Nollaig shona ó Ghaelscoil Donncha Rua

December 17th, 2014

The children have been busy making Christmas cards for our African friends in Musul Primary school. We are twinned with this school as part of ‘The Become a Friend Project’ and have been sharing information with them for almost three years now.




We would like to wish all our friends and family abroad a very Happy Christmas. Beannachtaí na Féile chugaibh agus athbhliain faoi shonas is faoi shláinte aghaibh.


Fuair rang a 4, 5 agus a 6 litreacha ar ais óna gcáirde pinn i nGaelscoil Uí Riordáin i gCorcaigh. Bhí gliondar agus sceitimíní áthais orthu agus iad a léamh. Tá cártaí Nollag déanta agus freagraí scríofa, iad ar fad curtha ar aghaidh acu an tseachtain seo.


Rang a 4, 5 agus a 6 have been sending Christmas greetings closer to home. They have become penpals with children from Gaelscoil Uí Riordáin and have sent letters as well as Christmas cards to them all this week.
