Maidin iontach as we celebrated Seachtain Na Gaeilge with the whole school via Zoom. Mrs/ McCarthy invited each class to recite an Irish poem. We listened to Kate Commins and Anna Davey 5th class, Ms. Smith playing a Kerry Polka, and we listened to Ciara Oliver on Concertina and Taiya McCann on banjo, 6th class Ms. Deegan, playing some Irish music. Bhí siad GO H-IONTACH! The prize winners in the poster competition were announced – difficult decision to choose just one from each class though!
Táimíd ag céiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge ón 8ú Márta – 19ú Márta 2021. Tá alán gníomhaíochtaí eagraithe againn ar Seesaw, Zoom, sa bhaile agus ar scoil i rith na Seachtaine.

Below is the list of Green Girls for this year 2020/21. Green Girls play an important role in maintaining our current flags and helping the school to work towards it’s next flag. Belgrove Senior Girls’ School currently holds five Green School flags. They are Litter and Waste, Energy, Water, Travel and Biodiversity. Our school is due to work towards our next flag, Global Citizenship- Litter and Waste, but we have decided to put it on hold for this current school year and focus on maintaining our current flags. Girls are encouraged to reduce waste and recycle where possible. It is also fantastic to see so many girls and teachers walking, scooting, cycling and skateboarding to school this year. Maith sibh, and keep up the good work everybody! Due to government directed school closures in March, the Green School Committee did not get a chance to raise our 5th flag so we hope to do this soon with a small, socially distant ceremony.

Belgrove Senior Girls’ School continues to support the SVP Giving Tree appeal this year. We are calling on you once again to contribute to this very worthy appeal. Although we will have our Giving Tree setup in the School Corridor to promote the SVP Virtual Toy appeal, unfortunately we will be unable to collect gifts through the school.
Please see below how to contribute to the SVP Virtual Christmas Food and Toy Appeal.
Thank you so much for thinking of SVP and the people we help at this time of year. So many things will be different for us all this Christmas but some things like presents under the tree and a festive dinner need to stay the same.
Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, we have had to make some changes this year. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept donations of physical toys and food, as we cannot guarantee we would be able to deliver them safely to families in time for Christmas.
But this year, more than ever, we still need your help to make sure that children and families have what they need to share in the magic of the season. We are asking people to support families by taking part in our Virtual Gift or Food Appeal.
To take part in our Virtual Gift Appeal, you can go to the SVP website and buy a voucher for someone that can be used in your local community. Just select who you would like to buy the voucher for and the area you’d like it to be used in.
We are partnering with the Irish company Me2You Gift Cards, who will be providing the vouchers that can be used across a wide range of retail outlets.
