March/Easter 2013

Seachtain na Gaeilge: We had a very enjoyable and successful seachtain na Gaeilge. Professor Plunger, aka one of the Fanzini brothers, and his willing “volunteers”, provided great entertainment on Monday morning. Congratulations to all our Gaelgóirí and well done to everybody for making a big effort to use their Gaeilge as much as possible. Lean ar aghaidh leis! The fun quiz was great. Bhí spórt agus craic againn go léir sa halla Dé hAoine. Míle buiochas do Mrs. Kelly, Mrs. Moran, Pól, Máirtín agus Lynn.

Music: Well done to our 5th and 6th class choir who took part in The Peace Proms on March 2nd. Everybody from 1st to 6th enjoyed the concert by Bartsville High School in St.Canices on March 20th. Guitar and tin whistle lessons are going very well with Konor and Paul.

RTE and KCLR paid us a visit recently to interview some of our boys and girls.

World Book Day: Classes enjoyed story reading and meeting authors in Dubray Book Store.

Art: Shona Flood did some wonderful pottery with our 5th classes , as part of the Challenge to Change Project.
