TCS - What's happening

Lá na Gaeilge 2016

la-na-gaeilge-2106Tráth na gceist

Bhí Tráth na gCeist ar siúl Dé Céadaoin. Ghlac an Idirbhliain, an Cúigiú bliain agus an Séú bliain páirt.  Bhí ceathrar ar ghach foireann. Bhí daltaí ón Idirbhliain ag cabhrú leis na múinteoirí – ag bailiú na freagraí agus ag ceartú. Bhí cuid de na ceisteanna deacair ach bhain gach duine an-taitneamh as. Fuair na buaiteoirí milseáin agus seacláid!

Céilí

Bhí céilí mór ar siúl Dé hAoine. Bhí céilí don chéad bhliain, don dara bliain agus ansin don triú bliain. Bhí fiche duine ón Idirbhliain ag cabhrú – ag damhsa agus ag spreagadh na ndaltaí. Bhí duaiseanna do na rinceóirí ab fhearr. Tar éis lóin bhí céilí do na daltaí sinsearacha go léir - bhí an chraic go h-iontach. Bhuaigh Aidan Stynes agus Ailish Kenna duais ‘twinkle toes’!  Bhí ‘an cúpla focal’ le cloisteáil timpeall  na háite chomh maith. Bhain gach duine an-taitneamh as Lá na Gaeilge. Pictiúir


 

Litter Clean Up

Litter Initiative

litter-binTallaght Community School is encouraging students to participate in a local community litter initiative. It is important that all students and staff play their part in supporting a cleaner and safer environment for all. South Dublin County Council have generously donated a number of new bins to help this initiative. These new bins are located between the local Centra on Castletymon Rd and the school grounds.

To kick start TCS in this campaign the Green Schools Committee will be holding a number of clean up events after lunch in the coming weeks. We ask that all students and staff show their support and pride in the local community and School by making a conscious effort to reduce littering and increase recycling.

A little effort made by all can make a big difference!


 

TCS celebrates Friendship Week 2016

Friendship Week Winning PostersFriendship week was held in Tallaght Community School from the 10th to 14th of October, junior and senior students embraced all activities with great enthusiasm.  The focus of the week was on the importance of friendship and the positive effect that good friends can have on all our lives.  Some junior students participated in a poster competition, the standard of all entries was high and the teachers did not envy the fifth year students that had to pick the winners.
