Teachtaireacht ón bPríomhoide / Message from the Principal


Sinéad Ní Thorsnaigh

Your child is unique. S/he possesses a sense of wonder and natural curiosity. Here in Gaelscoil Chluainín we aim to embrace and nurture that uniqueness and foster the ideals of  home. We strive to create an atmosphere of love, respect, honesty and fun every day. The school curriculum through its broad subject areas encompasses all of the above qualities.

As Principal, I strongly endorse our vision, “all children will receive a high standard of education through the medium of Irish in a safe, happy, organised and friendly environment. Everyone will be listened to and everyone will be given an opportunity to reach his/her potential.”  He/she will acquire the necessary skills in order to meet with confidence the challenges of our ever changing world.

It is you, the parents, who are the primary educators and you, who can encourage the building of self-esteem and self-worth from the beginning.  Your child’s closest personal, emotional and social ties are with you. The more you participate and show interest in the learning process, the more your child will benefit from their time in school.  The partnership between parents, teachers and children cannot be overstated. Ní neart go cur le chéile!

This website is intended to give you an insight into the life and workings of Gaelscoil Chluainín. It outlines what we stand for and coveys the broad, child centred education we offer you and your child.  However, no website can convey the real atmosphere of our school, hence, I invite you to arrange a visit to the school so that you can meet the staff, see the wonderful work and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our school at first hand.

Looking forward to meeting you and your child soon,
With sincere good wishes.
