Seachtain Na Gaeilge
Here in Threen N.S we celebrated Seachtain Na Gaeilge by participating in a number of fun activities. A local dance teacher called to the school to teach some Irish dancing to both the pupils and the adults. The children really enjoyed the dancing lessons and some of the children who attend dancing lesson showed us some of their fantastic skills as they performed a couple of jigs and reels.
We also had jelly and ice-cream to help celebrate seachtain na Gaeilge. Some of the children along with Mary made green and gold jelly and this was accompanied with some vanilla ice-cream which helped to create the Irish tricolour. The jelly and ice-cream was delicious and all the children really enjoyed it.
Finally to complete our Seachtain na Gaeilge activities the children took part in a Tráth na gceist. Every child in the school took part with the teams consisting of a mixture of both older and younger pupils. There were four rounds of ceisteanna and two teams finished level at the end of the quiz. Well done to both teams.
