Gaelbhratach Meeting

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on November 17, 2017

On the 19th of October our school had a meeting for the Gaelbhratach committee. The members are Maire Chau, Lachlan O’Shea, Lucy Griffin, Finn Barton, Lily Mae Clifford and Bart Flynn. We talked about what we did a few years ago to get our last flag and what we could do to make the school better by bringing Irish into our everyday subjects or speaking it on an everyday basis.

Today we put up our Halloween Decorations. Everyone was invited to bring in some of the decorations they had. Ella, Éabha, Maire and Michael all brought in different things. Ella brought in a skull. Michael brought in a leg with blood. Éabha brought in a witch and Maire brought in a grave stone and a witch. The classroom looked really good. Ava Meikle then helped Sir stick up some posters around the classroom. By the end it looked great.

Art Competition

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on November 15, 2017

On Friday the 6th of October everyone in the school took part in the Credit Union and Astellas art competitions. Junior infants all the way up to 6th class drew pictures for both. That means we sent off over  90 pictures as numbers are very high in our school this year. We were very lucky to take part in these competitions. Everyone had very nice drawings. The teachers were also very proud of us.

Siamsa Tíre

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on November 14, 2017

On the 13th of October, the entire school went to Siamsa Tíre in Tralee. We all went on buses and it was really fun. We saw a play which was very educational. As well as everyone going, our new Junior Infants all came along and each had a great time. It was the first outing of the year and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Also at the end of the play we all got to ask questions if we wanted to and alot of my school did.
