Creative Schools Summary

21st May 2024

Creative Schools 2022-2024

Windfield NS has come to the end of our  two year Creative Schools journey, nevertheless we will continue to use our Creative Schools Plan and carry on providing creative experiences to pupils.

Creative Schools supports schools like ours in Ireland to put Arts and Creativity at the hearts of children's and young people's lives. 

By taking part in this two-year guided journey Windfield NS  developed  a Creative Schools Plan unique to our own school, and put it into action.

The children’s involvement in planning, decision-making and reflection was  central to our journey.

Our Creative School’s journey took place over two school years.
