How to Save Your Planet FROM HOME!

Good morning

We are launching a series of You Tube live events from Monday 6th at 11am on our Change by Degrees channel to engage families over the holidays with fun learning challenges linked to every day objects, from toilet roll to trainers.

We would love to get families around the country involved and know only to well the challenge that lie ahead in entertaining kids from home over the holidays – with not even school work for distraction.

Our promo video went live last night  https://youtu.be/mjrQ8HV2RX0

Nathair nimhe

Le cúpla seachtain anuas, chaith roinnt páistí am ag obair ar an nathair nimhe seo le Múinteoir Siún. Nach bhfuil sé ar fheabhas?! Ní bheidh deis aige dul sa mhórshiúl i mbliana, ach

“Beidh lá eile ag an bPaorach!”


An feidir libh cabhrú linn ainm a chur air? Seol ríomhphost chugam (siun@gaelscoilchionntsaile.ie) le bhur smaointí roimh meánlae amárach, Lá le Pádraig, agus piocfaidh na múinteoirí an aimn is fearr. Go néirí libh!



For the last few weeks, children have been working on this snake with Múinteoir Siún. Isn't is fantastic?! He won't have a change to participate in the the parade this year, but we'll rise again!

Can you help to name him? Email me (siun@gaelscoilchionntsaile.ie) with your ideas before midday tomorrow, St. Patrick's Day, and the teachers will pick the best entry. Good luck!

An raibh a fhios agaibh gurb iad na beacha a dhéanann an triú cuid dár gcuid bia a phailniú? Faraor tá 30 % de na beacha anseo in Éirinn I mbaol! Le deanaí fuaireamar pacáiste Sábháil na Beacha ó Supervalu Ireland! Tá Supervalu ag déanamh a seacht ndícheall chun todhchaí na bithéagsúlachta in Éirinn agus na beacha a shabháíl. Táimid ag bailiú na cártaí ó Supervalu chun cabhrú linn an cairt bhailiúcháin don bhalla a líonadh! Nuair atá an chairt líonta againn d'fhéadfaimis cur isteach ar chuid de chiste 50,000 a bhuachaint. Bigí ag faire amach do na cártaí nuair atá sibh ag siopadóireacht!

Did you know that bees pollinate a third of our food? unfortunately 30% of the bees in Ireland are in endangered! This week we received a Save the Bees package from Supervalu Ireland! Supervalu are doing excellent work to save Ireland’s Bees and biodiversity. As part of the package we are collecting cards from Supervalu to help fill a wall chart. Once the chart is full we can apply to win a share of 50,000 for our school! If you are shopping and get these cards, bring them into school to add to our collection chart!
