Ceiliúrady Cainte.
Mar chuid de Bhliain na Gaeilge, thógamar páirt i gCeiliúradh Cainte – lá Gaeilge ar Dé Céadaoin an 17ú Aibreán 2013 ar son na carthanachta Headstrong, a dhéanann sláinte intinne daoine óga a chur chun cinn. Thóg níos mó na 240 daltaí páirt sa lá. Bhain na daltaí agus na múinteoirí go léir taitneamh as an lá. Go raibh míle maith agaibh as bhur dtacaíocht.

On the 17th of April 240 students took part in an Irish day to raise money for Headstrong which promotes young people’s mental health. The day was enjoyed by all. Thanks to everyone for their support. Ms. McCarville.
