of English and Maths.
This booklet has been prepared to inform parents of details which will make cooperation between home and school easier. Please keep it for your information while your family is part of the Matthew Gibney Community.
