Gaeilgeoirí na Seachtaine !


Shocraíomar dhá bailiúcháin éadaí a bheith againn gach bhliain chun airgead a thiomsú don scoil - ceann amhain i Mí Bealtaine agus Ceann eile i Mí Deireadh Fómhair. Beidh an chéad bailiúchán eile againn ar an 15ú Mí Bealtaine 2019. Mar sin tá alán am againn ar fad chun rudaí a chur le chéile! Coiméad na héadaí srl sa bhaile go dtí timpeall seachtain roimh dáta an bhailiúchán. Ansin piocfaimid áit sa scoil chun na málaí a choimeád don seachtain deirneach. Féach thíos cad tá ceadaithe agus nach bhfuil ceadaithe don bailiúchán.
Ba bhreá linn ar a laghad mála mór amháin ó gach clann. Iarr ar bhur gcomharsana béal dorais/gcairde/ngaolta go léir chun cur leis an mbailiúchán scoile seo le bhur dtoil!

We have decided to have a clothes collection twice every year to fundraise for the school - one in May and the other in October. The next collection will be on the 15th May 2019. We're giving plenty of notice so you'll have time to gather stuff to donate! You may start bringing the bags to the school the week before the collection date. We will pick a collection point in the school and you may leave them there. See below the items allowed and not allowed for the collection.
We're hoping for at least one hip-high bag per family! Ask your neighbours, friends and relations too! The Easter break will be a great time to do a clear out for the Summer!

An Cóineartú / Confirmation

Fé mar is eol do mhaidrí an baile, bhí ár gCóineartú againn inné. Ba ócáid álainn, spriodálta, snasta, naofa í. Chomhghairdeas mór leis na páistí a chuaigh faoi lámh Easpag Sheáin Ó Buachalla. Ina dhiaidh, bhí cupán tae deas le fáilt in Ionad an Mhainistir. D'oibrigh coiste na dtuistí R3 & R4 go dian chun gach rud a leagadh amach go deas agus bhí gach sórt cáca, briosca agus ceapaire go bhféadfá smaoineamh air ann! Go raibh maith agat leis leis na tuistí ar fad a chabhraigh go mór chun lá speisialta a dhéanamh dos na páistí.

As everyone knows, we had our Confirmation yesterday. It was a beautiful, spiritual, polished, holy occasion. A big congratulations to the children who were confirmed by Bishop John Buckley. Afterwards there was a lovely tea in the Friary Centre. The parents association members from 3rd and 4th class worked hard to lay out everything nicely and there was every sort of cake, biscuit and sandwich that you could think of there! Thanks so much to all the parents that helped greatly to make such a special day for the children.

Féile Drámaíochta na hÉireann



Chomhghairdeas mór lenár n-aisteoirí a ghlac páirt sa chraomh uile Éire do Fhéile Drámaíochta na hEireann ar an Aoine seo chaite, i Muileann gCearr, Co. na hIarmhí. Bhaineamar go léir an taitneamh as, is cuma an toradh a bheidh air. Is buaiteoirí iad uile inár súile cheanna féin. Bhí mé thar a bheith bródúil astu ar an stáitse ach a n-iompar ar na busanna, i Muileann gCearr agus san óstán nuair a stopamar is ea an rud a cur an bród is mó orm. Fé mar go bhfuil taithí againn air bhí na páistí lách agus béasach i ngach slí. Is dóigh liom gur bhain gach duine árd taitneamh agus tairbhe as an eispéireas. Maith sibh Rang 3, Rang 4 & Rang 5 agus go raibh maith agat go speisialta le Múinteoirí Carmel, Siún agus Grace a d'oibrigh chomh dian leis na páistí a ullmhú agus le Múinteoirí Aodán, Michelle agus Neasa a thacaigh leis an gcleachtadh agus mar sin de. Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile abú!

Congratulations and well done to our actors in 3rd, 4th and 5th classes who particpated in the finals of the All-Ireland Drama competition in Mullingar, Co.Westmeath last Friday. We all enjoyed a great day out regardless of the outcome -which will be revealed during the school holidays. Our crew are already winners in our eyes. Their behaviour on the buses, in Mullingar and in the hotel in Tullamore en route home made me so proud and is better than any prize they could win. As we have been able to come to expect, the children were polite and well behaved in every way. Everyone enjoyed the day and the children really benefitted from the whole experience. Well done to you all R3, R4 and R5 and a special word of thanks to Múinteoir Carmel, Múinteoir Siún and Múintoeir Grace for their graft in writing, choreographing and organising the performance but also  Múinteoir Aodán, Múinteoir Michelle and Múinteoir Neasa who facilitated the rehearsals. Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile abú!

Nuacht Rang 2

Bhí an-lá againn inniu i rang a dó. Fuaireamar ár gcéad litreacha ónár gcairde pinn i Chicago! Scríbheamar litreacha thar n-ais ag rá leo faoin dath is fearr linn, an bia is fearr linn, an ábhar scoile is fearr linn agus cathain a bhfuil ár mbreithlá. 
Táimid ag súil le litreacha a fháil thar n-ais go luath. 

We had a great day today in rang 2. We received our first letters from our pen pals in Chicago! We replied telling them about our favourite colour, food, subject and when our birthday is. We are really looking forward to getting more letters soon.

Rang 2

Fwd: An Coiste Glas

A chairde,

Táimid tar éis mórán Éireann a dhéanamh le coicís anuas anois mar Coiste Glas. Tá an-áthas orainn ará go bhfuilimid céim níos congaraí anois chun an brat fuinneamh a bhaint amach! 

(We have done alot of work over the past fortnight as a Green Committee. We are delighted to say that we are now one step closer to carrying out the energy flag!)

Gan amhras, tosnaíonn dea-nósanna sa bhaile agus ní mór dos na páistí foghlaim faoi caomhnú fuinneamh agus leictreachas sa bhaile ó aois óg.

(Undoubtedly, good habits start at home and children need to learn about energy and electricity preservation at home from a young age).

Bheimis an-sásta cloisint uaibh agus ná bíodh aon leisce oraibh dul i dteangmháil linn, an Coiste Glas, aon am i rith na bliana má tá tuairmí agaibh nó má aon ceist agaibh.

(We would be very happy to hear from you and do not hesitate to contact us, the Green Committe, anytime throughout the year if you have any ideas, suggestions or questions).

Mar eolas breise- tá an scoil ag foghlaim an Cód Glas faoi láthair. Ceangailte anseo thíos, tá na líricí a bhaineann leis. B'fhéidir go mbainfidh sibh taitneamh as cleactadh a dhéanamh ar sa bhaile.

(Some extra information- the school is currently learning the Green Code, a song. Attached below are the lyrics for this code. Maybe you would enjoy practicing it at home)

Le meas,
An Coiste Glas

Iar scoláirí chuig na scoile

Tháinig iar scoláirí chuig na scoil chun labhairt le ranganna 4-6 faoi bhuntáistí bunoideachas trí Ghaeilge agus iad sa Mheanscoil.
Past pupils came to the school this week and outlined the benefits of receiving a primary education through Irish. It was fantastic to welcome Ellie , Amelia and Holly back to the Gaelscoil. Maith sibh a chailíní!  

Lá Glas

Bhí lá glas againn sa Ghaelscoil inniu mar bhuaicphointe dár gceiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge. Thosaigh sé le paráid bheag sa chlós. Ina dhiaidh bhí banna ceoil beag ag seinnt Amhrán na bhFiann agus chríochnaigh sé le cluiche biongó dosna naí ranganna agus tráth na gceist dosna ranganna eile.

Today we had a lá glas in the Gaelscoil to mark the high point in our celebrations of Seachtain na Gaeilge. We started off with a parade in the yard. This was followed by a small music group playing Amhrán na bhFiann. We finished up with a game of bingo in infants and table quizzes in the older classes.

Bíodh Lá le Pádraig agus deireadh seachtaine fada deas agaibh go léir!
