Seachtain na Gaeilge 2022 ☘

Seachtain na Gaeilge will be celebrated in Carysfort from Wednesday 9th-Wednesday 16th March 2022.

Here is a list of some of the activities the children will be taking part in during the week:

  • Irish dancing teacher Ms. Joanne McDonnell will be teaching the Junior Classes, while the Senior Classes will have the opportunity to take part in a Céilí.
  • 2nd – 6th class children will be working on a Foclóir Taistil (travelling dictionary) which will travel through the school giving children the opportunity to add to the content provided by the classes before them based on a theme.
  • Children who play instruments will be invited to perform as a ‘banna ceoil’.
  • Comórtas Gaeilge: All children are encouraged to use as much Gaeilge as possible throughout the week. Staff members will give tickets to children they see making an extra effort. The class with the most tickets y the end of the week will win a prize.
  • All classes will be learning songs as Gaeilge and listening to stories trí Ghaeilge throughout the week.
  • Wednesday, 16th March will be ‘Lá Glas’ and the children may all dress up coming to school.

Please join us in encouraging your child to use their ‘cúpla focal’ this week. There is a document attached with some commonly used words and phrases translated into Irish and written out phonetically to help parents to get involved.

 Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste i rith Seachtain na Gaeilge!

Finally, the school will be closed on Thursday March 17th and Friday March 18th as it is a public holiday.

Wishing you all a very enjoyable St Patrick’s Day.

Le gach dea mhéin.
