‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’ was launched last Friday with wonderful assemblies ‘as gaeilge’ by Ms. Curtin/Ms. O’Connor’s 1stclass and Ms. Coonan’s 4th class.
Celebrations will continue all this week! Many ‘in class’ events have been organised by the teachers including the 6th class seó faisean and ‘nuacht an lae’ on the intercom!
A number of school events have also been arranged.
Irish dancing teacher Joanne McDonnell has kindly offered to teach the junior classes an Irish dance or two today and tomorrow.
St Augustine’s school Bodhrán Group will perform in Carysfort on Thursday. The school ‘banna ceoil’, Irish dancers and singers are busy practising each day at lunchtime and will perform for all classes on Friday.
‘Lá Glas’ will be on Friday, March 15th and the children may all dress up coming to school. This is a fun day and there will be no charge.
Please join us in encouraging your child to use their ‘cúpla focal’ this week. Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge! Click here to open a booklet entitled “Labhair Gaeilge Linn”.
Finally, the school will be closed on Monday, March 18th and Tuesday, March 19th. Wishing you all a very enjoyable St Patrick’s Weekend!
