Junior Spider Awards!

As you may have noticed, my blog has been shortlisted for an Eircom Junior Spider award! It is shortlisted under Best Project. This means I get to go to Google's  European Headquarters in Dublin on the 29th of April! Im sure there will plenty of exciting things happening there so I'll be sure to keep you posted on that. I will be going with Eilis, who's blog was also nominated under best concept and also Mrs L and some of the girls from Radio TY, as we have also been nominated for an award for our TY Radio blog: I was so happy to be shortlisted and to have another classmate shortlisted also is fantastic! (Go Tabei! :p) And then to have Radio TY up for an award is great too as I have been involved with that from the start and I think its a really great idea. Best of luck to everyone who is up for an award; check out the shortlist here for some really cool blogs.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Last week was 'Seachtain na Gaeilge' and for the past few weeks, my class, Tabei, has been practicing a play called 'Trúir Amadáin' which literally translates as the three idiots. We've had great fun practicing for it in class and were in tears laughing at the fabulous farmer outfits and hair do's. The first years and a TY class came down to watch it and seemed to enjoy it!

We had Lá Glas on Friday and we were all dressed up in green, and had the craic in the school hall while watching people parade along in their farmer and leprechaun costumes. We then had a lovely long weekend to finish off a fantastic week of gaeilge and craic.

Slán libh a chairde,

Lauren :)
