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 have Assembly each Friday where we celebrate learning, sing songs and children are awarded certificates for their outstanding achievements during the week. Click on the Stars to see our Pupils of the Week.
As part of the Travel Flag the children from First Class are investigating the different types of environmental friendly transport. Last week we took a field trip on the Luas to explore and experience this type of transport. We then welcomed Eamon, Sinead and Giselle from the Luas to talk about how to safely use the Luas. We were reminded when using the Luas to:
- Always stand behind the white line on the platform.
- To let the people off before getting on.
- Not to go on or get off the Luas when the doors are closing.
- To hold onto the handrails when on the Luas.
- To show respect to other passengers.
As part of the Travel Flag the children from First Class are investigating the different types of environmental friendly transport. Last week we took a field trip on the Luas to Collins Barracks to explore and experience this type of transport. Overall the children very much enjoyed their experience on the Luas. Collins Barracks was also very interesting. It was built as an old army barracks in 1702 and today it is a museum. Inside the museum we looked at the different types of army equipment from 1704 to the present day. The children also had an opportunity to wear army uniforms from the past. Outside the Museum the children marched around the large marching square and then had great fun running up and down the square.
