September 15 and 16 saw Gaelscoil an Chuilinn, Dublin 15’s newest Gaelscoil celebrate its tenth anniversary!

The original founding committee along with local politicians, the school’s Board of Management and proud parents were treated to an amazing performance where the school choir and band did their parents and teachers proud.

Along with a puppet show, some magic, a castle and an ice cream van, students and attendees were treated to some entertainment by the students themselves.

A flag was raised and signage was unveiled highlighting some of the significant achievements of the school’s first ten years including 180 meter running track, five outdoor classrooms and a fully functioning theatre.

Gaelscoil an Chuilinn (above) opened its prefab doors a decade ago to 12 pupils and is now educating 300 of Dublin 15’s young Gaeilgeoirs in what has to be one of the country’s finest educational facilities.

Forty teachers and staff using the most modern high-tech technologies including individual iPads for pupils, coding and robotics equipment provide the highest possible standard of education in a modern, artistic and nurturing environment.

Principal Fergus Ó Conghaile and Deputy Principal Nóinín Ní Ghoill look forward to welcoming parents and pupils of D15 for many generations to come as Mark Craven Vice-Chairman of the school’s Board of Management said at the anniversary celebrations 

“I foresee only greatness for our future! We’re only 10 years into our journey and the possibilities are endless.  Future leaders of all kinds have been and will be educated here.”
