Presentation Primary School Waterford

A great tradition of education in Waterford since 1798

We are a School of Sanctuary!

We are a School of Sanctuary! On  February 21st 2024, we became the first primary school in Waterford to be recognized as a School of Sanctuary! We are so proud of our wonderful school community.

A school of sanctuary is a place that is safe, welcoming and inclusive for all, but especially for those who are seeking refuge, or those that are most in need.

The day began with a school assembly where we celebrated our special school community, our own little world. Our SoS ambassadors chose some special gifts that they felt represented our school and shared the meaning behind them. We heard two beautiful songs from our wonderful Peace Proms choir & some gorgeous poems from our students. We finished the assembly with our school song ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’.

Our SoS ambassadors showed our visitors around the wonderful displays in our school hall & then took them on a tour around the school. We then brought our visitors to visit some of our classes, to hear what makes our school so special.

The visitors commented on the wonderful atmosphere in our school and how truly special the students were!
