St. Attracta’s National School caters for children from a range of nationalities.  Some of these children have experienced trauma from war in their own countries. We are very proud of what we do to support these venerable children to settle into their new country and new community.

Watch the INTO webinar May 2022 where staff members describe how the school supports children who have experience trauma in their own countries before going on to enroll in St. Attracta’s National School. Go to 54:55 for the school’s input to the webinar.
