Programmes

We take part in a number of programmes in Tyrrelstown ETNS. You can find a brief overview of a selection of programmes which may be used in various classes throughout the school.

Green Schools

Room 13

Room 13 Inquiry is a collaborative art education project that assists schools in Fingal investigate the potential of hosting an art studio for their students. During this inquiry participants are provided with opportunities to increase their natural capacity and capability for self-expression, philosophical inquiry and art making. Visits to current art exhibitions and artists’ studios provide essential experiences for connecting with the contemporary art world and ignite dialogue back in the school studio. Each studio operates as a space where people can share ideas, expertise, facilities, and responsibilities, and make art.

In Tyrrelstown ETNS we are lucky enough to have Anne Cradden, our Artist in Residence who operates our shared studio space, creates temporary art installations throughout our school and accompanies some of our pupils on trips to art exhibitions.

Global Citizenship School supports primary schools in learning about and taking appropriate action on local and global issues of Justice, Equality, Sustainability and Human Rights.
