Content and Language Learning Integrated (CLIL) Project.
Following an application process, were delighted to receive official letter on Thursday from the Minister of Education and Skills, Mr. Joe Mc Hugh, informing us that Scoil Réalt na Mara has been selected as 1 of 6 primary schools nationwide to participate in the pilot phase of the CLIL project.
The pilot phase of the project will focus on a total of 19 educational settings which include secondary, primary and early years settings.
CLIL is a 3 year pilot project to promote the use of Irish as a teaching medium within different subjects and contexts in the school setting and it is an approach that is very much in keeping with the ethos and approach already adopted in Scoil Réalt na Mara by parents, pupils and the school staff.
Year 1 will be a development phase focusing on the Professional Development needs of participating teachers, the development of resources and assessment tools.
We are really delighted to share this news with you and we thank you as parents and pupils for your continued support for the school ethos. We view this as a positive affirmation of all of our efforts to date to promote the natural and incidental use of Irish throughout the school, at home and beyond.
