Eco-School Programme

Whenever possible, our teachers make use of the ‘outdoor classroom’ learning experience to work towards our Eco-goals. The Eco-School Programme aims to promote environmental education, to stimulate sensitivity and awareness, and encourage responsible environmental choices and attitudes.  It presents opportunities for whole-school improvement across all grades, and encourages learner involvement through participating and initiating action projects that encourage experiential learning and self-discovery.

Rising above the Rest

Our pupils participate in a number of Olympiads, Cluster Tests and National papers which enable us to gauge the academic performance of Athlone Park Primary against that of similar schools in the area.
