Ardscoil Phádraig is one of approximately 70 schools nationwide to have been awarded a Gaelbhratach in recognition of our promotion of the Irish language throughout our school and local community. The primary aim of our participation in the scheme is to create and encourage a culture of speaking Irish informally within our school community and beyond. Our Coiste Gaelbhratach, consisting of student representatives from each year group in the school, work throughout the year to organise activities and events trí mheán na Gaeilge in areas including music, art and sport. Currently in our fourth year of being a Gaelbhratach school, fantastic progress has been made in encouraging our students to promote Irish language and culture in both our school and local community. Táimid ag tnúth go mór le híomhá dhearfach na Gaeilge a chur chun cinn sa scoil agus i measc an phobail lasmuigh di arís le linn na bliana seo.
