Bua ag Joe’s i gcomórtas Fichelle!

A team of eight boys from 4th, 5th and 6th went to a chess competition in St Marie of the Isle last Friday. They performed brilliantly and came home as winners of the city schools chess shield!

Comhgairdeas buachaillí Táimmid an bhródúil as sibh. We are delighted with your success but also with the way you behave every time you go out and represent our school. 

This was a wonderful occasion as it was the first schools' chess competition since since the pandemic began and we are very grateful to the great work of St Marie's of the Isle for organising such a well run tournament and giving our boys this opportunity.

Bronnadh an Ghaelbhrahach i Scoil Iosef Naofa

Bhí ceiliúradh ar siúl i Scoil Iosef Naofa Déardaoin 23ú Meitheamh chun bronnadh brat an Ghaelbhratach a chomóradh. Sa scéim atá á reáchtáil ag Gael Linn, déanann na scoileanna rannpháirteacha bearta chun úsáid na Gaeilge labhartha a chur chun cinn ar bhealach gníomhach taitneamhach. Cuireadh tús leis in 2019 agus bhí pobal na scoile uile páirteach ann: baill foirne, daltaí, teaghlaigh agus múinteoirí cuairte.


Reáchtáil an scoil searmanas taobh amuigh den bhronntanas an bhratach. Ghabh siad buíochas leis an bhfoireann as gach rud a rinne siad agus thug siad an-áthas do na scoláirí agus na tuismitheoirí a chuidigh go mór leis an choiste agus a rinne an oiread sin oibre laistigh den scoil. Le cúpla bliain anuas d’eagraigh buachaillí an choiste Seachtain na Gaeilge, thaispeáin siad do na buachaillí is óige conas cluichí teanga a imirt sa chlós, léigh cuid acu fiú leabhair dá chéile thar Zoom! Treoraíonn siad go hiontach trí eiseamláir agus rinne siad an tionscadal iomlán níos brí agus níos éifeachtaí ná mar a d’fhéadfadh sé a bheith riamh agus na múinteoirí amháin á chur chun cinn. Ní neart go cur le chéile!


Labhair roinnt dár ndaltaí faoin gcuid is fearr leo den tionscnamh agus roinn siad na rudaí is suimiúla a d’fhoghlaim siad ar an mbealach. Chríochnaigh siad tionscadail ar fheasacht teanga agus mionteangacha, d’fhoghlaim siad conas Amhrán na bhFiann agus roinnt pop-amhráin i nGaeilge a chanadh. Mhéadaigh úsáid na Gaeilge timpeall na scoile agus bhí na buachaillí an-dearfach faoi.

Tháinig an-gháir ar an lá nuair a fógraíodh go mbeadh píotsa ar fáil do gach duine sa scoil, duais tuillte go maith tar éis blianta ag obair i dtreo an éacht seo.
