Circus & Fairground

Circus and Fairground Education

Circus and Fairground families receive an education while on the move throughout the country.

This educational support scheme is funded by the DES and co-ordinated by the Limerick Education Centre. The network of Education Centres supports this work in their local areas.

A network of teachers, geographically spread around the country, is on call to come to the sites when requested by the parents. The teachers usually travel out after school and provide this tuition in the late afternoon.

West Cork Education Centre supports the Circus and Fairground Education Scheme and a number of teachers in the West Cork area are available to support these families when they visit West Cork.
