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.

What a busy couple of weeks the children in first class have had.  They had a great day out at the Helix to see the Cinderella Panto, visited the GPO where they posted their letters to Santa and sang some Christmas carols. 


Their Christmas play – “T’was the night before Christmas” was a great success. Thank you to everyone who came to see the performance.

Santa’s Visit 17.12.2014

Today we had a very special visitor to the school. Santa Claus himself came to visit all the boys and girls in the Central Model Infants’ School. The children couldn’t believe their eyes and they were absolutely delighted to see him. Santa Claus had heard that all the children had been very good throughout the year and left presents in every classroom!! As we all know it is a very busy time in the North Pole and unfortunately Santa Claus was not able to stay in the school too long. We hope that Santa Claus and everyone in the North Pole has a merry Christmas and that we see Santa Claus again next year!!
