Seachtain na Gaeilge 2020

Seachtain na Gaeilge

The children once again took part in their own “Seo Gaeilge” this year.  The junior classes (Junior infants to 2nd class) performed on Wednesday the 11th of March and senior classes performed on Tuesday the 10th of March.  The children also took part in quiz time as Gaeilge and celebrated Gaeilge through the arts.  Mar a deir siad ‘BAIN TRAIL AISTI’.

As the slogan says ‘HAVE A GO WITH GAEILGE AND SURPRISE YOURSELF’.

Also, we were delighted to welcome John Spillane back again this year for Seachtain na Gaeilge.  He entertained us all with his songs and stories, and we know the children benefited from this experience.
