NEW!! Opportunity for Schools to Form Clusters and Apply for Creative Cluster Funding and Support

Further to the recently announced opportunity by Minister Joe McHugh for schools to cluster together and apply for Creative Clusters funding and support through their local Education Centre, please see the Application Form and Guideline document for further information. The Press Release and Guidelines Document sets out information about the new clusters and the application process for same. 

As you will see from the press release, Kilkenny Education Centre is already supporting three local schools to work together on a coding project which also supports transition between the three schools. St. John’s Senior School is the lead co-ordinating school and works in collaboration with St. John’s Junior N.S. and Loreto Secondary School to develop innovative coding projects. Senior students support and mentor junior students, thus supporting student transition between schools.

The Creative Cluster will enjoy access to a specialist facilitator, artist or creative expertise in whatever their own chosen area of interest or theme might be. These resources will help the schools build a programme of learning and activities tailor-made for their students. In addition, clusters will receive up to €7,500 (€1,500 per participating school) to help bring their plans and ideas to fruition. Clusters can consist of all Primary schools, all Post Primary schools or a mixture of both. 

Kilkenny Education Centre will be supporting one creative cluster of three to five schools. 

The closing date for applications from schools is Friday 10th May 2019. Applications should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 4p.m. on that date. 

Please do not hesitate to contact the Centre should you have any queries or questions about this exciting opportunity!
