Smiles all round at St Joseph’s summer camp

Iúil 10, 2013

Thirty-six students from St. Josephs N.S. in Muirhevnamor celebrated the start of their summer holidays in style as they participated in the week long Irish language Summer Camp, ‘‘Is Fiu, Is Feidir, 2013’’.

The purpose of the summer camp is to help children across Ireland enhance their Irish language skills in a fun, informal way. The school corridors were buzzing all week as the children took part in a wide range of activities including sport, art, drama, music, cooking and many more, through the medium of Irish. The packed schedule of events culminated in a Ceili Mor on Friday to celebrate the tremendous week. The traditional Ceili was given a new lease of life as the children engaged in a ‘Campa Samhraidh- Gangnam Style’ dance off! Led by Karol Caulfield, Tess Hughes and Alan Nelson, the St. Joseph’s teachers were well aware that the camp offered the children an excellent opportunity to learn Irish in a fun way. With smiles a plenty Friday afternoon, the summer camp was undoubtedly a resounding success.
