See you later, alligator!

June is a time when we say a lot of goodbyes. For some it’s a short goodbye, we’ll see them again in September for others they are moving on to bigger and better things, but they know they’re always welcome back in Adamstown, so let’s just say see you later!!

Raising Money for Crumlin

IMG_20170602_091813338
In December, the school with the help of the student council raised over €1000 for Crumlins children hospital.

Throughout the week  various activities were organised such as, ‘sponsored silences’.
skipathon,  and Funny/Christmas jumpers. We also had teachers and children busking at the school gates each afternoon.

The parents association also organised a movie night, where children brought their pillows and duvets and wore their pajamas to school and a cake sale was organised.

Today people from Crumlin Children’s hospital came to the school to thank us for the great work we all did and tell us a little more about how the money we raised will help the children in Crumlin.

A big thank you again to all those who helped organise and support the cause.

 

Lámh – Lesson 2

Lámh

We here in ACETNS are very passionate about the variety of languages that are spoken in our school.

We as a school have decided to learn a new one and it’s called Lámh.

Lámh  means hand in irish, and it is a simple Irish sign language used to help people communicate.

Lámh- hello

Say ‘Hello’ and make this Lámh sign when greeting people

Here are two videos of Colette teaching the children and teachers in our school Lámh.

We hope you can follow our video lessons each week and use Lámh with us in the school.
