Gaelbhratach.

Scoil Carmel is delighted to be taking part in the Gaelbhratach scheme. It is a two year scheme at the end of which the school will receive a Gaelbhratach- a flag for speaking Irish!

The scheme is run by Gael Linn, Foras na Gaeilge and Colaiste Phadraig.

The aim of the scheme is to get everyone speaking more Irish-pupils, teachers and parents.

Parents, why not try the website  www.irishforparents.ie  for help in improving your Irish?

The staff has completed two very worthwhile workshops which will help improve the use of Gaeilge Neamhfhoirmiuil in the school.
