Families First Awards

Rosetta Primary School was a finalist in the Families First Awards. (January 2021) These comments are just a flavour of what parents said...

My daughter has been attending Open Nights at post primary schools and she said, 'None of these schools feel quite like home... not the way Rosetta feels like home.' That, for me, sums up Rosetta. If you're there... you're home...and you belong.  

'This school is amazing. The teachers are all very understanding and approachable for parents and pupils.

This school caters for the child, not the other way around. It's a great school where the teachers go the extra mile.

We have so appreciated the friendly, welcoming and diverse community of Rosetta Primary School. The staff are approachable, hardworking and really want the best for the children. Thank you!

We love Rosetta because it has the feel of a country school in the city. Class sizes are perfect and all abilities are given every chance to pursue their strengths. Our kids have been nurtured but also allowed to express their own views and ideas.

A strong ethos in nurturing and developing children. A lovely school.

As a black minority family here in Northern Ireland, Rosetta Primary School has been so welcoming to my family. We feel very much included as part of the diverse school community and school life.

I believe Rosetta has a very warm welcome to all different kinds of people. they are very accepting of different religions and cultures and aren't afraid to try new things. All staff are very friendly and understanding too.

Rosetta Primary is like part of our extended family. The staff care so much about the wellbeing of our girls and are always available to help out no matter what the issue or need.

My son is in P7 and he has loved every minute of his time here. He has always been supported and encouraged to do his best during his time here. He has felt safe and able to go to any teacher with any problems he has encountered and has been supported in every way possible. I highly recommend Rosetta to all my friends.

Rosetta provides more than a learning environment for children, it's like a village school in the city. It's caring and welcomes diversity in all its forms. Teachers recognise that children benefit from opportunities to take responsibility and want the chance to shine. Children are encouraged to meet their potential and to show kindness, and that their views matter.




Choir at Christmas

Well done to the Junior and Senior Choirs who performed some Christmas carols and festive songs in the Mount Oriel Day Centre this week. Many thanks to Mrs. A. Moore, her team at the day centre and her daughter Kimberley from P3/4 H, for organising such a special event within our local community. The children sang beautifully and had so much fun!

Primary 6 Delamont Trip 2019

We were able to take part in archery, canoeing, rock climbing, a nightline walk and an incredible adventure walk in Tollymore Forest Park. A massive thank you to Mrs Johnston for organising the trip and all the members of staff for supervising the trip! Well done to all the children who took part and made the trip a great success!
