Early immersion education
We adopt a full early immersion education policy in school. This means that English is not taught until the second term in Senior Infants. The children are spoken to in Irish only, from the first day of school. This is done to ensure that Irish is the communicative language of the school and to enable them to contend with the entire school curriculum through Irish. Early full immersion is recognised worldwide as the most effective way to teach a language to children.
