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.

 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!

Kando Arts Magic Show 24th April 2015

Today we had a very special visitor in Central Model Infants’ School. Kelvin from Kando Arts came to our school and performed a special magic show for us. The magic show was somewhat unusual as it was all about recycling and how everyone can care for the environment. The teachers and all the pupils really enjoyed the magic show and they certainly learned a lot too :) . We would like to thank Kelvin for coming to our school and teaching us about recycling in a really entertaining way. 

There was a brief assembly today after lunchtime which took place on the yard. We would like to congratulate the Pupils of the Week for all their hard work in school this week! We must also mention the Swimmers of the Week, Lennon and Swarup, who made tremendous efforts during their swimming lesson this week. Well done boys!

Easter Assembly 27.03.15

What a wonderful assembly we had this morning in Central Model Infants’ School. Congratulations to all our Pupils of the Week, many of whom have made great efforts for their teachers since the beginning of the school year! It was lovely to see how proud the children were to be awarded Pupil of the Week in their respective classrooms. 

Room 7 had the opportunity to perform on the stage for us this week. The Mrs. Beakey and the children sang two lovely songs for us and appeared to really enjoy performing in front of the whole school. Well done to Room 7.

Today’s assembly was extra special as Mrs. Groves and Valerie had organised a big basket full of yummy Easter eggs to be raffled off between the classes. We are delighted to announce that there was a winner from each class in the school!! We hope that everybody has a lovely Easter and we look forward to seeing you all after the Easter holidays.
