Iar-daltaí / Past Pupils:

Má tá iar-dhalta ar bith  ag iarraidh taithí oibre a dhéanamh sa scoil níl le déanamh ach litir bheag a chur chuig an Phríomhoide.

If any past-pupils are interested in work experience in the Gaelscoil, we are happy to accommodate them. They can apply in writing to the Principal.

Réalt Uladh

Níl Réalt Uladh ar siúl i mbliana.
The Réalt Uladh competition will not take place this year.

Éide Scoile / School Uniform

Tá sé iontach tábhacht go gcaitheann ná páistí an éide scoile ceart.
 
·         Brístí / sciorta dubh-ghorm
·         Geansaí dearg le crest na scoile
·         Léine bán
·         Bróga dubh nó bróga reatha dubh

Déan cinnte fosta go bhfuil ainm do pháiste scríobhfá ar a gcuid éide scoile. 

It is very important that children wear the proper school uniform which consists of :
 
·         navy trousers / skirt
·         red crested sweatshirt
·         white polo shirt
·         black shoes or black sports shoes
Please also ensure that the child’s name is written on the label of their sweatshirt.
Brian Roper will return to the Gaelscoil on 23rd January for 6 weeks for Gaelic Football Training.

Kevin O Donnell will continue with music lessons every Wednesday. Any child who is interested are asked to bring in their instruments and €2 to help cover the cost.

Bhuaigh Fiachra an dara h-áit in Shot Putt thíos in Átha Luain i rith na Nollag. Maith thú!

Congratulations to Fiachra who was placed second in the All Ireland Shot Putt in Athlone recently. Well done!

Seó na Nollag: 

Maith sibh féin a pháistí as Seó na Nollag den chéad scoth a chur ar siúl in Ostán Solis agus mo bhuíochas do thuistí agus do chairde na scoile as a gcuid tacaíochta.

Well done to the Gaelscoil children for putting on a brilliant Christmas Show in the Solis Hotel and thanks to all the parents and friends for supporting.

Seisiún Carúil/Carol Singing:

Ghlac na páistí páirt i Seisiún Carúl i Supervalu. Míle buíochas do gach duine.

The Gaelscoil children took part in the recent carol singing at Supervalu. Thanks to everyone who supported the event. Almost €200 was raised which will go towards purchasing school resources.
