Lá Glas

March 21st, 2024

As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge the Children celebrated Lá Glas. Each child researched a topic of Irish culture and heritage they were interested in as well as a creative response of their choice. They then presented their projects to the school. We were blown away by the children’s interest and creativity. Projects included animals and plants of Ireland, Irish monuments, myths and legends, famous Irish people and aspects of Irish History. For their creative responses the children played music, created artwork, dioramas and Lego scenes, read as Gaeilge, brought in homemade soda bread and brown bread for the children to sample and more.

As part of Engineer’s Week the children in the senior room were tasked with the challenge of designing a paper airplane.
