  Sligo Sudbury School is seeking one additional staff member for the 2024-25 school year. We are looking for passionate, hard-working individuals who deeply believe in self-directed education for children.  Staffing at Sligo Sudbury School is very different from working in other types of schools.

Hello everyone April has been a busy and beautiful month with plenty of sun shine and warm weather to keep our spirits high. The Drama club put on a fantastic performance of Appropriate Audience Behaviour, a play where the performers are the audience. The acting was mesmerising and hilarious and the “actual” audience were blown away by the talent. Many months of crochet work literally came together as students who had been working on individual patchwork squares started to put the gorgeous colourful sections together to create a magnificent blanket.

Education for a changing world.  A complete education can no longer be limited to the accumulation of knowledge and the development of some rudimentary academic skills. Children growing up today will need much more. 21st century students must not only be critical thinkers, self-motivated learners, competent problem-solvers, and life-long learners. They also must have well developed qualities of empathy, respect, cooperation, and collaboration.   Children today need an education system that supports initiative, fosters self-motivation, and provides each individual with freedom to ..read more

Gio What we’ve been doing. Hello everyone and Happy Springtime! The month of February began of course with Imbolc and Brigid’s Day, and the celebration of the arrival of spring. Weaving St. Brigid’s crosses quickly expanded into a number of new shapes as we played with the rushes and devised new patterns. Pancake Day marked another important celebration in Irish culture. While “Carnival” is celebrated in other parts of the world with masks, costumes, and parades, here in Ireland we satisfy ourselves with making a feast out of eggs, flour, sugar and milk (and a wild variety of toppings). We c ..read more

Hello everyone! It’s great to be back at school and to start this new year. Some of us missed school so much we began counting the number of sleeps before going back to school on the day after Christmas. We welcomed two new students this January and sadly said goodbye to one of our veteran students who left us this year to follow her dreams. We wish her every success in her endeavours. We have a new student intern joining us for this term. Nicole is studying Early Childhood Care & Education at ATU Sligo and will intern with us for 12 weeks to experience child-led learning in ..read more
