Our son spent his last two years of primary school in John Scottus and we cannot be more grateful to the school community: principal, staff and teachers, for the difference this change made to our son’s confidence and development as a person. He experienced a joyful, caring environment, a rich academic programme, and most importantly, a sense of belonging and self-worth.
During our visits over the two years, we always noted the way the work of the school was carried out with great intention: the aesthetics of the building, the calmness of the environment, and how the talents of the children were brought to the forefront and celebrated in an equitable manner.
The teachers used every opportunity available to them to extend and enrich the children’s learning. During his time, our son participated in many scientific adventures to the RDS, sang with the National Children’s Choir and developed projects for The Junior Entrepreneur Programme, to name a few.
In short, we are delighted we had the opportunity to send our son to this school. John Scottus is a rare find and an advocate for childhood in today’s busy world.
