GAEILGE SA CHLÓS
During December, the children in our school made a huge effort to take Irish beyond the confines of the daily lesson and speak it in their everyday lives. Initially, focus was on using Irish on the yard as much as possible (Gaeilge sa chlós). As a reward for each child’s efforts, tokens were given out by teachers and SNAs. The class with the most tokens, at the end of the week, won a special treat such as a night off homework, extra P.E. etc. It is hoped that this initiative will be extended in this New Year, perhaps using Irish as a means to teach and learn another subject. We are also looking forward to Seachtain na Gaeilge which takes place in March.
Well done to everyone who has been ‘ag labhairt Gaeilge’! Keep it up and remember to try it at home too. (Bain triail as sa bhaile)
