A learner and learning centered school

Learning. It’s what we do here!

Coláiste Chú Chulainn is committed to learning. Every member of our school community (gach scoláire, gach ball foirne agus gach tuismitheoir) will be expected to engage in the enthusiastic pursuit of learning and improvement. As a committed teaching staff, we continuously strive to promote and further our students’ learning and development through the use of a wide range of Teaching for Learning Strategies. We also strive to promote and further our own learning through personal reflection, extensive reading from our teaching library, thorough and systematic analysis of our classroom practice, action research projects and through collaboration with our colleagues.
