Gaeilge Subject Information
Cuirtear béim ar leith ar fhorbairt na Gaeilge sna ranganna agus i dtimpeallacht na scoile anseo in Ardscoil Phádraig agus is iomaí ócáid agus gníomhaíochtaí a cheiliúrtar le linn na bliana chun daltaí a spreagadh. Active learning methodologies and the integration of ICT are integral elements of each lesson, giving students an opportunity to develop their written, aural and comprehension skills as well as developing their oral competencies through the daily use of Gaeilge as a living language throughout our school community.
Our students have excelled in State Exams at both Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle level, with students also progressing to continue their study of Gaeilge at NUI Galway, Maynooth University and University College Dublin in recent years. The awarding of our Gaeltacht Scholarships, Seachtain na Gaeilge, theatre trips, Gaeilge24 and our frequent seisiún ceoil all hold a pivotal place in our school calendar. Our students innovation and creativity was also rewarded with a national award for our recent ‘Gaelfhiseán na Bliana’ video production.
Táimid fíor-bhródúil as dul chun cinn na Gaeilge sa scoil le blianta anuas agus táimid tiomanta do gach treoir agus cúnamh a thabhairt do scoláirí na scoile, chun a mbarrchumas a bhaint amach.
