Colaiste Bhride in Carnew is one of the first in the country trying a new style school day, with longer classes.
The school is moving to one hour sessions instead of the traditional half-hour to thirty five minute slots.
Speaking on East Coast FM, school principal Linda Dunne said “We actually had 35 and 40-minute classes, so when the bell went there was a scramble in corridors and a lot of time wasted perhaps going to the toilet on the way or having a chat on the way.
“Our school would be spread across a wide area as well, so getting from one part of the school to the other took at least five minutes if you dilly-dallied along the way.”
