We are delighted to announce that our school has been recognised as a Changemaker School by DCU. Ms Harte and Ms Mc Loughlin attended an ceremony in DCU before Christmas and met other new schools in the Changemaker School Network.
DCU describe Changemaker schools as
A Changemaker is someone with the skills and confidence to lead change in their home, school, or community.
Changemakers are active citizens.
A Changemaker is a social innovator- someone who is taking creative action to solve a social problem.
Changemaking is transforming your world however big or small.
DCU Changemaker Schools practice and live the values of empathy, creativity, leadership, and teamwork.
Through the development of school cultures which foster the agency of students as Changemakers, we hope to positively influence and empower students’ identity and citizenship, in a changing world.
We are very much looking forward to working with and learning from other Changemaker schools during the year.
