Cuairt TG4

May 21st, 2018

 TG4 i nGaelscoil Donncha Rua!

Bhí rang a 1,2 agus a 3 go léir ar bís an tseachtain seo chaite nuair a tháinig TG4 go dtí ár scoil chun taifeadadh a dhéanamh le haghaigh an sraith nua; ‘Ár Scéal’ atá ag teacht amach san Fhómhar. Is sraith ealaíne agus scéalaíochta é Ár Scéal agus thóg na páistí go léir páirt ag insint an scéal, ag aisteoireacht agus ag déanamh an ealaíon chun dul leis.

There was great excitement for 1st, 2nd and 3rd class last week when TG4 arrived to film them for the new series of Ár Scéal which will be broadcast in the Autumn. It is a story and art themed production which involved the children taking part in telling the story, acting and creating some beautiful art work to accompany the story.
