At the Front door, you will be aware of our controlled access for visitors. All other doors operate on a self-closing and alarmed system for the security of pupils. The security and alarm system for the school has been extended and upgraded. Outside improvements have been made to pathways, lighting, and the security fence to the rear of the school. We benefit from well-maintained grounds and extensive playing fields at the back of the school.
The School Chapel has been re furbished. Holy Mass is celebrated here once a week and more frequently during Advent and Lent; classes take their turn to assist with the Mass. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the Chapel and it is a beautiful place of prayer for individuals and groups. Whole-school celebrations of the Liturgy take place in the Main Hall.
GAMES HALL AND GYMNASIA
The two gymnasia and changing rooms have clearly benefited from a significant up- grade. The Main Hall has a superb sports floor of the highest quality. We really need to take great ' care of this! The Dining Hall next-door is re-floored and re-decorated. Our catering staffs provide meals of a high quality.
The Main Hall is multipurpose and provides a venue for school celebrations of the Liturgy. It is also used for Theatre productions, the Pantomime, Talent Concerts and Charity fund- raising as well as for Discos, Ceilidhs and our Burns Supper. It is also used for Prizegiving and Examinations.
SCHOOL LIBRARY AND RESOURCE CENTRE
This was doubled in size a few years ago and continues to expand with two areas provided for the use of ICT technology. Ask our Librarian about the extent of school, Council and government support for new books. The new shelving provides for further expansion.
The Library is fully in use at class-times and break-times. It is also actively used by our younger pupils after school through the Homework Club. Our older pupils benefit from the after school tutorial groups in a wide range of subjects through Supported Study.
