Bhí lá speisialta againn inniu (14ú Samhain) nuair a ghlacamar páirt sa bhfeachtas Gaeilge 24. Feachtas Náisiúnta é seo agus go bhfios dúinn muidne an t-aon dream as Co Liatroma a ghlac páirt.
Bhí páistí na scoile ag roghnú Gaeilge a labhairt ar feadh 24 uair an chloig……Gaeilge an lá ar fad ! Taimid ag iarraidh go mbeidh tusicint ag na daltaí, na tuismitheoirí agus an pobal máguaird gur teanga cumarsáide í an Ghaeilge . Is ábhar scoile í cinnte ach is bealach í chun do ghnó a dhéanamh freisin. Bhíomar ag tabhairt na páistí ar fud an bhaile chun siopadóireacht a fháil;
- Chun stampa a cheannach trí Ghaeilge
- Chun bosca bindealán a cheannach trí Ghaeilge
- Chun pizza a cheannach trí Ghaeilge
- Chun sceallóga a cheannach trí Ghaeilge
- Chun leabhar i nGaeilge a lorg sa siopa leabhar
- Chun cupán tae a ordú sa bhialann
Bhain na daltaí an-taitneamh as an deis seo. Bhí liosta ag gach rang le críochnú agus bhí cead acu soláistí a bheith acu sula ndeachaigh siad ar ais ar scoil. Bhí an-lá againn.
We had a very special day today (14th November) when we took part in Gaeilge 24, a national campaign that is running for 5 years now. We are the only school in Leitrim to partake in it. The children of the school chose to speak Irish for 24 hours …… Irish all day! We wanted the students, the parents and the surrounding community to understand that not only is Irish a subject;it is also a way of communicating in our daily lives and we are so proud that the children and their families took part in this special event. We brought the children around the town so they could speak as Gaeilge to the local community. Each class had a list of tasks to complete and we have to praise the local community for using their cúpla focail and joining in on the event with us. A huge thank you to all the local businesses for being so accommodating. Míle buíochas!
