Naíonra Mhic Amhlaigh

Áiseanna Buana

Bunaíodh Naíonra Mhic Amhlaigh i 1993 ag an am céanna le Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh. Ó osclaíodh an scoil agus an Naíonra i gcóiríocht sealadach den chéad uair i 1993 , bhí sé mar fhís ag an mBord Bainistíochta go gcuirfí áiseanna buana ar fáil don scoil agus don naíonra mar aon le áiseanna eile a bheadh mar chabhair d’fhorbairt na Gaeilge i gCnoc na Cathrach. Thuig bunaitheoirí na scoile go rí-mhaith an tábhacht a bhaineann leis an luathoideachais trí Ghaeilge, agus an ról fíor thábhachtach a imríonn sé le tacú leis an Ghaeilge a thabhairt ar aghaidh ó ghlúin go glúin. Anois , buíochas le Dia , tá foirgnimh álainn nua ar shuíomh na scoile’ Áras Mhic Amhlaigh’ a dhéanann freastal ar sheirbhísí Naíonra agus iarscoile do pháistí . Is é Comhar Naíonra na Gaeltachta an tseirbhís aitheanta náisiúnta a chuireann seirbhísí luathbhlianta ar fáil ar fud na Gaeltachta.

Is é Comhar Naíonraí na Gaeltachta a chuireann seirbhísí riaracháin,tacaíochta agus traenála ar fáil do Naíonra s’againne.
Is áis luathoideachais é an naíonra a chuireann forbairt fhisiceach, intleachtúil, mhothúchánach, chruthaitheach agus shóisialta an pháiste chun cinn. Déantar é seo trí mheán an spraoi agus na Gaeilge i dtimpeallacht atá sábháilte, sláintiúil, spreagúil, fáilteach, sonasach agus tacúil. Tagann páistí le chéile sa naíonra, faoi chúram Múinteora, cúig lá sa tseachtain ar feadh trí huaire a’ chloig gach lá.
