Minister for Education & Skills visits Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh

The Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh TD, visited Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh on Friday, 22 February to view the site for the new school campus on Clare Street in Limerick. The Minister was welcomed by Senator Maria Byrne, chair of the school’s Board of Management, George O’Callaghan, Chief Executive of the school’s patron Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, and Donncha Ó Treasaigh, Principal of Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh.

Demolition works to prepare for construction were completed in recent weeks on the Kerry Group site on Clare Street. An application for planning permission to construct the new 750-student campus is close to being completed.

Speaking during the Minister’s visit, Senator Maria Byrne said: “The Board of Management is extremely proud of the exemplary reputation that Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh students and staff have for contributing to an excellent learning environment, which is known all over the country as a highly innovative and creative school.”

Welcoming the Minister to the site of the new school campus, George O’Callaghan said: “Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board looks forward to the next phase of the development of the site here in Clare Street. The new school building will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the students and staff of Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh. The modern architectural design of the new school will provide a fitting backdrop to the excellent educational reputation that the Gaelcholáiste has earned and the new building will further enhance the already high standards of excellence for which the school is renowned.”`

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh Principal Donncha Ó Treasaigh outlined the history of the school to the Minister and how it has grown rapidly to become the largest all-Irish post- primary school in Ireland. He said: “Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh is renowned for its very successful and advanced integration of technology into all subjects and classes, having been the first school in Ireland to be recognised by technology giant Apple as an Apple Distinguished School. The school has also been to the fore in being selected by the Department of Education and Skills as a pilot school for a number of newly-launched Leaving Certificate subjects, including Politics and Society and Physical Education.”

Pupils from Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh play for local GAA teams in Hurling, Football and Camogie, and several students are member of Irish sporting squads in soccer and basketball.

A considerable number of our pupils are also involved in the European Youth Parliament and have spoken in the Houses of the Oireachtas.

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh student to deliver TED-Ed Club

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh student to deliver TED-Ed Club presentation in Mansion House to mark 100th anniversary of First Dáil

Topic: Why alcohol is a danger to our society

Fifteen students who were selected in a nationwide competition will deliver TED-Ed Club presentations at the Mansion House on Tuesday, January 22, as part of the Houses of the Oireachtas programme commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First Dáil.

Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh is delighted that one of its Fifth Year pupils, Megan Ní Laighin, has been selected for this special occasion.

The students, all aged 16 to 17, have spent many hours preparing their presentations as part of 13 TED-Ed Club lessons, formally known as explorations, under the guidance of their teachers and Parliamentary Education Officer Conor Reale.

The presentations begin at 1 p.m. in the Round Room of the Mansion House, the venue for the first public sitting of Dáil Éireann on 21 January 1919.

Following the event, the students’ presentations will be available for viewing on the TED-Ed Clubs channel on YouTube and on Oireachtas TV.

Their chosen topics include the power of democracy, the impact of social media and mobile phones, challenges in mental health services, coping with stress, sexual identity, and the relevance of education in the real world. Two speakers will make their presentations in Irish.

“The calibre of the students’ presentations is simply outstanding and will be inspiring to all those who hear them. These are brave, empathetic, intelligent and insightful young people with powerful messages,” said Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl TD. “There can be no better way to commemorate the first hundred years of Dáil Éireann than to highlight voices of future leadership in our country as these students surely represent.”

An Scoil Nua

We are delighted to see demolition work has commenced on the site of our new future campus on Clare Street.

Kelly Bros. moved heavy demolition equipment onto the site this morning and several of the smaller buildings have been dismantled already.

We are looking forward to seeing the progress over the next four weeks when demolition is expected to be completed.

It is also highly admirable and commendable that the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board (LCETB) is developing a large post primary school at this city centre location.
