A very warm welcome to our website which we hope you will find informative. It is our intention to provide visitors with an overview of school life and present the opportunity for you to celebrate with us the achievements and accomplishments of our children.
Our children enjoy learning and working together. The friendly ‘family ‘ethos of the school encourages high expectations of all our pupils and enhances each pupil’s personal development within Catholic attitudes and values.
St. Francis of Assisi Breakfast Club
In St. Francis of Assisi Primary School Keady, we aim to educate our children in a safe, happy and stimulating school environment to enable them to fulfil their unique potential.
We aim to create opportunities for children to collaborate in the learning process, become lifelong learners, have mutual respect and contribute positively to their local and global societies for the good of all.
Christian values are placed at the centre of our daily life and underpin all the relationships we develop in a caring school community.
St Francis ofAssisi Primary School is a Catholic School and values strong links between home, school and parish, and welcomes all children and their families.
Our Easter Assembly
Our assembly started with a prayer service to help us prepare for Easter. The children reflected on the 14 stations of the cross and said a prayer for each station which was led by a number of pupils in Key Stage 2.
Assembly continued with the Speech and Drama festival participants performing their poems in front of the whole school. They did a wonderful job and everyone enjoyed listening to the different poems. A huge congratulations again to all those who took part in the festival you did the school proud.
We celebrated the success of the Credit Union quiz who made it to the next stage of the competition but were narrowly beaten. Well done again to all those in the team.
Children who took part in the Reading Partnership Programme were presented with a certificate for all their hard work and dedication.
This has been a very busy term for all our pupils who have been working extremely hard. So we would like to wish them a restful and fun filled Easter break.
The staff and pupils would like to thank the coaches from the local GAA club who visit our school every week and coach our boys and girls in Key Stage 2. The school would like to show its appreciation to the football club by having a cake sale in the school on Thursday 27th April from 2:15p.m to raise funds for the club. We are asking all our families to bake something for this and come along to support the event. All items can be left in school on the morning of the 27th April. All support would be greatly appreciated.
We are very excited to be getting a new covered outdoor play area!
