Welcome to the Central Model Infants’ School
Central Model Infants’ School was established in 1859. It is an Infant school comprising Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Classes under the patronage of the Minister for Education and Skills.
The Central Model Infants’ School is an inclusive, child centred Learning Community. Respectful relationships are fundamental to us. We achieve excellence through high expectations, teamwork and shared leadership. We aim to nourish and develop each child’s sense of their own self-worth as an individual and celebrate their unique gifts and talents.
Each class has been busy getting active. We have been running 100 metre laps of our yard each week and have been improving our fitness.
Please join your child’s class in Mountjoy Square Park on Tuesday 28th April 2015 as they showcase their fitness and jogging skills. We hope you can join in the fun and run some laps or cheer us on.

Seachtain na Gaeilge
We had a very special and exciting week in Central Model Infants’ School as we celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge and St. Patrick’s Day! All the children looked wonderful dressed in green and some even had their faces painted!!
All the classes took part in an Art Competition and a winner was picked from each classroom. It was a very tough decision but a winner was eventually picked from each class and the winners are *drum roll*….
Chan na daltaí agus na múinteoirí amhráin agus sheinn siad an fhéadóg stain chomh maith. Bhí deis ag gach seomra píosa beag Gaeilge a dhéanamh os comhair na scoile. Bhí sé iontach amhráin, filíocht agus comhrá a chloisteáil as Gaeilge. (The children and teachers sang songs and played the tin whistle. Every class had a chance to perform a poem or song in Irish. It was wonderful to hear all of the Irish songs and conversations)
Today was an extra special day for all of us. The Minister for Education, Jan O’Sullivan, came to our school. She was able to do W.O.W. (Walk on Wednesday) because her office is really close to our school. She presented us with the
Digital School of Distinction Award
First class told her about Twitter and she said she got the tweet from Ms Wimsey. They also played their tin whistles beautifully and did a superb “Beebots” demonstration. Ms Martyn dressed as a Beebot and Ms Rafferty said there was a great buzz (do you get it?) in the hall.
Senior Infants explained how we use Ipads in our learning, even for Gaeilge. Maith an cailín Ellen!
The Minister loved our Digital Happy song. And happy days…..Daithí, our Chairperson, decided we all should have golden time and a treat today.
Tá áthas an domhain orainn!
We are really happy and proud of this award!
