Info for Parents

A new school in Blackrock! An Foras Pátrúnachta are opening a new multi-denominational Gaelscoil in September 2019, offering parents a great new choice. See further information below.

Why choose a new Gaelscoil?

Location

Our school will open on Kill Lane, Deansgrange this September.
The permanent location will be confirmed by the Dept. of Education in September 2019.

Our staff

We are delighted to have Príomhoide Aoife appointed as Principal. Her extensive experience and love of Irish culture will be a great asset to the school.
The school will open with Junior infants only. We appoint our second teacher at 18 students. This means a maximum pupil teacher ratio of 17:1 – a hugely valuable resource for your child as they begin their journey with us.

We will recruit our learning support teacher and secretary this summer.

Registration for 2019

Late registration is now open for Junior Infants 2019 only. Therefore, registration for later years will open after Halloween 2019.

We hope to be able to cater for everyone who would like a place but cannot guarantee this. However, we do not use a catchment area.
