"English Every Day and Everywhere"
Kevin D'Arcy

We work each day towards ensuring that each child in our school reaches their highest level of learning possible. In order to achieve this, we do much more than the basic programme (Podstawa Programowa). Additionally we support each child in developing skills in: Critical thinking, language development, physical development and musical development. One of my many inspirations comes from an Educational Psychologist, Benjamin Bloom.
