Dear Parent/ Guardian,

Welcome to Coláiste Bhaile Chláir, we look forward to meeting your child in August as they make the big move from primary to second level education.

Our 1st year students will start school on Monday 28th of August where they will have a special two day induction programme to aid their transition to secondary school.

As Coláiste Bhaile Chláir is in Gaeltacht an Eachréidh, we are pleased to offer your child some classes through the medium of Irish as they enter 1st year in Coláiste Bhaile Chláir further information about this opportunity is available using the following link:

We will be sending you login details to our new Student Management Information system TYRO (Attendance, Behaviour, Timetables, Assessments, Notes etc) in the coming weeks. This system will replace VSWARE.
