Principal's Welcome

Mrs A Donaghey

I am excited and honoured to welcome everyone to Oakgrove Integrated Primary School and Nursery.  Thank you for being part of the OIPSN community where we are committed to our mission statement ‘Celebrating Diversity- Learning Together for Life.

 

We are a child-centred, all inclusive, integrated school that revolves around the achievement of each child’s potential- academically, socially, physically and emotionally.  With a positive attitude and a sense of fun, we will create an enriched learning environment that is a safe and happy place for each child to achieve success.  Our staff is dedicated, caring and professional.  We are looking forward to working with the whole school community to help Oakgrove’s pupils become active learners who are imaginative, inquisitive, innovative and creative.

 

The Oakgrove website is an amazing online resource whereby the school can share information about the school day, celebrate achievements and highlight upcoming events.  On the website you can explore the different sections regarding our school prospectus, curriculum information, policies, class pages, current news, and parent and community links.  We hope you find our website enjoyable, accessible and useful.

Mrs A Donaghey

Our Aim at Oakgrove

At Oakgrove Integrated Primary School and Nursery our purpose is learning together for life and celebrating diversity.  We aim to provide child centred education in an integrated environment, where families and the wider community are involved.  We are an integrated learning community which seeks to learn together, of and from one another, regardless of creed, race, gender or ability.

At Oakgrove we are keen to challenge our children and staff and the rest of our school community.  We have an ethos, within the school where we embrace difference and celebrate diversity.  Exposure to as a wide a variety of experiences and challenges is what helps children, staff, families and ultimately our communities to grow.  As an integrated school, a school which teaches children of all creeds, race, gender and ability, we want to lead the way for education in Northern Ireland.  Only 7% of the population are educated in integrated schools in Northern Ireland.  As an integrated school we want to challenge this, on a local and global level. 

Integration at Oakgrove

Integration at Oakgrove

There are times in our school life that integration all comes together and gives us a reason to celebrate being an Integrated Primary School.  During this year we have celebrated and remembered with a number of different faiths and cultures.  We have held a Remembrance Day Assembly, celebrate Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, Eid al-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid, which is the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar, Chinese New Year and St Patrick's Day. 

We held our Harvest Service in Ebrington Presbyterian Church and our Carol Service in All Saint's Church, Clooney.  We celebrated our Service of Light and Enrolment, for the Roman Catholic children who are making their Sacraments this year, in St Columb's Church, Chapel Road, our Confirmation, in St Oliver Plunkett's Church, Strathfoyle and our Sacrament of Reconciliation in St Columb's Church. 

We also proudly hosted the Communities in Dialogue Event, which welcomed community representatives, politicians, school representatives from both secondary and primary schools, Parents' Group members, our school pupils, as well as community leaders.

Every Thursday, we welcome members of the local clergy who lead us in our assemblies.  We welcome Rev. P. Linkens from Ebrington Presbyterian Church, Fr. S. O'Donnell from the Waterside Parish (Roman Catholic), Rev. D. McBeth from All Saint's Church Clooney (Church of Ireland) and Rev. P. Murray from Clooney Methodist.
