Seachtain na Gaeilge Irish Language week

Next week is seachtain na Gaeilge ( Irish language week) where we celebrate our language and culture. Here are some of the events taking place.

  1. A shop will be coming to the classes every day. You will only be able to buy things in this shop by speaking Irish.
  2. A traditional music band will perform for the children.
  3. There will be a treasure hunt or a Toraíocht Taisce for the infant classes which is being organised by the parent teacher association.
  4. We are having a lá glas agus Gaeilge next Friday where all children can dress up in green and we will be raising money for the school by having a spare change collection.
  5. On Thursday we will be having an Irish dancing Céilí in the school and we will be having Irish dancing lessons for lots of classes on wednesday
  6. We will be visiting and having visitors from our friends at Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada and Griffeen Valley ETNS.
  7. There will be a Irish language Show on Friday where each class will perform to the school in an Irish language piece.

This is just a flavour of what will be going on in the school. We make a big effort in the school to promote the Irish language and to ensure that all the children enjoy learning it. Ask your child to teach you a phrase or two so that you can be part of the fun,

 

Ádh Mór,
