Thank you for visiting our website. In Gaelscoil Cholmcille we are passionate about what we do. The happiness and development of each student in our school is to the fore in all we do. Our students benefit not just from immersion education but an energetic and positive learning environment too. Thanks are due in no small part to the staff, parents and community without whom we would not be the vibrant school community we are today. Our school is open to all children and our campaign to grow to a 16 classroom school is afoot. Onwards and upwards!

Our school has a comprehensive COVID19 policy in place in line with guidelines from the HSE and the Department of Education. The children wash their hands frequently throughout the school day, classes are taught outside every day and CO2 monitors are in place to monitor effective ventilation. There is an emphasis on cleaning and sanitising in the school to ensure a safe and hygienic environment for all our pupils and staff. Check the latest updates on guidelines here: https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/covid19/symptoms/

We are selling Christmas cards designed by the children in every class as a fundraiser for the school this year. The cards come in packets of 10 and are priced at €10 each. Payment through the Aladdin system.
New School Campaign
Now in our 25th year, Gaelscoil Cholmcille has yet to be provided with a permanent school building. Our demand is simple – a 16 classroom permanent school to cater for the needs of our students and local community. Having met directly with Minister Bruton TD, the Department of Education and Skills have undertaken a study of the area and projected demographics. We hope to receive positive news soon.
