Rome Trip: We are leaving for Rome this Monday 25th. We are all very excited about going and hope that everyone has their bags packed. The final arrangements are being made and everyone is asked to submit passports to their group leader. “Arrivederci” to all.

Seachtain na Gaeilge: Bhí imeachtaí Seachtain na Gaeilge faoi lán-seol sa scoil an tseachtain seo cáite. Mar is gnáth bhí na múinteoirí Gaeilge ag iarraidh na daltaí (agus na múinteoirí eile!) a spreagadh le smaoineamh ar an teanga agus pé Gaeilge atá acu a chleachtadh le linn na seachtaine. Bhí Tráth na gCeist, Comórtas Ealaíne, Lá Glas agus seisiún cheoil chomh maith le himeachtaí eile ar siúl. Ar ndóigh chuireadh béim ar an spraoi i rith na seachtaine agus bhí go leor duaiseanna ar fáil. Beidh tuilleadh eolais againn an tseachtain seo chugainn ach tá siúl againn gur bhain sibh sult as na himeachtaí & úsáid as bhur nGaeilge!
