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.



A big thank you to the parents, pupils and staff of the Central Model Schools for your generous donations. Together we raised €1,318.44 for the local house fire family!

Assembly 16th January 2015

Congratulations to all our Pupils of the Week who have worked very hard for their teachers since coming back to school after the Christmas holidays. Our Swimmer of the Week was Brandon from Room 5 who made a great effort during the swimming lesson this week. The swimming instructor was absolutely delighted with him! Maith thú Brandon. It was Room 4′s chance to perform at assembly this week. All children showed us their lovely work about growing up and what they wanted to be when they are older. Not only that but they also sang a wonderful song about growing up, complete with actions!! Everyone really enjoyed their energetic and fun song! Well done Room 4. We had lots of birthdays this week, including three of our teachers. We would like to wish the children and teachers celebrating their birthdays a very happy birthday!

Assembly Friday 9th January 2015

Welcome back and Happy New Year to everyone in Central Model Infants’ School! We started 2015 off with a bang in Assembly this morning, with some model students setting a fantastic example for everyone in CMIS. Our Super Green Human Being this week was Emily from Room 5, who took her job very seriously when it came to picking up litter in our yard this week.

As part of our Green Schools strategy for Travel, all children in the school are encouraged to Walk on Wednesdays. This means walking to school or taking public transport and leaving the car at home where possible. The class with the most children to walk to school this week was Room 1. They won themselves a Free Homework Pass and will be proud holders of ‘The Golden Boot’ until next Friday!
Ms Healy also presented attendance badges to children who had 100% attendance in school last term. There were some very proud children today who have missed no days in school since September. But the good news is that any children who didn’t get a badge today have another chance if they miss no days between now and the Easter holidays!
Finally, the lucky boys, girls (and teacher!) who celebrated birthdays today had ‘Happy Birthday’ played to them on the tin whistle by the very talented Hao Chen from Room 5! It was the perfect end to the first assembly of the New Year as another very talented young lady, Emily, played us out on the keyboard. Ms King better watch out!
