World Down Syndrome Day

aFPgp7y18n3z6xDU.jpgMarch 21st marks the 10th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day. To celebrate World Down Syndrome Day this year, Down Syndrome Ireland is encouraging people to get involved in raising money or creating awareness by wearing odd socks on March 21st  and posting a ‘footsie’ (foot selfie) on social media using the #Footsie4DSI hashtag and or make a €2 donation by texting DSI to 50300.

Everyone in Scoil Chill Ruadhain had great fun taking part in World Down Syndrome Day. We wore odd socks to raise money and speakers from Down Syndrome Ireland came to speak to the children. Well done to all involved!


Solar Eclipse

The school gathered together this morning to witness the partial eclipse of the sun. We were all careful not to look directly at the sun. Some of the children made special glasses and camera boxes to use during the eclipse.

Ceolchoirm Gaelach

Bhí ceolchoirm iontach againn Dé Luain. Chuaigh gach rang suas ar an stáitse chun drámaíocht a dhéanamh agus amhráin a chanadh. Bhí ceoilteoirí agus rinceoirí again chomh maith! Bualadh bos mór do gach éinne!

Céilí Mór!

Bhí céilí againn sa halla i rith na seachtaine. Bhain na daltaí sult agus spraoi as an damhsa agus an craic!




Extreme Reading!

To celebrate World Book Day 2015, the children have been taking photos of themselves reading in unusual places! Check in again soon to see more photos.
