O’Dowd opens new playpark at Holy Rosary Primary School
Education Minister, John O’Dowd, has visited Holy Rosary Primary School where he officially opened a new outside play area.
Speaking during the visit, the Minister said: “I welcome the opportunity to visit Holy Rosary Primary School and unveil a plaque officially opening this newly installed play equipment.
“The pupils and parents of the school raised a substantial amount towards the cost of installing these facilities through various fund raising events and I wish to congratulate each and every one of them for this achievement. The different components chosen by the children and teachers will aid the development of motor movement skills of the pupils while also allowing them to have fun.”
Concluding the Minister said: “This school also plays an important part in the community. A Home School Association has been formed consisting of parents working with teachers to raise funds while enhancing the school community. It provides an excellent opportunity for parents to get to know the school and become active in school activities.”
The Minister also visited Oakwood School and Assessment Centre where he met with teachers and pupils. The Minister had the opportunity to view the facilities of the school and hear first-hand about the good work being undertaken there.
