Foirgneamh úrnua do Ghaelscoil Chluain Meala ag oscailt den chéad uair

Osclaíodh foirgneamh nua Gaelscoil Chluain Meala inné ag Paidí Ó Lionáird ó TG4. Is scoil de chuid An Fhorais Phátrúnachta í atá lonnaithe sa Bhaile Gaelach i gCluain Meala.  Tá an fhoirgneamh nua feistithe le réimse leathan áiseanna den chéad scoth.

Ag labhairt linn inné, dúirt Karen Mhic Gearailt, príomhoide na scoile “Tá lúcháir orainn go bhfuil doirse ár bhfoirgneamh scoile úrnua oscailte faoi dheireadh againn. Seo mar thoradh ar 27 bliana d’obair mhór na dtuismitheoirí, na foirne, an Bhoird Bainistíochta agus ár bpátrún, An Foras Pátrúnachta. Is ábhar misnigh é go bhfuil an Ghaeilge ag fás léi sa cheantar seo, agus go bhfuil an oiread sin daltaí ag foghlaim trí Ghaeilge le chéile. Táimid ag tnúth le fáilte a chur roimh go leor teaghlach nua inár scoil nua.”

Bhí an ghaelscoil lonnaithe i gcóiríocht shealadach ó 1994. Taistealaíonn  daltaí ó chúig pharóiste dhéag chun oideachas a fháil trí mheán na Gaeilge i nGaelscoil Chluain Meala.. Ag labhairt ann inniu, dúirt Caoimhín Ó hEaghra, Ard-Rúnaí An Fhorais Phátrúnachta: “Tá an t-éileamh ar an ngaelscolaíocht ag fás i gcónaí. Freastalóidh an foirgneamh nua seo ar an bhfás ar an ngaelscolaíocht go háitiúil. Tuigeann tuismitheoirí níos mó ná riamh na buntáistí breise a chuireann an tumoideachas ar fáil – éiríonn níos fearr le daltaí go hacadúil, bíonn sé níos fusa an tríú teanga a fhoghlaim agus baineann siad leas as deiseanna fostaíochta níos fearr. Tá ríméad orainn tús a chur leis an gcaibidil nua seo i nGaelscoil Chluain Meala. Tá scoileanna faoin bhForas ag cur oideachais ar 17,000 dalta agus tá ár scoileanna oscailte do chách. Tá sé mar aidhm againn oideachas den scoth trí Ghaeilge a chur ar fáil do gach páiste in Éirinn atá á iarraidh.”

09/11/16 Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige to move to Notre Dame

PRESS RELEASE

 

Wednesday, 9th November 2016

 

New multi-denominational Gaelscoil to move into Notre Dame premises

 

Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige, Ireland’s newest Irish-medium primary school is set to move into the premises being vacated by the closing of Notre Dame private school in Churchtown, Dublin 14.

 

The Department of Education confirmed that Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige will take long-term occupancy of the building by September 2018 at the latest.

 

The co-educational and multi-denominational gaelscoil opened in September 2016 after a competitive patronage selection process, and has been temporarily based in Clonskeagh. Speaking today, Caoimhín O’hEaghra, General Secretary of An Foras Pátrúnachta, the school’s patron said: "This site is a perfect fit for Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige. The facilities are second to none and we are fortunate to have a first class team in place in the school. We would like to sincerely thank all of the parents in the area who supported our campaign.

 

‘‘We are delighted to provide diversity and choice for parents. In South Dublin alone we have recently opened multi-denominational gaelscoileanna in Rathfarnham, Firhouse, Ballyogan and now Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige which will move to its new home in Churchtown. Our aim is provide Irish-medium education to every child who wants it, and we look forward to welcoming students to Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige for many years to come.’’

 

Principal, Aisling Uí Fhéich, welcomed the announcement saying: “This gaelscoil is open to everyone, and we look forward to welcoming children from different nationalities and backgrounds to Gaelscoil na Fuinseoige. The benefits of immersion education are well documented – students perform better academically, find it easier to learn a third and fourth language and also recent research indicates that students learning through Irish are achieving higher results in English and Maths.

 

“This premises has a long history of excellent education provision in this region and we are delighted to continue to provide the highest standards to our own students”.

 

Demand for Irish-medium education in South Dublin is huge with over 2,000 children being turned away every year from the existing schools. An Foras Pátrúnachta is currently campaigning to establish a multi-denominational gaelscoil in Dún Laoghaire in 2017.

 

Caoimhín O’hEaghra added: “It is vital all parents in the area interested in having their children educated in a multi-denominational gaelscoil register their interest here: www.gaelscoileanna.ie/dunlaoghaire. This will help us to demonstrate the demand for Irish-medium multi-denominational education in Dún Laoghaire and strengthen our application to the Department of Education.”
