Best of luck to SAOL Chris­tian School

Drogheda Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THERE is a new kid in town when it comes to ed­u­ca­tion in Drogheda.

The SAOL Chris­tian School opened in Septem­ber with Pa­tron and prin­ci­pal Sharon Reilly at the helm.

With fel­low teacher, Charissa Huck­field, they op­er­ate out of a su­perb look­ing premises on the North Strand.

Sharon has al­most ten years pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in a Chris­tian School in Ire­land and de­cided to open a Chris­tian School in her home town. In 2017 she de­cided to start work­ing on the found­ing of SAOL (Ir­ish for “LIFE”) Chris­tian School.

At SAOL , they do not use the Ir­ish Na­tional Cur­ricu­lum. In­stead they of­fer stu­dents the A.C.E. (Ac­cel­er­ated Chris­tian Ed­u­ca­tion) pro­gramme.

Stu­dents work at their own rate and level.

The school pol­icy states: ‘It is our aim to pro­vide an ed­u­ca­tion pack­age for the whole per­son which will lead to suc­cess aca­dem­i­cally, spir­i­tu­ally, phys­i­cally, emo­tion­ally, so­cially, and even eco­nom­i­cally.

‘It is our hope that our stu­dents will grow to be peo­ple who are able to con­trib­ute in works of ser­vice to the church and to the world. They should be able to spread the gospel and take their place in church and civil life.’

It is a pri­vate school, but they hope to build up their funds to build their own school in the fu­ture.
