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.

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!

Assembly 27th February 2015

We had a special assembly in the Central Model Infants’ School this morning as we had a visitor from the Green Schools to look at all our lovely Eco-friendly travel inventions. Over the past week the children from Senior Infants and First Class have worked extremely hard at designing and constructing vehicles that would enable them to travel to school in an environmentally friendly way, while the Junior Infants designed their own travel tickets. The finished vehicles and travel tickets looked fantastic on display in the hall this morning. We are so lucky to have such imaginative and creative children in the school. Mrs. Groves and Ms. O’ Connell had the very difficult task of selecting a winner from each year group but after much deliberation the winners were chosen. The winner from Senior Infants was “The Hatticopter” designed by pupils from Room 3 and the winner from First Class was “The Flower Power Airplane” which was created by pupils from the Treehouse. A huge congratulations to all of the pupils!!

We must also mention the Pupils of the Week who are doing such great and wonderful work for their class teachers.  It was wonderful to hear that the teachers were delighted and full of praise for the Pupils of the Week!! Keep up the excellent effort and we wonder who will be pupil of the week next Friday?! 

Ms. Lyons and Room 2 did a lovely performance of the Safe Cross Code. The children appeared to really enjoy singing the song! Well done to Ms. Lyons and Room 2.
