There is now over 80 children attending the unit which is served by four teachers and four teaching assistants. Growing from strength to strength there can be little doubt that it will soon enjoy more than a hundred pupils.
The students benefit from the commitment of the teaching staff and, of course, the gift of bilingualism. Research from the Department of Education shows that children who receive a bilingual education, in a language other than their home language, enjoy an academic advantage compared to their monolingual counterparts.
