Scríobh Leabhar Project 2018-19
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!

The Choose Safety Programme is designed to prepare young people for the world of work and work experience. Transition Year and Senior Cycle students can explore core principles of health and safety as they may apply in their current or future places of work. Choose Safety can be taught as a structured 20 hour programme or teachers may select units from the Programme to cover specific topics as desired and/or integrate them into other subjects in the classroom.
Choose Safety will be of interest to teachers involved in a whole range of subjects including: Science, Agricultural Science, Business or subjects of a more practical base. The Programme is available in English and as Gaeilge. All resources for this Programme are available to all Post Primary schools, PLC's and Colleges of Further Education, free of charge.
