Maidin mhaith gach duine and welcome to Week 10 of learning from home. 

This week is slightly shorter than usual. As a result there will be no specific Gaeilge vocabulary for this week and while parents are free to utilise Oxford readers to continue independent readers, there will be no prescribed reading for this week only.

Check out the latest 'Learning from home' video, that is filled with pictures and videos of our wonderful students!
