Schools and Teachers

Schools and Teachers

Here at MoLI, we encourage children of all ages and abilities to explore their creative potential, with a focus on imaginative development, aesthetic observation, curiosity and creative play.

We are committed to youth creativity and providing a safe, creative and enjoyable environment where children of all abilities can engage with the museum.

Primary School Learning Programme

“Shut your eyes and see.” – Ulysses, James Joyce

Due to current government COVID-19 restrictions, our Shut your eyes and see onsite free primary school learning programme is temporarily on hold.

In response, along with one of our learning partner schools, St Brigid’s GNS, we have developed MoLI in the Classroom: a free, interactive, virtual, 40 to 50-minute workshop for 3rd to 6th class primary school students from across Ireland. Click here for more information and booking.

We also offer Bright Sparks Creative Bursts – writing and creativity prompts and games students and teachers can do at home or in the classroom by award-winning children’s writer and children’s book champion Sarah Webb. Click here to get lost in a Creative Burst!

All programmes are delivered in line with our MoLI Child Safeguarding Statement and our Online Safeguarding Statement.

Secondary School Learning Programme

Irish secondary school groups, accompanied by their teacher, can visit MoLI free of charge. Group bookings are temporarily on hold due to government COVID-19 restrictions. For further information, please contact [email protected]

Students and teachers can avail of our online learning resources. For teenage writers, we have NovelTeens – an online series of eight creative writing mini-masterclasses delivered by Irish YA authors, like Deirdre Sullivan, Darren Shan and Dave Rudden. We also have a new NovelTeens podcast featuring interviews with Louise O’Neill, Sarah Maria Griffin and E.R. Murray on RadioMoLI.

RadioMoLI, our digital radio station for Irish literature, has a wealth of educational podcasts to dig into, beautiful stories and poetry, fascinating discussion and informative lectures.
