Scríobh Leabhar Project 2018-19

FnG

SL

 

Offered in conjunction with Foras na Gaeilge, the Scríobh Leabhar Project aims to awaken children's interest in Irish language books, by encouraging them to design and write their own books as Gaeilge. Students can write about any theme or topic which is relevant for the school or local environment. Once we receive all of the books we will arrange a swapping of books so that all children can read books from another school, of a similar age group. While there are no overall winners chosen, one or two students per class are selected to receive a 'Gradam' Award. As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, we will host our Awards Ceremony on the 12th March 2019, with special guests and ceol agus craic den scoth!

 

Important Scríobh Leabhar Dates

Friday 19th October 2018 Closing Date for Registration
Thursday 6th December 2018 Bring books to Centre for swapping
Week of 7th January 2019 Week of collection of books to read and choose 'Gradam' winners
