Welcome to our Web Site. I hope that you find it interesting. It contains some information about our school, the very special children who are educated within it, the staff who work here and the parents who daily entrust their children into our care and protection.
Ceara, like most special schools has a preschool section, a Primary section and a post primary section. Children attending the school are aged from three years to nineteen years.
Like all schools, Ceara is inspected by the Department for Education. Our last inspection described the school as "outstanding". In addition, Ceara was the first special school in the Province to attain the prestigious "Investors in Peoples" Award. We are proud of these achievements.
Mr Phillip Hawthorne chair of Lurgan Young at Heart Mens' group accompanied by Mr Jerome Mc Areavy and Mr Gerry O'Neill presented a cheque to Ceara of £500. The group raised the money at a bowling competition.
Maggie Fearon and David McIvor ran the Berlin Marathon and raised £400 which they donated to Ceara. They are pictured with classes 9 and 11.
School photos for all pupils will be taken on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th November.
On Thursday 8th October we celebrated Ceara schools first Prize Night. Pupils came to school to receive external accreditation worked for in school last year.
A lovely night was had by all.
