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 Most Peculiar Wintry Thing

Senior Infants were very excited to go to The Ark today to see ‘A Most Peculiar Wintry Thing’. It was a musical theatre production about all things wintry. It had some interesting characters like the brussel sprout monster and the abominable snowman! We loved joining in the singing and listening to and telling jokes at the end of the performance. 

EU Code Week

Following on from EU Code Week, Central Model Infants’ School decided to give coding a try using our programmable toys, BeeBots! 

BeeBot sometimes like to pretend he’s a secret agent. He needs to be able to write and decipher secret codes in order to complete his missions. The children in Senior Infants and 1st Class had a great time writing and following codes for BeeBot. Have a look at us coding below:
