A thuismitheoirí,

I mbliana, táimid ag glacadh páirt i ‘Gaelbhratach’, – Scéim do na Bunscoileanna.

This year 2016/2017, our school is participating in an Irish Flag Award Scheme for Primary Schools.

Táimid ag lorg cúpla tuismitheoirí le haighaidh “An Coiste Gaeilge”.

We are looking for some parents to take part in the “Irish Committee”.

Beidh an Coiste déanta suas le páistí, múinteoirí agus tuismitheoirí.

The committee will be made up of children, teachers and parents.

It means coming together for maybe 15/20 minutes once/twice a term to discuss how to enhance Gaeilge in St. Colman’s.

Bígí linn más féidir.

Bígí ag fáire amach le haghaidh an nóta atá ag dul abhaile inniu.

We invite all parents to the commemoration.
