Dear Parents/ Guardians

We extend a warm welcome to you and your child to Castlegar NS. It is our aim that your child will be extremely happy in our school and will achieve his/her full potential by being happy, sociable and respectful in our school’s pleasant and stimulating learning environment. There is a strong sense of community and a high level of co-operation between staff, pupils, parents and visitors.
Castlegar National School has a Catholic Ethos as outlined in the Catholic School’s Schedule displayed in the school foyer. A spirit of prayer promotes an atmosphere of kindness, appreciation and forgiveness. As outlined in our Enrolment Form, we follow the Alive-O programme (Veritas) for Religious Education.
There is top quality teaching and learning: where a complement of basic skills are fostered, including linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical and social with a technological orientation across the whole curriculum. It is one which maximises individual potential and ensures students of all ability levels are well equipped to meet the challenges of education, work and life.
There is a stimulating, comfortable and happy learning environment: where children will recognise and achieve their fullest potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society and have high personal expectations.
