Seachtain Na Gaeilge
Tá an-chuid á reachtáil faoi láthair sa Choláiste don seachtain speisialta seo chun an Ghaeilge a chur ar aghaidh le linn Seachtain na Gaeilge. Tá atmaisféar deimhnitheach á chothú, níos mó Gaeilge le cloisint timpeall na háite agus imeachtaí ar nós seisiún ceoil traidisiúnta, tráth na gceist, agus comórtaisí póstaera á chur faoi bhun.
Seachtain na Gaeilge is in full swing at the moment with a number of events taking place in different classrooms such as quizzes, poster competitions, and traditional irish music sessions all as Gaeilge. Students are to be heard in the corridors ag úsáid ‘an cúpla focal’ and all are positively rowing in behind this unique week to promote and embrace the Irish Language!
A Programme choice meeting and Subject choice meeting was held last Thursday in our school library for 3rd year and 4th year students. The varying Programmes were outlined by Programme Co-ordinator Ms. Conroy, and Guidance teacher Mr. O’Brien. This well attended event by students and parents proved to be most informative and beneficial for all those aspiring towards senior cycle education in undertaking the options available such as established Leaving Cert., LCA, Transition Year, and LCVP. Parents with any further queries should contact Ms. Wallace, Mr. O’Brien, or Ms. Conroy.
Congratulations is extended to our students who did us proud in winning the Intermediate category of the North Tipperary Student Enterprise County Awards held recently in Nenagh. The project entitled ‘A & J Scrolls’ was compiled by Patrick Hackett, Jennien O’Gorman, and Aaron Wort. Runners’ up in this competition was ‘the Baker’s Cousin’ by David Morris and Nicholas O’Halloran. The winners will now advance to the county final stage where we wish them all the best.
