Feachtas don Fhoirgneamh Nua
Campaign for the New Building
Is gaelscoil ilchreidmheach í Gaelscoil an Chaisleáin agus tá suíomh buan á lorg don bhfoirgneamh nua. Bunaíodh an scoil sa bhliain 2017 agus tá géarghá le suíomh buan anois toisc go bhfuil an scoil ag dul ó neart go neart.
Ballincollig multi-denominational Gaelscoil, Gaelscoil an Chaisleáin, seeks a permanent site. Gaelscoil an Chaisleáin was opened by the Department of Education & Skills in 2017 and has since outgrown its current site on the grounds of Ballincollig Rugby club in Tanner Park. The town’s population continues to grow at a great rate, with a notable and ongoing increase in the number of new housing estates. The school currently rents its accommodation but a permanent building for our much needed school is a better use of our taxpayers’ money. The demand from young families in the area for multi-denominational gaelscoil places cannot be fully met due to the temporary and limited nature of the current location. The Board of Management is very grateful to Ballincollig Rugby club for its support in accommodating the growth of the school to this point. For future expansion, the parents and Board of Management are urging the Department to secure a permanent site without any further delay.
Gaelscoil an Chaisleáin is a multi-denominational Gaelscoil under the patronage of an Foras Pátrúnachta which provides Irish-medium education at primary and secondary levels, with a range of options in relation to spiritual ethos. The school currently has classes from junior infants up to second class.
