Crochet Class 1
On Monday morning Ceri Gilligan and Susie Vint dressed up to greet all our Primary 1 pupils and parents to promote their Families Connect programme, which is beginning in the New Year.  Can you guess who they were?
 Our first families Connect Course has sadly came to an end.  We had a fantastic time getting to know our group of parents and children.  Each week we discussed various topics such as Numeracy, Literacy and our Feelings as well as learning fun activities to support your child's learning at home.  The children joined us every week and spent quality time with their parent.  They loved knowing Mum or Dad was in their school learning with them.  On behalf of Ceri and myself I would like to thank you all for your time and dedication to the programme.  We all had a brilliant time.  So much so that we are beginning another session after the Easter Holidays!!

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.
