20140308-IMG_6660What an amazing night of fun and laughter and all for a great cause.  Simple words or pictures cannot adequately describe the night.  Those who were there agreed that it will be a long time before the memories will fade.

All proceeds of the night were for the Fingal Dyslexia Workshop which is run in St. Oliver Plunkett School and serves children from our school and the greater Fingal area.  The proceeds will help to fund resources for the children attending, including a set of iPads which will be shared among the students.Organisers of this event, Katie Doyle, Fiona Gavin  20140308-IMG_6632  The Tuesday Night Workshop provides  wonderful service for children and teenagers with Dyslexia.

Fiona Garvin and Katie Doyle , who are the co-ordinator of the Workshop and main organisers of the event, thanked all who had supported the event in any way and said that a great night was had by participants and spectators alike.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

photo(5)Dia Dhaoibh go léir ó halla na scoile. Bhí an lá againn inniu.Bhí céilí mór ar siúl sa halla i rith an lae agus bhí an craic ann.

You would be forgiven for thinking the leprechauns had taken over today as so many children came in costume to celebrate the end of a wonderful Seachtain na Gaeilge and St. Patrick’s day. It was a great week with the children (and parents) photo(7)putting all of their frásaí into practice. It was wonderful to see the Irish language alive and well in St. Oliver Plunkett School. We had quizzes, treasure hunts, PE lessons, art classes, concerts, plays and lots more all trí gaeilge. Thank you to all the mams and dads for all your support and encouragement.

Ní neart go cur le chéile!

Have a great St. Patrick’s Day.

Seachtain Na Gaeilge 10 – 14 Márta

shamrockSeachtain Na Gaeilge  10 – 14 Márta – Bígí ag caint!

The children are engaged in lots of activities “as Gaeilge” throughout this week. The hall and classrooms have been decorated with children’s artwork illustrating different sean-fhocail.  Can you remember any?

Nuair a bhíonn an cat amuigh, bíonn na lucha ag rince.

Níl aon tinteán ná do thinteán féin.

Ar muin na muice.

Every class will get an opportunity to use the Gaeilge apps on the i-Pads during the week. The teachers will be encouraging the children to use their Frásaí na Seachtaine and Mr Curran will visit  every classroom in a quest to find “An rang is fearr sa scoil”.

During the week the children will get an opportunity to do some of their lessons “as Gaeilge”, subjects like ealaín, corp-oideachas agus ceol.

On Tuesday the classes and choirs that performed so beautifully last week at the Corfhéile na Scoileanna will sing for the school.

The 6th classes are eagerly looking forward to the first ever “Tráth na gCéist” in the hall on Tuesday morning. Go n-éirí libh.

********Lá Glas ar an Aoine agus an Céilí Mór!********

The highlight of the week will be on Friday when the children will wear their “éadaí glas” (green clothes) and there will be a Céilí Mór sa halla.

Beidh a lán cluichí , spóirt agus spraoi ag na páistí i rith na Seachtaine. Tá súil agam go mbainfidh siad go léir an-taithneamh as an tseachtain.

Handmade Rosettes For Sale

Photo of rosettesWe have a long association with the sisters in the Star of the Sea Convent in Seapark. Our First Holy Communion children meet the sisters as prayer friends and enjoy visiting them in the convent in the lead up to their big day. Our choirs  also love to perform their Christmas Carols in the convent chapel each year.

The sisters have made a selection of rosettes for Confirmation, First Holy Communion and St. Patrick’s Day. They can be ordered with a medal or without, as many families have their own medals. Prices range from €1.50 for the simple badge to €4.00 for the rosette with medal. They may be ordered through the school office.
