St. Felim's N.S applied to be included as part of a pilot phase for the new Primary Language Curriculum from 3rd to 6th class. 40 schools applied nationwide with our school being amongst the 12 selected. Teachers will travel to Athlone for an evening workshop followed by a full day training. Full substitute cover is provided. In this way we in St. Felim's will have an opportunity to give feedback on this new curriculum, what works well, what doesn't work etc. We will be supported by visits from staff from the NCCA. We are looking forward to being part of this exciting initiative.
