On November 12th we took part in a Lá Gaeilge- a Conradh na Gaeilge initiave to encourage children to speak our Native Language. In the morning activities in the classes included Irish games, buddy reading and singing performances all through the medium of Irish.
After break we had a visit from Mr Noel Coakley who told us about school when he was young and showed us a selection of old school books. He then provided a very entertaining rendition of an Irish story about a boy call Jimeen.
Every year we take part in Seachtain na Gaeilge which normally takes place in the Spring Term.
