Pupils and teachers in Gaelscoil Thromaire have settled into our beautiful new school premises which features up-to-the minute architecture and facilities on a modern, child-friendly Campus.
Children in Gaelscoil Thromaire have the opportunity to go to school in an immersive, fully inclusive Irish language environment, which apart from the obvious advantages to the children when they go on to secondary school, has been demonstrated to benefit learning across the whole curriculum, as the child develops learning techniques and strategies when taught in a bilingual language environment.
Bilingual speakers have also been shown to be more flexible in their learning strategies and more effective at creative thinking, the benefits of which are self-explanatory as the child progresses through second and third-level education.
Children have opportunities to take part in a range of activities in Gaelscoil Thromaire including music lessons, Yoga, GAA and Fun Fitness. Among our projects for the upcoming school year will be to make use of the vast outdoor space to develop a school garden.
From September 2022 there will be a Naíonra (Irish language Playschool) and preschool/after school care commencing in our former school premises, less than a mile from the school.
As the school features a new resource room with computer access, and iPads in the infant classroom, Gaelscoil Thromaire is fully equipped and ready to help children develop their language abilities, and to provide the best possible preparation for life in secondary school.
