Ashbourne Community National School

Goodness Me, Goodness You!

The Goodness Me, Goodness You! (GMGY) curriculum is the patron’s curriculum for Community National Schools. GMGY has been in development since 2008 and evolves as the school evolves. The GMGY curriculum is a crucial part of Community National School life.

Community National Schools (CNS) seek to nurture the development of the whole child by developing all dimension of the family and community life including among others their beliefs and religions. Through GMGY! children get the opportunity to express their whole self during the school day.

The curriculum recognises and supports the parents role as the primary educators in their child’s beliefs and traditions through encouraging the creation of a respectful and inclusive learning community where their child’s beliefs are valued.

Goodness Me, Goodness You! enables children to live a full life as a child and to realise their potential as a unique individual. To develop as a social being through living and communication with others and so contribute to the good of society. To prepare for further and lifelong learning. To be nurtured in their beliefs and values within the educational context of the school as an intrinsic part of their living to the full, with the help of their family.
