Jigsaw – Coronavirus and youth mental health

The COVID-19 situation is changing daily. As the current situation evolves so must our response.

While our face-to-face services (at Jigsaw) are temporarily suspended, young people’s mental health remains our top priority. Our clinicians are busy working here developing articles, videos, animations and audio which will be published here regularly. These will all reflect the changing environment we’re in, providing information and support for young people, parents and guardians and those working with young people. Click here more

AILO arís!

Léirithe go bhfuil daltaí s’againne i measc cuid de na scoláirí is cliste sa tír Eoin, Sorcha agus Oisín

Gabhaimid comhghairdeas leis na daltaí a ghlac páirt sa chomórtas náisiúnta teangeolaíochta (AILO) agus a bhain gradaim náisiúnta amach: Oisín, Eoin agus Sorcha. Ní hamháin go raibh éacht bainte amach ag an triúr acu ach caithfidh aitheantas speisialta a ghabháil le hOisín agus é ag teacht sa dara háit in Éirinn. Cinnte, tá cuireadh tugtha d’Oisín a bheith ar fhoireann náisiúnta na tíre agus an comórtas idirnáisiúnta le bheith ar siúl i Laitvia i mí Iúil seo chugainn.

We would like to take the opportunity to congratulate participants in the ALL-Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) competition. Eoin, Sorcha and Oisín were recognized as some of the top students in the country in this competition. In fact, Oisín came 2nd place in Ireland and has been invited to be a participant on the national team in the international event scheduled in Latvia in July.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0-uuijhF4Q

Scrúduithe béil ar ceal! Leaving Cert Orals cancelled

Further to the announcement regarding the cancellation of some elements of the Leaving Cert and Junior Cycle exams, the Department of Education have published an FAQ on the impact of this decision for candidates on its website.

You may have seen the decision to cancel parts of this year’s state examinations. Below you’ll find a few questions and answers to try and explain what the changes mean, who is affected by them and why this unprecedented action was taken.

There is no perfect solution to the difficulties our education system is facing as a result of school closures and the impact of measures to stem the spread of Covid-19. But these decisions are being taken with the best interests of students and their families in mind. We know that this is a time of real stress and worry for you. In making the decisions we wanted to try and ease that worry. READ MORE

Lé Chéile @TechFéile

Slua mór ó Choláiste an Eachréidh ag TechFéile arís i mbliana.

Bhí Coláiste an Eachréidh i measc 20 scoil a d’fhreastail ar Techféile coicís ó shin ag aerphort na Sionna.

Bhíodar i mbun cláracha raidió a chur le chéile, píosaí ceoil nua-cumtha a thaifeadadh, ag cruthú códanna úrnua, i mbun eagarthóireachta ar fhíseáin, ag troid le róbait, ag dearadh íomhánna 3D agus go leor eile. Cinnte bhí deis acu dul i ngleic leis an bogearraí agus crua-earraí is déanaí ó thaobh na teicneolaíochta is na ríomhaireachta.

Mar aon leis an mhéid sin, bhí siamsaíocht curtha ar fáil dóibh agus Grooveline is USHMUSH i mbun ceoil dóibh. Cinnte, beidh an ghlúin seo réidh do na dúshláin nua-aimseartha rompu san 21ú hAois.

Coláiste an Eachréidh students recently attended Techféile and had the opportunity of learning a wide range of technical computer skills. They were learning and providing entertainment while being entertained themselves. Nach aoibhinn beatha an Scoláire!

Glas na Gaeilge

Bhí spórt maith ag daltaí ar son Sheachtain na Gaeilge

Bhí deis ag daltaí i gColáiste an Eachréidh roinnt imeachtaí a eagrú mar cheiliúradh ar Sheachtain na Gaeilge. Ar mhaithe leis an ócáid a cheiliúradh mar phobal scoile, bhí idir mhúinteoirí agus daltaí gléasta glas. Lena chois sin, bhí beagnach trí chéad duine amuigh ag rith nó ag siúl mórthimpeall Bhaile Átha an Rí agus is cinnte gur tharraing siad aird an phobail orthu féin dá bharr. Cuireadh clabhsúr leis an imeacht seo agus Ceilí Mór ar siúl in halla na scoile.

Mar aon leis an mhéid sin, d’eagraigh Cumann Óige Átha an Rí imeacht speisialta Filíocht Bheo ina raibh daltaí idirbhliana ag aithris idir fhilíocht agus amhránaíocht ó liosta na Sraithe Sóisearaigh. Caithfidh a rá go raibh rogha leathan filíochta agus amhránaíochta curtha de ghlanmheabhair ag na daltaí seo. Caithfidh a admháil go raibh cuid de na hamhráin is na dánta seo cúpla chéad bliain d’aois agus cuid eile nua-aimseartha. Ar ndóigh, bhain an lucht éisteachta (80 dalta ó Ghaelscoil Riabhach) an-sult is tairbhe as a bheith ag éisteacht le hamhráin traidisiúnta, dánta ársa, amhráin pop agus rap fiú.

Lena chois sin, ghlac ceithre fhoireann páirt i gcomórtas Tráth na gCeist do Mheánscoileanna a bhí eagraithe ag Conradh na Gaeilge i mBéal Átha na Slua agus bhí a thuilleadh rannpháirteach i gcomórtas náisiúnta Feachtas i mBaile Átha Cliath. Cinnte, bhí buaiteoirí ina measc chomh maith.

Coláiste an Eachréidh students recently marked Seachtain na Gaeilge dressing up in green and running and walking around Athenry, having a céilí mór, reciting poetry and song during Filíocht Bheo and taking part in quizzes organized by Conradh na Gaeilge and Feachtas. Both staff and students are very proud of being part of a Gaelcholáiste. Beirigí Bua ar son na Gaeilge!

 

 

Eipheil Arís

Idir lucht imeartha agus tacaíochta, tá na cailíní thar a bheith díograiseach.

Bhí idir bhuachaillí agus chailíní sóisearacha gníomhach i gcomórtais eitpheile le deireannas.

Ghlac tuairim is 25 cailín ó Bhliain 1 & 2 páirt i séasúr eitpheile sóisear i mí Eanáir & mí na Feabhra. Bhí blitzchomórtais ag na cailíní i mBaile Locha Riach agus i Ros Comáin le linn an tséasúir. Tá leibhéal spéise san eitpheil i measc na gcailíní ag méadú bliain  i ndiaidh bliana.
Maidir leis na buachaillí sóisearacha, ghlac buachaillí Bliain 1 & 2 páirt i gcomórtas eitpheile sóisear le déanaí. Bhí ardspraoi acu ag imirt i gcoinne foirne ó Ghaillimh, ó chontae an Chláir agus ó Ros Comáin. Léirigh buachaillí Bliain 1 fíorspéis san eitpheil i mbliana agus is comhartha iontach é sin do thodhchaí eitpheil na mBuachaillí sa Choláiste.
Is cinnte go bhfuil díogras na gcailíní agus na buachaillí seo le moladh go hard. Go n-éirí libh.
Both boys and girls had a busy volleyball season of late. Pupils from Bliain 1 & 2 taking part in a range of competitions and showing great promise. Beirigí Bua
