Scoil Spreagtha

We are delighted to announce that we are one of the chosen schools to take part in the brand new accredited scheme ‘Scoil Spreagtha’.

‘Scoil Spreagtha’ is an accredited scheme to recognise and celebrate efforts made by English-medium schools to encourage the use of Irish in the school environment. ‘Scoil Spreagtha’ in its design aims to inspire schools to showcase and expand their efforts to promote the use of Irish in the school setting.

‘Scoil Spreagtha’ is the most substantial scheme for the promotion of languages in NI’s education system since the termination of the Primary Modern Languages Programme in 2015. Running from November 2023 to June 2024, we aim to develop the use of the language in the daily life of our school.

Cuireann sé gliondar ar ár gcroithe insint daoibh gur roghnaíodh muid le bheith ar scoil de na scoileanna a bheas páirteach sa scéim chreidiúnaithe úr ‘Scoil Spreagtha’.

Beidh ‘Scoil Spreagtha’ ina scéim chreidiúnaithe agus cheiliúrtha a spreagfaidh na hiarrachtaí sin i scoileanna lán-Bhéarla úsáid na Gaeilge a chothú i dtimpeallacht na scoile. Forbraíodh ‘Scoil Spreagtha’ ar an chuspóir go mbeadh an scéim ina hinspioráid ag scoileanna a n-iarrachtaí ár dteanga dhúchais a chur chun cinn i suíomh na scoile a léiriú agus a mhéadú.

Tá ‘Scoil Spreagtha’ ar an scéim is mó agus is tábhachtaí i gcur chun cinn na dteangacha ó thuaidh ó cuireadh stop leis an scéim ‘Primary Modern Languages’ i 2015. Ag rith ó mhí na Samhna 2023 go mí an Mheithimh 2024, tá muid ag iarraidh Gaeilge a úsáid agus a dul chun cinn tríd an lae inár scoil.
