Tá gach duine ag baint taitneamh as seachtain na Gaeilge agus ag déanamh gníomhachtaí difriúla chun seachtain na Gaeilge a cheiliúradh. D’fhoghlaim gach éinne amhráin ‘Is Leatsa í’ agus déanfaidh na páistí slabhra mór ar an Luain chun ár dteanga dúchais a cheiliúradh.   To celebrate our national language the whole school has been taking part in various fun activities to celebrate ‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’. All classes have learnt the song ‘Is Leatsa í’ and on Monday will form a circle in the yard with all classes and sing the song together. Rang a 4,5 agus a 6 will also play the tune on their tin whistles.

Teidí Taistil /Travelling Teddy) will be used in the junior classes as an incentive to encourage the children to use the Irish language throughout the school day.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday múinteoir Aisling will give the child that is making the most effort a chance to bring Teidí Taistil home for two days.

Teidí Taistil can only understand Gaeilge and so the child must speak in Irish to him. Parents can also photograph Teidí Taistil at home doing day to day activities with their child and the photos will then be displayed in the classroom and used as part of our lesson.

Our aim is to promote the use of the Irish language throughout the school day as well as at home with family members and friends, any other suggestions or ideas are welcome!
