New Lodge Schools’ Cluster


The school has an excellent outreach to the wider community through the New Lodge Schools’ Cluster.

The aim of the cluster is to promote a shared partnership between the schools, parents and community, supporting them in the process of life long learning. 


The dedicated parents’ room is an important resource in our community as it provides an opportunity for parents to get to know each other, have fun, get more involved in the school and participate in events and courses. 


We have a variety of courses and events to cater for everyone.  Parents can take part in accredited courses, including; Essential Skills in Maths, English, Linguistic Phonics, Irish History, Crochet, Walking Club, Cookery, Families First, Yoga and Therapy Treats.  


Many of our parents have gained employment by coming along to enhance their skills and make more friends and contacts. 


Parents can avail of FREE CHILDCARE in our Cluster of Stars Crèche whilst attending courses, suitable for children aged 0-3.


All classes provide free childcare. Contact Susie for more information.

Thank you for your continuous support, we love watching you all grow, have fun and develop your skills.
