Seachtain na Gaeilge 2017

We will be celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge here in RALET next week March 6th – 10th. The children across all classes will be participating in lots of fun activities in Irish such as treasure hunts, quizzes, Irish dancing, board games and bingo. Pupils can earn a ‘ticéad glas’ for making an extra effort to use Irish informally, and there will be a daily raffle with prizes. Children can make up poems or raps in Irish and recite them over the intercom. The whole school will be learning the Cups Song (Amhrán na gCupán) over the course of the week and we will sing it in the yard on Friday as part  of ‘Lá Glas’. We will be speaking ‘as Gaeilge’ during yard on Friday and some of our musically talented pupils will perform at a short recital on Lá Glas. Children are invited to wear green on the day and we hope to finish off the week with some films and TV shows in Irish. Tá siúl againn go mbainfidh na páistí taitneamh as!

Festive Assembly

On the 21st of December, the senior classes went to the hall for an assembly. Before it officially began, we watched a video of Newgrange during the solstice. At the first part, we had a lecture about winter holidays for people of all different religions. The next chunk of time in the hall was not as serious. Various classes sang songs and recited poems and one class put on a play for us, starring our old mascot, Sillias Sock. Some of the lucky winners of the raffle were announced, and if they were in one of the junior classes, we had to collect them from their classes to choose their prize. After the assembly, the yard schedule was all messed up. However, it was all worth it to hear so many uplifting songs and powerful poetry and of course, the puppet show. It was a great day!

Sam Maguire Returns to RaLET

Sam Maguire returned to our school for another visit, after Dublin beat Mayo this year to become All-Ireland Champions for the 4th time in six years. What an amazing achievement!!! Con O’Callaghan came along to the school to show off the trophy and answer some questions that the GAA team had prepared for him. Well done Con, best of luck next season. Can we do it three times in a row?!?!
