A Brief History
Scoil Aiséirí Chríost is situated on the North Side of Cork City in a place called Farranree. The name Farranree comes from the Irish words Fearran Rí, which mean the Land of the King. Scoil Aiséirí Chríost first opened its doors to the children of Farranree in June of 1959. It is a Presentation School founded by the Sisters of the North Presentation Convent in Gerald Griffen Street. This is an all girls school. 400 children attend the school with a further 60 three year old boys and girls enrolled in the Early Start Preschool.
In 1996 Scoil Aiséirí Chríost was invited to partake in a pilot programme for early education. Thus began the Early Start programme, which is housed in a prefab on the school grounds. and consists of 2 classrooms which cater for 60 children, both boys and girls aged 3 years. Two teachers and two childcare workers are employed in this unit. Here 60 preschool boys and girls explore learning through the medium of play.
A team of Resource Teachers is in place to support children who experience learning difficulties.
