Coirm, Gael Linn

Ghlac páistí na scoile, ó rang 3-6,  páirt i gCoirm Gael linn, ar an 23ú  Márta, leis an dráma, An Gorta Mór. Thug an moltóir, Liam Mac a Mhaoir ard- mholadh do na páistí agus bhronn sé trí ghradam orthu. Bhíomar lán sásta leis an lá iontach a bhí againn .

Tá sé mar aidhm ag Coirm lucht bunscoile a spreagadh le seó I nGaeilge a chur ar an ardán a léireoidh na tallanna éagsúla atá ag daltaí na scoile

Déanfaimid gach iarracht sa scoil,    meas agus spéis na bpáistí sa Ghaeilge  a neartú.

When Covid-19 reached our shores we became part of a living history and so began our long journey of lockdown and social distancing,

Initially we hoped it would be for two weeks but this led into months

The Corona Virus Pandemic challenged us to respond innovatively to ensure that we maintained a link with our pupils. Thankfully we maintained daily con- tact through Zoom classes and video calls. Everyone responded and in many ways the Pandemic brought us together in a new way.

When we returned to school in September 2020, we felt it was important to allow the pupils to express their thoughts and feelings on the Lockdown.

We hope that this booklet will showcase the work our pupils did during lock- down and also their memories of it and will give you an insight into how the pupils in Ballinure N.S felt about the lockdown and how it impacted on their lives.
