Family Fun Night & Multicultural Evening 2015
A wonderful night was had by all at our annual Family Fun Night & Multicultural Evening. We were treated to delicious food from around the world. The children and adults were able to enjoy the numerous outdoor activities and stalls. This event is only made possible because of the hard work and dedication of the Parents' Group, the parent volunteers and staff. Well done everyone.
Celebrating Diversity, Learning Together for Life
Welcome to the Oakgrove Integrated Primary School and Nursery website. Our core business is 'Learning Together for Life' in an atmosphere which celebrates the diverse society in which we live. We hope our website reflects that and gives you information about all aspects of our school community including access to our school prospectus, curriculum information, policies, extra curricular activities, parent and community links. It will give current news and will provide you with links to other related sites.
For the children, there are class pages where their work is displayed and activities, which will support their learning, available for them to access. We hope you find our website enjoyable, accessible and useful.
Our Aim at Oakgrove
At Oakgrove Integrated Primary School and Nursery our purpose is learning together for life and celebrating diversity. We aim to provide child centred education in an integrated environment, where families and the wider community are involved. We are an integrated learning community which seeks to learn together, of and from one another, regardless of creed, race, gender or ability.
At Oakgrove we are keen to challenge our children and staff and the rest of our school community. We have an ethos, within the school where we embrace difference and celebrate diversity. Exposure to as a wide a variety of experiences and challenges is what helps children, staff, families and ultimately our communities to grow. As an integrated school, a school which teaches children of all creeds, race, gender and ability, we want to lead the way for education in Northern Ireland. 94% of the children in our country are educated in a school system where their peers are of the same religion. As an integrated school we want to challenge this, on a local and global level.
