Beidh Fleadh Chontae Roscomáin ar siúl ag an gCáisc. Beidh comórtaisí ann don amhránaíocht, ceol uirlíse agus comhrá Gaeilge. Má tá suim ag do pháiste páirt a ghlacadh ann abair liom roimh an sos lár téarma.
County Roscommon Fleadh takes place in Castlecoote/Fuerty over the Easter bank holiday weekend. There will be competitions for children in solo singing, music (individual/duets/trios) and comhrá Gaeilge (Irish conversation). If you would like your child to take part please speak to me before the mid-term and I can advise which competition may suit and I can get you an entry form. Late entries will not be accepted by the County Fleadh committee.

4. Ranganna fidil
Tá suim ag roinnt páistí sa scoil i ranganna fidil. Táimid ag eagrú múinteora i láthair na huaire ach ba mhaith linn fios a bheith againn cé mhéad páistí le suim.
We feel that there is some interest in fiddle classes being provided as an after-school activity in the school. We have a fiddle teacher interested and we would like to know how many children would be interested in such classes. Please contact the school by phone or e-mail if your child is interested in fiddle lessons after school.

5. Stephanie
Go n-éirí le Stephanie. Beidh sí ag dul ar thaithí oibre ar feadh 10 seachtaine ón Luan. Beidh sí ar ais arís i mhí Bealtaine. Beidh Bernie ag cabhrú san oifig agus beidh na múinteoirí ag cabhrú leis an gclub obair bhaile.
Best wishes to Stephanie. She will be leaving us for ten weeks to do her teaching practise. She will be back again at the start of May. Bernie will be filling in for some of her hours and teachers will take the homework club.

6. Young Scientist – Primary Science Fair
Ghlac rang a 5 agus rang a 6 páirt in san Primary Science Fair i Luimneach le deanaí lena dtionscnamh “What is the best way to make slime?” Bhain rang a 5 agus 6 an- taitneamh as an Primary Science Fair agus d’fhoghlaim siad go leor agus iad ann.
Fifth and sixth class pupils from Gaelscoil de hÍde recently took part in the Primary Science Fair in Limerick, with their project“ What is the best way to make slime?” This was a very enjoyable experience for the children as they got to present their project to teachers and pupils from other schools as well as the judges. The children also got an opportunity to look at the other participating schools projects which was a great experience and which gave them great ideas for future projects. The judges gave very positive feedback, and we were lucky enough that one of our judges was Dr Jennifer Byrne the current Rose Of Tralee. The children received a plaque for their work for the Science Fair. They thoroughly enjoyed their day and learnt a great deal from the experience.

7. One good idea
Roghnaíodh rang Múinteoir Laoise chun páirt a ghlacadh ins an tionscnamh “One good idea” An aidhm atá ann ná chun a léiriú do dhaoine an tábhacht a bhaineann le fuinneamh a shábháil. Go n-éirí leo ina n-iarrachtaí.
Múinteoir Laoise’s class have been selected to take part in the One Good Idea project to help save energy and tackle climate change. Their entry revolves around a rap on this theme and they are launching a creative awareness campaign about saving energy. Their campaign aims to show people in the community how their One Good Idea can make a difference to them, their pocket and our planet.
