Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin is an All-Irish primary school. An Foras Pátrúnachta is the patron body of the school. Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin was founded in 1996 to provide education through the medium of Irish in Wicklow and the surrounding district. Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin was the first interdenominational gaelscoil – with a joint Catholic and Protestant ethos – in the country. It is also a co-educational school.
In the academic year 1996-7 there were 40 pupils and two teachers in the school, now there are more than two hundred and seventy pupils and 14 full-time teachers in the school – including an administrative principal, Seán Ó Briain, and three learning support/resource teachers. The school also has a full-time secretary, two special needs assistants, a caretaker and two part-time cleaners.
The most important people in Gaelscoil Chill Mhantáin are, of course, the pupils. View this website to find out more about our school and to see the pupils at work and at play.
