Seachtain Na Scoileanna Caitliceacha – Catholic Schools Week 2015

Beidh Seachtain Na Scoileanna Caitliceacha á cheiliúradh ar feadh na seachtaine anseo. Tugann an ceiliúradh bliantúil den oideachas Caitliceach seo deis dúinn ar fad, bheith feasach ar an gcion tairbhe uathúil a dhéanann na scoileanna don tsochaí Éireannach. Is é téama na bliana seo ná Scoileanna Caitliceacha: Gairm Fhreastail.

All this week, our school will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week. This annual celebration of Catholic education gives us all the opportunity to be more aware of the unique contribution that our Catholic schools make to Irish life. Our theme this year is Catholic Schools: Called to Serve.

Seachtain na Scoileanna Caitliceacha – Catholic Schools Week 2014


Roghnaíodh an téama An Scoil Chaitliceach: Lárionad Creidimh agus Foghlama don bhliain 2014 chun aird a dhíriú ar an bhfíoras go dtarlaíonn an t-oideachas i gcomhthéacs na mbunluachanna fiúntais. Ciallaíonn sé seo go gcaithfear luachanna fiúntais a mhúineadh, agus ní oideachas é bheith ag scaipeadh fíoras. I rith Sheachtain na Scoileanna Caitliceacha beidh féiniúlacht á chomóradh ag na scoileanna Caitliceacha.

Catholic Schools: Places of Faith and Learning was chosen as the theme for 2014 to highlight that all learning takes place in a values context. This means that all education involves an education in values; in other words, education is never simply about transmitting simple facts. During CSW, Catholic schools will celebrate their identity.

My First Holy Communion

On Sunday I did my First Holy Communion. We had lots of things to do before the big day. We had to do prayers and do lots of practices. Liam did it as well. My Mom’s friend came up and did my hair. When it was finished it was lovely. Then I put on my dress and Mom said I looked fantastic. When I went to the church, my teacher said I looked fabulous. After mass we took lots of pictures. Then we all went to the community centre and had lots of yummy sweets. After we went to Gateway and Liam went to the hotel. We had a great day.

Ar an Domhnach bhí an Coineartú ag mo dheathair. Ar a dó dheag a chlog chuaigh mé ar Aifrean. Tar eis an Aifrinn chuaigh mé go dtí an óistan. Bhi sé an mhaith. D’ith mé pasta agus cáca cháis. Bhi sé go hailainn.

Tar eis an óistan chuaigh mé go dtí teach tabhairne. Bhí séspóirt againn. Chonaic mé mo aintín agus mo cholceathar Ciara. Chuaigh me abhaile ar a dó dheag a chlog.

Tá an lá go hiontach.

Lá Spioradálta

Today I had an amazing day with Sister Patricia. We were all very excited and we were waiting for her all week so when she came we were extra excited. We did alot of cool stuff.

First we unscrambled the words that another school made and then we made an amazing jigsaw. It was so cool and we all put alot of work into it. It was bad when we all had to break it up. 🙁

After that we had an  auction. It was great I had €700 but I did not buy anything. Orla and Ava had lots of money they had over €1,000 they bought something.

After break when we came back into the middle room the blinds were closed, the lights wee off and we sat down one by one very gently. It was lovely we had a little bit of quiet time and in the end we said a lovely prayer.I had an amazing day and I know I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.
