What is meant by Immersion Education?

Immersion Education is the system of language learning that your child experiences in a Gaelscoil.

Your child will acquire the Irish language in a natural setting at school by engaging in the following teaching and learning methodologies.

  • Rhymes, stories and songs.
  • Drama and role-play activities.
  • Communicative language games.
  • Sporting activities and structured free play.
  • Learning phrases and language function in a thematic context.
  • Interaction with the teacher, children and visitors to the school with Irish.
