Comenius Week
   June 9th - 13th, 2003


next

Our next visit was to the Gaelscoil in Mahon.
Here we were greeted by Martina who helped
us with the rhyming verse in our Diarmuid agus
Gráinne CD. The Principal, Íde, took us on a
tour of the school. The visitors were enthralled
 with the music, song and dance which was
 provided for them by these children who are
 taught through Irish.

 The visiting teachers were particularly interested
in the role of the Irish language in the lives of our
 children. Their adaptation of the well-known
 fairytale, Goldilocks and the three bears, was
a particular favourite. This was translated and
 brought up to date by Martina. Excellent work
 which we all enjoyed so much.
