Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is Gaelcholáiste Na Mara only for students who attend Gaelscoileanna?

A. No, students from Gaelscoileanna and English-speaking schools can enrol in Gaelcholáiste Na Mara. However, students must demonstrate that they are committed to the Irish language and culture.

Q. What standard of Irish does my child require?

A. Any prospective pupil of Gaelcholáiste na Mara will need to like Irish and be willing to communicate through the language in all he/she does in school. All pupils, regardless of their primary school background, continue to learn more Irish as they progress through post-primary.

Q. I/We (Parents) have limited/very little Irish. How can we help our child with homework?

A. This is a common concern amongst parents. The college endeavours through an after school study group to provide a relaxed, disciplined environment where pupils will have the opportunity to ask question or get assistance from the supervising teacher. Pupils, as they get older, will be encouraged and shown how to become more independent in their learning and academic development. Pupil’s progress will be closely monitored by their teachers, and regular communication between parents and staff will ensure that each child’s progress is discussed and evaluated.

Q. Will my child be at a disadvantage if he/she has not attended a Gaelscoil?

A. No. Research carried out by Gaelscoileanna and Gaelcholáistí shows that pupils from non-Gaelscoileanna are at no disadvantage by Christmas of the first year at a post-primary All-Irish school. (Source:www.gaelscoileanna.ie)
