About Monaghan Model Primary School

As part of Seachtain an Gaeilge, 3rd and 4th class teamed up with Mrs Stewart’s Senior Infants.

Here are a few pictures of third and fourth class working with senior infants. Some children were reading Irish books, some playing a matching game, playing Deir Ó Grádaigh, playing in the siopa, cé hé mise? etc...

It was a great way to get using our Gaeilge!!!

Check out our art work and our report writing on animals! What impressive work by 3rd and 4th class!!

Speech by Raymond Wilkinson

The Model School is a co_educational school under the management of the Department of Education.  Our school is essentially Christian in ethos catering mainly for children from Protestant denominations but other faiths are welcome.  We encourage a Christian set of moral beliefs, attitudes and practices.  

We endeavour to create a positive climate and atmosphere where each pupil feels valued and accepted; where the personal development, health and wellbeing of the individual is nurtured and maintained, thus enabling them to develop positive relationships and become active and responsible citizens of society. 

Our vision is that each child should fulfil his/her potential intellectually, physically, socially and morally, regardless of gender, race or creed. 

We aspire to educate the school community towards openness, respect for diversity and inclusiveness where each individual is valued and accepted and holds responsibility for the creation of a fair and just multicultural society.  

The school staff sees it as their responsibility, through their professional interactions, to promote all aspects of the school ethos.  Our school recognises also that the individual and collective professional and personal development of teachers is a duty of care and consideration.  

During the years 2013 - 2015 an extensive refurbishment and extension was undertaken. These photographs (in no particular order) tell the story of the construction.

Thank You Malcolm

We would like to offer sincere thanks to Malcolm Totten for sending us the pictures for the 150th Anniversary Celebrations pictures and also the School Re-Opening following renovations & extension.
