Scoil Chroí Íosa
Scoil Chroí Íosa, established in 1815, is a diverse welcoming environment for learning. Through teamwork and in partnership with the parents and the whole school community, the school facilitates the full development of each child’s independence and responsibility for self, society and the world we live in. We promote a love and respect for the outdoors through lessons in our large School Garden growing our own food, special Forest School lessons in the local woods, and through building links with outdoor education specialists in Brigid’s Garden and NUI Galway. Even our own school library has been decorated like a real rainforest! We encourage our school community to walk or cycle to school along the beautiful canal at the rear of our school grounds, linking us to the natural and man-made blue ways of the city.
