Gaelscoil Gach Scoil

Gael-Taca are in the midst of a new campaign, in cooperation with Conradh na Gaeilge. We want to give a chance to English-medium schools to change to Gaelscoileanna.

Since the foundation of the state, no governmant has succeeded in re-vitalising the Irish language as a living language, used outside of the education system on a daily basis. With this plan we are trying to make every school a Gaelscoil - Gaelscoi, Gach Scoil!

In the first year of the plan, teachers will be responsible for undertaking one curricular subject through the medium of Irish, and one subsequent subject to be taught every two years. In order to make this journey more enjoyable for teachers and children, they will begin with non-curricular subjects.

The entire process will take 20 years. When teachers are comfortable teaching the subjects through Irish, the school will make a decision that Irish will be the official medium of communication and and teaching in the school.
