English as an Additional Language

Welcome to the English as an Additional Language (EAL) page

English as an additional language (EAL) refers to learners whose first language is not English.

The EAL teachers this year are Ms. Cleary, Ms. Healy, Ms. O’Brien, Ms. O’Leary and Ms. Walsh.

Here you will find various resources to support the plans that we have e-mailed our students to help with their learning.

Kind regards, EAL team.
