Our School


Dundela Infants’ School is situated on a spacious and pleasant site between Dundela Avenue and Wilgar Street. It was purpose built as an Infants’ School in 1978 and caters for children in the P1-P3 age range. There is also a Nursery Unit which is an integral part of the school. Dundela is one of three feeder schools to Strandtown Primary School.

The buildings consist of the following:

Nursery Unit with 2 classrooms, quiet rooms and utility room/kitchen
3 Infant Units – each unit has 3 classrooms which open into a shared resource and play area
Assembly / Dining Hall
School Meals Kitchen

The nursery classes each accommodate 26 children and the P1-P3 classes can accommodate a maximum of 28 children.

A wide and balanced child-centred curriculum is provided both indoors and outdoors, by a dedicated team who work hard to ensure that the children learn and grow in a supportive and caring environment.

The school, individual classrooms and year group resource areas are well equipped, with much emphasis placed on structured experiences and activity based learning.Our qualified Forest-School practitioners ensure there are excellent opportunities for outdoor learning within our extensive school grounds. Our recently developed outdoor learning areas include an outdoor classroom, trim trail, water wall, music area, construction site, nature area and mud kitchen.

We are extremely proud of Dundela and our reputation for being a very happy school where each child is encouraged to develop his/her potential - or as our pupils would say, " be the best you can be". Our welcoming and inclusive ethos has been achieved through good relationships between staff, pupils, parents and the wider community.
