Ark Access for Schools is growing!

We have expanded our Ark Access programme with the help of our generous new supporters – Clancourt, Goodbody and the INTO! Ark Access now provides twenty DEIS schools, local to The Ark, with free access to four of The Ark’s multidisciplinary events over one school year.

Ark Access provides opportunities for professional artists to work closely with the participating schools. Teachers are provided with CPD (Continuing Professional Development) opportunities and online interactive classroom packs to increase engagement with The Ark as well as facilitating the teacher’s own development and ability to deliver arts-centered curricular activities in the classroom.

In the past year our Ark Access programme has grown from thirteen to twenty-one schools. We are grateful to the following companies and organisations who support these schools to discover and love the arts with The Ark;

  • Clancourt support South City CNS, Whitefriar Street (St. Endas); Presentation Primary School Warrenmount; St. Brigid's Primary School The Coombe; Bunscoil Sancta Maria Primary School, Sygne Street; St. Christopher’s Primary School, Ballsbridge
  • Goodbody support Scoil Chaitríona, Baggot Street
  • INTO support Gaelscoil Choláiste Mhuire, 4 Parnell Square, Rotunda D1
