Reputation:

Irish is a very important and integral part of the curriculum and atmosphere of Arklow CBS as is reflected in our excellent results and the demand for Higher level at Junior and Leaving Certificate.

Presently 70% of our students take higher level Junior and Leaving Certificate . It is widely accepted that doing an oral Irish for Junior Certificate greatly improves fluency in the language and as a result Leaving Certificate grades are improved.

Gaelbhratach

Arklow CBS is the only school in Arklow and just the second school in Co. Wicklow to be awarded the prestigious Gaelbhratach Or Irish Flag.

This was presented to us in recognition of the effort the students and the Irish department make in the promotion and cultivation of the Irish language.

The Gaelbhratach flies proudly outside our school and is a reminder to everybody of the importance of the Irish language in our school.

An Ghaeltacht:

Every year a trip to the Gaeltacht is organised for 1st years to encourage them to use the language they have learned and to embrace their culture. It is the highlight of their 1st year, for the teachers and the students!!!

Activities:

  • We have our ciorcal cainte gach Máirt, caint, caifé/tae agus comhrá.

This is an informal gathering at lunchtime every Tuesday where your son get to practise his Irish with “cuppa” and fun.

  • We operate the “Fáinne” system where your son can get a fáinne for his efforts in Irish in spoken Irish.
  • Gaeilgeoir na Bliana prize for the best Irish student for each year at the end of the year.

An endless list of enjoyable activities are organised throughout the year for example:
