MaximisingYour Childs Potential

Children become part of a young, growing, and vibrant Irish-speaking community. This develops a strong sense of social belonging.

Being part of the Irish speaking community allows your child to be part of and be proud of their communtity. Being able to speak two languages and to be able to switch naturally between them, gives children extra self confidence in their abilities which will in turn enhance their self-esteem.

Being bilingual gives your child the opportunity to mix and communicate with a wide variety of people. Speaking two languages offers a wider cultural experience and often a bilingual person will be welcoming, open and accept those who speak other languages and have different cultures.
