Well done to our five girls from the senior room who took part in the Cuman na mBunscoil Division 3 blitz this week in Corofin. The team was made up of girls from Fanore NS, Ballyvaughan NS, Carron NS and New Quay NS. They played 3 games, winning one and almost winning a second. Thank you to the trainers and parents to brought the girls and supported them.

Creative Schools

May 12th, 2022

We had our final session this week with Katerina Gribkoff from the Burren College of Art. During her time with us, we have learnt how to forage for plants and make dyes from them, we have looked to the plants and flowers growing around us for inspiration and we have created our own sketches, painted using these natural dyes. The final paintings, which can be seen below, will be exhibited as part of Cruinniú na nóg at the Burren College of Art on Saturday 11th of June.

An Bosca Leabhalainne

February 11th, 2022

 

The school were delighted this week to be chosen to receive An Bosca Leabharlainne, a box of original Irish language books specially chosen by Laureat na nÓg, Áine Ní Ghlinn. An Bosca Leabharlainne is supported by Foras na Gaeilge and the Arts Council of Ireland and focusses on encouraging children to read as Gaeilge for pleasure. The books are beautifully written and illustrated and cater for a range of ages. We look forward to digging into some good books.
