TG4 Cúla 4 Ar Scoil

While the programming is aimed at children attending Gaelscoileanna, it is equally beneficial for all children for some Gaeilge lessons. The programmes are divided into different sections aimed at different age groups as can be seen from the lesson plans in the screenshot above. The shows are broadcast daily on TG4 at 10.00 Monday to Friday but can also be accessed on Youtube or on the Cula 4 Ar Scoil Player at https://www.cula4.com/en/shows/cula4-ar-scoil/ (Tip: scroll down to the bottom of the page to access different episodes.)

Christmas Giving Update

Thank you so much to those of you who have made such generous donations to our Christmas Giving Appeal for those in need in our area. It means so much at a time of year which can be so hard for some while teaching our children that through giving, even in the smallest ways we also feel better. We are continuing to collect up to December 3rd so if you want to contribute that would be fantastic. The children can drop their items or money donations to the Parents Room in the morning. We are taking hats, gloves, scarves, new toys or even 2euro. Thanks again, Aine, HSCL   ...

Cookery

Recently some Parents took part in a cookery programme held within the school. The parents made some beautiful butternut squash soup and tasty brown bread, Chicken Risotto, Scones and lots more mouth-watering dishes. They even had time to make some very tasty Apple Crumble too. Thanks to the parents for coming in. Well done to all involved. We will be running a Cookery course named ‘Healthy Food Made Easy’ in January. If you are interested in this course, please contact me on 0862287167 or you’ll find me in the school!
