Concern Debating Competition

In a recent virtual showdown organised by the charity Concern and facilitated by the Galway Education Centre, our school's debate team took centre stage to tackle the motion, "Homework is a thing of the past." Well done to the the team who  have been very busy over the last number of weeks researching, preparing and practising for the debate.  They argued that homework not only reinforces classroom learning but also fosters discipline, time management, and a sense of responsibility among students. Throughout the debate, our speakers engaged in a lively exchange with their counterparts who supported the motion.  The Galway Education Centre commended both teams for their spirited arguments, highlighting the importance of such debates.   We wish Briarhill National School's Fifth Class the very best of luck going forward in the competition!

Happy Halloween

Ollie Curtin called to visit us with his greyhound. We were delighted to hear all about his diet, training schedule and greyhound racing. We are looking forward to the 11th of November and supporting Ardrahan Camogie Club in their fundraising efforts.  The children looked fantastic in their Halloween costumes. It was lovely looking at all the costumes during the parade on yard. Well done to everyone for putting in a great effort.  Bhíomar ag imirt cluichí sa rang inniu. Bhí focail agus pictiúir Ghaeilge againn agus cheangail muid iad le chéile. Ansin, labhramar abairtí Gaeilge leis an bhfoclóir Oíche Shamhna. Oíche Shamhna shona daoibh!
