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.




WE RAISED €631.58



 The school is currently working toward achieving our First Active Schools Flag. 


Thank you to all of our children, teachers, families and friends who came to Mountjoy Square to join in our fun run and cheers us on as we showcased our fitness and jogging skills.



 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!! 

Comórtas Ealaíne

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!

Room 3- Romania

Room 3 had a fabulous International week learning all about Romania. We looked at Romania on the map, ate Romania food , discovered lots of interesting facts about Romania and even sang a song in Romanian in assembly.

International Assembly 2015

On Friday we had the particularly special International Assembly in the Central Model Infants’ School. All classes had spent the last two weeks learning lots of lovely and interesting things about a particular country with their teachers and even some parents got involved. For example Room 8 learned a lot about Poland, while Room 3 learned about Romania. It was wonderful to hear so many facts about various countries around the world. Not only that but each class did a special performance piece originating from their chosen country! All the staff and parents present were amazed by the amount of work the children had put in. Well done to you all.

We must also mention our Pupils of the Week who have worked so hard for their teachers and the Swimmer of the Week, Sandro, who made a great effort during the swimming lesson.
