SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

26th April 2018


From the Principal’s desk:

Here’s hoping that the weather is here to stay….even if it is slow to make an appearance. We were so lucky last week when Farmer Anne came to visit some of the classes as we were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine with the animals.


The lovely weather even brought some visitors into our yard….and they were not too eager to leave!!!!!


 Ta 125 bliain ó thosaíodh athbheochan na Gaeilge á cheiliúradh i mbliana agus mar chuid de sin tá comórtas ar siúil ag Conradh na Gaeilge.  D'aistrigh Rang a 4 na liricí ón amhrán Something Just Like this le Coldplay agus d'eagraigh Rang a 6 an físeán.  Rinne Conor (athair Alana R2 agus Joshua R5), Máire (máthair, Joanie R6, Daniel R4 agus Emma R2) agus Kieran (athair Harper R6 agus Jarvis R3) an taifeadadh ar an bhfíseán.  Nach bhfuil se go hiontach!

Recently, as you know all the children took part in a competition run by Conradh na Gaeilge to mark the 125th anniversary of the revival of the Irish language. A huge thank you to Conor (Joshua – R5 and Alana Lily – R2’s dad), Máire (Joanie – R6, Daniel – R4 and Emma – R2’s mum) and Kieron (Harper – R6 and Jarvis – R3’s dad) for all their help in recording, editing and producing the video. It was a lot of fun!!! We hope you enjoy watching the video as much as we enjoyed making it!  Rud Éigin Mar Seo
