During school year 2004-2005, our school successfully applied for inclusion into the Deis (Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools) Programme. This initiative has been co-ordinated by the Dept. of Education and Skills, to promote social inclusion. The scheme includes support services for curricular areas, home-school liaison services, additional grants etc. Some of the initiatives e.g. First Steps Writing, are already well underway. In school year 2009/2010, we began our involvement with the Maths Recovery Programme. In school year 2011/2012 we began First Steps Speaking and Listening. One of our staff attended First Steps Reading In-service, Summer 2012. Further information on DEIS and the Action Plans, relating to DEIS, are available from Principal/Deputy Principal/School Office.
