It wasn't what We expected! - We made the right decision.
As a parent, it is always a big step, choosing the school which your son or daughter will attend... After all it is the base line for their life ahead.
When it came to that time for us, we were very very confused. We would have both attended large primary & secondary schools, & really knew nothing else. We only knew of being in Classes of 35.
We found it very hard to comprehend, how a school with small classes could be best for our Children... Like I say, we knew nothing else but large classes.
However, We really wanted our children & ourselves to be part of the community.
We attended an open morning, & what struck us instantly, was :
- the "normality" in the school,
- the easy going feeling in the school,
- the Friendliness of the Teachers, Staff &
- what struck us most, was the friendliness & enthusiasm of the Children in the school. They all swooned around the smaller children, taking care of them & having fun with them... In our school days, that never happened.
I Love how the teachers command respect from the children, while not being hard on the kids. They have fun, lots of fun, They learn through fun. In other words, they are having a child-hood & learning without fear.
My Children have great care, & are basically getting one on one attention. I can speak with the teachers whenever I need to, & get an update on my childrens progress almost every week we talk.
This School is about the Children. My Children are very very well Educated, They are having fun & are never going to school with worry or fear. In fact, I have alot of trouble trying to make them stay at home when they are sick!!! They never want to miss a day of school
We are so very glad & Grateful, that we chose Dromagh N.S
