Enhanced Curriculum

At Rockboro, we offer a broad and stimulating academic programme which exceeds the national educational curriculum for primary schools. In addition to the standard subjects taught in primary schools in Ireland, our pupils benefit from our enhanced curriculum in the areas of

  • Computer Science;
  • Science;
  • Languages (French);
  • Arts (Music and Drama);
  • Public Speaking;
  • Literacy in the Library;
  • Justice, Equality and World Religions Programme;
  • and Physical Education.

Our dedicated and highly motivated teachers are our most valuable asset. Children from the age of 5 upwards are taught a wide range of subjects by their classroom teachers and by specialist subject teachers.

The curriculum at Rockboro follows and expands on the subject guidelines set out by the Department of Education & Science for primary schools as follows:
English; Irish; Maths; History; Geography; Science; Music; Visual Arts; Drama; Physical Education and Games; and Social, Personal and Health Education.

Rockboro’s curriculum exceeds the scope and the aims of the national curriculum in the above areas
