Seachtain na Gaeilge

Congratulations and well done to all the pupils who took part in the different activities for Seachtaine na Gaeilge last week. First and second class took part in an art competition. Third to Sixth class took part in a table quiz. Undoubtedly, the standard was very high again this year. All the pupils really enjoyed the different events. Once again congratulations to all pupils who took part. We hope everyone will continue to use and enjoy the Irish language. Bain trial as! Many thanks to Mrs. Kennedy who co-ordinated Seachtain na Gaeilge for us once again this year.

Féile an Aonaigh 2018

Junior and Senior infant classes travelled to Nenagh last week, with their teacher Mrs. Kennedy to take part in Aithriseoireacht Grúpa as Gaeilge (Group Recitation in Irish) , at the Comórtais Scoile Bunscoile, at Féile an Aonaigh, Nenagh. It was the very first time these children have represented our school. We are so proud of our very youngest pupils, their confidence in speaking Irish, their vibrancy and enthusiasm has been remarked by all, both in the lead up to the event and during their performance on the day! Stars for the future! Comhghairdeas le gach duine!
