IN SCHOOL EVENTS
From time to time we invite artists, performers and theatre groups to visit our school to perform for our pupils. Learning in a fun and enjoyable way appeals to the children and makes for many happy occasions here at school. Rampark N.S. is situated on the main Dundalk to Carlingford road, 12 kilometres from Dundalk and between the Cooley Mountains and Dundalk Bay.
The school will follow the prescribed Curriculum of the Department of Education and Science taking into account the school context factors of multi classes and class size. Children will be encouraged to care for the environment in the school building and grounds and in the neighbourhood and wider community. Children will be encouraged to take part in competitions relating to the environment, sport, art and writing. Children will be prepared for the sacraments of First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation with the support and involvement of their parents and the parish clergy. Children will be prepared for transition to Post primary schools and consultation will take place with those schools with regard to their academic achievement and their particular talents.
An atmosphere of care, concern, respect and support for each other will be fostered in the school.
Our mission is to embrace the pursuit of excellence both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage critical thinking and emphasize the learning process.
