Seachtain na Gaeilge

A mhúinteoirí, a chairde, 

A massive go raibh maith agaibh to you all  – thank you all so much for any of the ways that you might have contributed to Seachtain na Gaeilge. 

Táimid ag deireadh Sheachtain na Gaeilge (sa scoil) anois. 

We have reached the end of our school Seachtain na Gaeilge. 

Leanann Seachtain na Gaeilge náisiúnta ar aghaidh go dtí Lá ‘le Pádraig. 

Meanwhile the national festival continues up to St Patrick’s day. 

Don dara huair, d’imir Covid 19 drochthionchar ar ár gceiliúradh. 

For the second year in a row plans to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge were scuppered by Covid 19! 

Ach d’éirigh linn cuid mhaith a dhéanamh ar aon nós agus táim an-bhuíoch díbh go léir as sin. 

But we ploughed on and I am very grateful to all who played a role in whatever way they could. 

  • Tionól ar an Luan: Seachtain na Gaeilge, Lá Idirnáisiúnta na mBan agus an chaint  – Monday’s assembly – on Monday I challenged those who were present to consider how they speak about Seachtain na Gaeilge and International Women’s day. I presented some facts about why we need to higher the plight of women around the world, and I presented two minorty figure women who are doing their part to promote the use of Irish on Social Media; Mise Ciara and Ola Majekodunmi
  • Kahoot na Scoile ar an Máirt – On Tuesday about 50 people (including teachers!) took part in a Seachtain na Gaeilge quiz. Lily Quilty in 1y was the overall winner, with Grace Cunnane 5Y in 2nd and Anahita Aryan in 3Y in 3rd. It was a good laugh and the teachers appeared to be well beaten by the students! 
  • Lá Glas ar an gCéadaoin – Greenday Wednesday – Lots of students and teachers channelled Seachtain na Gaeilge with green backgrounds, green clothes, green glasses, green runners and even some green nails and eye-shadow! 
  • Ceardlann “Seó Bóthair” ar an Déardaoin don 3ú, 4ú agus 5ú Bliain – On Thursday, 3rd, 4th and 5th year students were invited along to the Irish road show, on Zoom, which is run by Conradh na Gaeilge. Every one of the attendees agreed on having learned something new about Irish and its place amongst the other 6,700 languages in the world. 

Roll on a Covid free SnaG for 2022 – roll on the céilí! 

Le gach dea-ghuí,
