Welcome all to our school website, designed and put together by the senior students of Scoil Chroí Íosa. I am privileged to be principal of such a great and traditional school. There is a wealth of experience among our caring staff who work hard every day to ensure the children of Scoil Chroí Íosa get the very best opportunity to fulfil their potential.

 

Our pupils learn through exploring, investigating, researching and collaborating. We use a variety of methodologies to teach and learn such as team-teaching, use of ICT including interactive whiteboards, group and peer work, shared reading with parents and we even get our hands dirty by working in our award winning organic school garden.

 

We place huge emphasis on the importance of attendance, participation and retention and we firmly believe that strong links between the home, the school and the community are vital in providing a holistic approach to education. Through our many extra curricular activities ranging from sports clubs to homework clubs to web design etc we endeavour to foster a sense of independence and strike a healthy balance between work and play.
