Tráth na gCeist

Posted on : March 6, 2016

Daltaí sa triú bliain agus daltaí sa chúigiú bliain a ghlac páirt sa bhabhta reigiúnach de Thráth na gCeist 2015-16 á reáchtáil ag Feachtas sa Scoil Ghraiméir roimh an Nollaig.  Chuaigh siad ar aghaidh go dtí an babhta ceannais i mBaile Átha Cliath ar an gcéad lá de Mhárta.  Is beag nár bhuaigh siad.  Ní raibh ach cúig pointe san iomaíocht ag an deireadh.  Ní beag an t-éacht é sin nuair a chuirtear san áireamh go raibh ceithre fhoireann is fiche páirteach i mbabhta ceannais an chomórtais leo ó gach cearn den tír.  Ócáid thaitneamhach, thairbheach, a bhí ann do chách, a thug deis do gach dalta an Ghaeilge a chloisteáil agus sult a bhaint as an gcomórtas.  Comhghairdeas le fhoireann SGS!

Before Christmas third and fifth year students took part in the regional Féachtas Irish quiz and progressed to the National Finals in Dublin on 1st March. The Sligo Grammar School team did very well at the finals,  with only five points between them and the winning team. In all there were 24 teams competing from all around Ireland, many of them from Gaelscoileanna. Well done to the SGS team!
