Scoil Raifteirí now enrolling for September 2011

March 11, 2011

Scoil Raifteirí is an All-Irish primary school situated on the Fairgreen in Castlebar.

The school provides an excellent education suitable for children between the ages of four and 12 in a natural, friendly, and stimulating atmosphere. The young teaching staff are fully qualified and committed to meet the educational, cultural, and individual needs of the children entrusted in their care. The children are treated with fairness, firmness, dignity, and understanding. They learn to know, value, and enjoy Irish language and heritage through dance, music, song, drama, story-telling, art, and poetry. High standards of fluency and competence, both in English and Irish, are attained. A good solid foundation in all subjects is offered in the progressive and wide-ranging curriculum.

It is not essential for parents themselves to speak Irish fluently when their children attend an Irish school but they will learn Irish as their children progress.  Homework tasks are prepared and concepts learned in class are revisited at home enabling children to complete homework independently. Children learn how to speak Irish effortlessly in a happy learning environment. Their fluency in the language will give them the confidence to excel in their oral Irish examination in the Leaving certificate.  Scoil Raifteirí is now taking applications for junior infants for September 2011 and the following years 2012/2013/2014.  There will be an open/registration day on Monday March 14 from 10am to 1pm.
