As our projects have developed, ‘the whole has become greater than the sum of its parts’. Finaghy Campus has now gained local, national and international interest as a ‘full-service extended school’. Increasing numbers of children are dropped off for breakfast and picked up again when parents are returning from work. Many now return in the evenings and at weekends to avail of the SportsZone, Public Library and programmes that run in the school building.
