Our whole school community is delighted and proud that Francis St. C.B.S. has become one of only 5 schools in Ireland to receive a Changemaker Award from Ashoka Ireland. Changemaker Schools aspire to create a world where children become empathetic leaders capable of working creatively to solve problems and drive change in the world. Ashoka works with these schools to support them alongside businesses, social entrepreneurs, universities, media and across other sectors. We were chosen due to much of the work we do in our school to promote positive mental health, our links with our community, our innovative approaches to Education and our long standing and very well established Student Council.
