Our Schools/School Ethos

School Ethos

The Irish-language is central in all our schools as:

  • the spoken language of the school
  • the language of internal school communication and business
  • the language of teaching and learning in all subjects (except English)
  • the language of communication by the teachers, the students and all aspects of the school


Special School Spirit

An Foras Pátrúnachta offers parents a choice of four ethoses: Multi-denominational, Interdenominational, Intradenominational and Catholic to provide comprehensive options to parents/guardians who want Irish-medium education for their children, regardless of religious background.
