The children from Gaelscoil an Chaistil recently brought their Christmas play production to a bigger stage and returned with two fantastic awards.

The children from Primary 4/5 travelled to An Grianán Theatre in Letterkenny to perform their class production of The Wizard of Oz.

This was part of Gael Linn’s annual ‘Coirm’ drama competition for Gaelic medium primary schools from around the country. The class returned to school sporting two victory trophies to add to their collection.

“The children had a fantastic day meeting other children and seeing other Gaelic language plays,” said class teacher Katie Ui Mhanachain.

“They received high praise from the judges and were awarded two trophies which they proudly took back to school.

“We’re very proud of how well the class have performed and congratulate them on all their hard work.”
