Just this week, world-renowned educationalist, Tom Sherrington, published the ‘Learning Rainforest Fieldbook’. Featuring contributions from some great schools from all over the world, this book is a compilation of case studies which were written to showcase examples of good practice in terms of teaching and learning. Our new principal, Mr McCoy, was asked to write a chapter for the book. His chapter explains some of the excellent work he implemented in his previous school in relation ‘English Mastery’ and the introduction of a knowledge-rich curriculum. Speaking of the publication, Mr McCoy said that he was delighted to represent the knowledge-rich approach and said that he was very much looking forward to settling into Lurgan JHS following the half-term break.
