Hello and welcome to St. Columba’s PS, Newbuildings, school’s website. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our school website. This website aims to give you a taster of what is going on within our school community and also provide regular up to date information for current and prospective parents and pupils.
St. Columba’s PS is a small, friendly, family oriented school served by a committed and professional staff. The staff engage fully with the Northern Ireland Revised Curriculum providing a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum appropriate to the children’s individual needs enablingeach pupil to achieve their full potential. The staff, supported by a range ofqualified external coaches, also provide a wide range of after school clubs.
For those parents accessing the website who are interested in enrolling their child at St. Columba’s PS there is limited availability across the primary school from Reception through to P7. Our class sizes are smaller than average which facilitates a greater level of one to one teacher support reflected in the children’s academic performance which is well above the Northern Ireland average. The school operates an ‘open door policy’ for new and prospective parents to come and visit the school and see it for yourself. Please contact Miss Capatti (the school Secretary) or Mrs Callan (the Principal) to arrange a time to come and visit the school.
As newly appointed Principal of the school I would like toend by thanking the children, staff, parents, Parent Teacher Association, Board of Governors and those associated with the wider school community for welcoming me so warmly to the school and their ongoing support. Thank you.
