Seachtain na Gaeilge 2017

What an exciting week we have had at Holy Family Senior School for Seachtain na Gaeilge

Yellow Flag Update

The Yellow Flag initiative is ongoing this year in Holy Family, building on the initial work carried out in 2016 in which we held Multicultural Day, among other events. This year we are continuing our commitment to diversity and multiculturalism by having a number of different ongoing initiatives which have strengthened our community spirit.

Active Schools Update

Active School Flag

After the great success of the 10 @ 10 on the 10th of February for RTE's Operation Transformation Programme as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge we will continue this initiative for the week as gaeilge during school. In Term 3 after the Easter break we will recommence our morning walk/run for ten minutes before the school bell rings.
