Presentation to children who took part in Scríobh Leabhar too place in the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise on March 11th.
Our school was one of the 9 English medium schools from our region (Laois, Offaly and North Tipperary) who took part again this year. The Scríobh Leabhar is a a relatively new initiative and our school has taken part since its introduction. It links the curricular areas of Visual Arts and Gaeilge while also promoting integration with practically every other area for teacher and pupil. It is a particularly valuable tool for teachers to develop pupil creative writing and oral language skills “as Gaeilge”.
