Effective partnerships are key to the success of all initiatives. In Piercestown N.S., we pride ourselves in the array and quality of partnerships. One of our strongest partnerships is with our local club St. Martin’s. They assist us with resources, facilities and human resources for various events. Working with Wexford County Council has afforded us opportunities for continuing professional development and courses. We have recently applied for ‘Golf lessons’ through Wexford County Council Sports section. In 2016, we made a new partnership with the HSE and are working towards becoming a recognised ‘Health Promoting School’. This allows us to combine our work across the curriculum, our journey towards being an active school and the holistic education of the children into one coherent project.
