Multi-Award Winning Programme

Bua na Cainte WINS
European Language Label of the Year Award Winner 2015

The contribution of the programme Bua na Cainte was recognised by the European Commission and was awarded the European Language Label of the Year Award 2015.

In its adjudication on Bua na Cainte the jury commented Excellent.
“Resources are of a high standard…. The project has a highly integrated ICT element which uses technology as an effective teaching and learning approach…. Considering the linguistic diversity of Irish primary schools, this project and its materials could be an excellent resource for parents who do not have knowledge of the Irish language… Because of its transferability to contexts outside of formal school settings, this project could have potential to be used in a range of informal learning settings.’’

Bua na Cainte was the only winner awarded the term ‘excellent’ by the jury in 2015.
