Seachtain na Gaeilge - Siúlóid Seamróg - Tuesday, 14th March 2023

For today’s celebrations for Seachtain na Gaeilge the whole school were split up into teams and they went on a Siúlóid Seamróg! The teams had to go around and find the shamrocks which had Irish words written on them. When they collected all the words they then had to rearrange them into an Irish sentence… Well done to all the children. As you can see from the photos they had great fun taking part!

Seachtain na Gaeilge

We have been very busy celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge in Kilbride National School. As part of our Seachtain na Gaeilge celebrations we performed the "Haka as Gaeilge" today, Monday the 13th March 2023, as a whole school. Well done to all the girls and boys who did a wonderful performance and above all we had great fun in preparing for our whole school performance today.

Many thanks to Gary Costello and the Stephen Leonard Memorial Cycle committee for organising the First Aid Training for the children in fifth and sixth class.
