Helm Housings generous donation to Rathcoole Primary School and Nursery Unitโ€‹

ย 


The local community in Rathcoole came together today to welcome new residents at the handover of a new general needs housing development in Deerfin Park by Helm Housing for social housing.


Local school children and staff from nearby Rathcoole Primary and Nursery School were on hand to take part in the planting of bushes in a small landscaped area to mark the occasion. While helping with the finishing touches to the development, the school also received a cheque for ยฃ1,000, donated by Helm Housing and Donaghmore Construction Ltd who carried out the work on the new development.


Speaking at the handover of the new homes, Sean Madden, Senior Development Officer at Helm Housing said:
โ€œWeโ€™reย very pleased that Helm Housing has been able to make a donation, along with our construction partners, Donaghmore Construction Ltd, to the Rathcoole Primary School development fund. It is important to us that we make a positive contribution to the whole community and we hope these funds will go some way to improving the environment of the school for the enjoyment of all current and future pupils.โ€


Receiving the cheque on behalf of Rathcoole Primary and Nursery School was Principal Mrs Quinn, who added:
โ€œOur school plans to build an innovative new play area to the front of the building, made using recycled materials and including an area where students can grow their own vegetables. The playground will be designed by none other than our own students and weโ€™ve received a number of excellent designs already. We are very grateful to both Helm Housing and Donaghmore Construction for their generous donation which will help us make this a reality.โ€

Our Nurture Journey

Still image for this video
Congratulations Rathcoole Primary School!!!!

Rathcoole is now one of only five Primary Schools in Northern Ireland to have received the Marjorie Boxall Quality Award from the UK national accrediting body, the Nurture Group Network. Receipt of the award requires that the schoolโ€™s Nurture Group is operating to the highest possible standards but also looks closely at how nurturing principles are being applied across the school, so while the Nurture Group can remain focused on those children most in need of its support, every pupil can benefit.

We would like to say a big thank you to parents and pupils who agreed to feature in our 'Nurture Journey' video and give us an insight into their fantastic experiences of the Rainbow Room.
