Seachtain na Gaeilge in Rang a Sé

Bhaineamar an sult as Seachtain na Gaeilge sa Rang Marie agus Rang Sue. Bhíomar ag imirt cluichí Gaeilge, ag canadh agus ag damhsa le chéile agus chaitheamar a lán t-am le linn na seachtaine ag cleachtadh ár gcuid Gaeilge le chéile.  Seachtain iontach a bhí againn. Féach ar na griangraif agus bain taitneamh as!
