St. Mary’s CBS in conjunction with the Arts Council are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as one of 150 schools nationwide to be awarded the opportunity to engage with Scoileanna Ildánacha/Creative Schools initiative 2023-25. Applications were invited from schools in March 2023 and our proposed idea was successful in securing the award. 
Creative Schools is an initiative that aims to put the arts and creativity at the heart of children and young people’s lives. The school will be appointed a creative associate to help develop our proposal along with a very welcome investment of €4,000 towards the cost of implementing the project. 
We are so excited to embark on this journey and bring our entire school community together to celebrate our creative flare. Watch this space! @artscouncilireland @creativeschools #ArtsCouncilSupported #ArtsIreland #fromeachtheirbest
