The children of fifth and sixth class had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Ryan and Gerry of Human Rights Ireland today. Ryan spoke to the children about the very interest topic of Human Rights and gave them a wealth of information on the 30 Human Rights that each and everyone of us are entitled to. The children watched some videos, engaged in interesting discussion and has the opportunity to interview each other. Without a doubt, we have a new outlook on what Human Rights are and will strive to implement these rights in Scoil an Linbh Íosa to the best of our ability. Many thanks to Ryan and Gerry to coming to visit us today. Below are some photos of the children during the session.

For the past two weeks, all the students have been busy celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge. All the way from Junior Infants up to sixth class, all the children have been making a huge effort to speak Irish. The children from 4th, 5th and 6th also took part in a tráth na gcéist that was an enjoyable way of listening to and understanding Gaeilge. As Seachtain na Gaeilge drew to a close, every pupil gathered in the halla to celebrate with a céilí. The video below shows the fun that everyone had! Bain taitneamh as!
For the past number of weeks, the children of fifth and sixth class have been partaking in an in-house league. This consisted of a number of various teams playing a tournament in which they put all their soccer skills to good use. The children had the opportunity to play numerous games and earn points. The children have really enjoyed their games each week. A huge thank you to Ms. Dunne who has trained the children and ran this soccer league. Below are a few pictures of the children enjoying their games in the sun.
