St. Helen's have been celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this week.
The children have been learning about traditional Irish dancing with our Irish Dancing teacher Ms. Bolton. The Junior Infants and Second Class took part in a 'Ceili' together. The Senior Infants and First class had the pleasure of watching an 'Irish dancing Presentation' by some of our own pupils, past and present.
We also had a great drama from by Grainne Jordan called 'An Tuar Ceatha Cailte'. The Children really enjoyed the brilliant mix of Irish and English along with lots of funny jokes and catchy Irish songs
A fantastic group from Comhaltas came to our school on Wednesday. They showed us their instruments and we listened and clapped along to all the wonderful music. Three of our own students and one of our teachers also joined in.
