Mr H. E. McCarthy MSc BSc BA
from our Principal
Welcome to our web site!
I hope you will find it interesting and informative. It reflects the many positive aspects of life in our school and will give you the opportunity to see life here through the eyes of the pupils.
To treat all pupils as we would want our own children treated, and to treat each child as an individual with individual needs and qualities and all that that implies.
To do this we:
provide individual support and nurturing
use differentiated teaching methods to stretch the gifted pupil and support the weaker
provide a personal career action plan to motivate each pupil
use a merit/reward system to encourage good behaviour
offer a wide range of sporting and extra curricular activities
provide a caring, happy environment in which young people may develop their full potential
To keep Killicomaine Junior High School at the forefront of educational development, not only in the established subject areas, but also in developing areas such as Educational Technology and Information Communication Technology, giving our pupils a grounding in academic, extra-curricular and sporting fields, which will propel them with confidence into their future lives.
