Congratulations to Ruth from 3rd class for achieving 2nd place in the AIJS poetry competition. We look forward to hearing the poem.
The Association of Independent Junior Schools (A.I.J.S) is an umbrella organisation for private primary schools in Ireland. There are approximately 40 member schools throughout the country. Private primary schools in Ireland receive no state funding and the government terms us 'unrecognised'. Because we function independently of the government, our own association provides us with a forum for discussion, development, debate, information exchange, training, lobbying etc.
We also use our association for running competitions between our students. These competitions cover diverse areas: sport, music, art, handwriting, creative writing and photography are but a few examples.
