The Creative Schools programme aims to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children and young people’s lives.
It gives children and young people a central role in the process. Back in June 2018, we were selected as one of 150 schools nationally to take part in this pilot initiative which will help us understand, develop and celebrate the arts and creativity in our school.
We have been assigned a Creative Associate, Jojo Hynes, who will support our school to develop a Creative School Plan for the year ahead. Jojo will assist in creating and developing links between schools and artists/ art and cultural organisations at local and national level along with challenging us to think in new and different ways.
Meet our Creative Schools Team – a representative group who will lead the Creative School process here at Gortskehy.
We are looking forward to working with the Arts Council and Jojo on this exciting initiative this year.
