A’ teannadh air deireadh na teirm / Approaching the end of another school year!

Abair bliadhna thrang a th’ air a bhith againn: deuchainnean, clàr-ama ùr, cuspairean ùra tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig…liosta fada gu dearbh.

A-measg nan tachartasan as inntinniche, bha turas air leth againn dhan phàrlamaid far an d’fhuair sinn cuairt san togalach leis an Oifigear Gàidhlig Alasdair MacCaluim.  Dh’innis Alasdair dhuinn mu eachdraidh an togalaich, na rudan a bhios a’ tachairt ann agus mun fheadhainn a tha nan suidhe san t-seòmar deasbaid.

A bharrachd air a sin, chuir FilmG farpais na bliadhna air bhog san sgoil againn, is fhuair cuid dhe na sgoilearan againn cothrom a dhol an sàs ann am bùithtean-obrach drama, aithris-spòrs agus filmeadh le fòn-làimhe.  Tha sinn air ar dòigh glan gun deach Ardsgoil Sheumais Ghilleasbuig a thaghadh airson an tachartas seo.

Tha Mgr N. a’ dèanamh deiseil airson turas dhan Eilean Sgitheanach agus tha sinn uile an dòchas gum bi deagh shìde ann, agus nach bi na meanbh-chuileagan ro fhiadhaich!

As we approach the end of another school year, we are beginning to reflect on the many successes we have had, including the trip to the Parliament and the FilmG launch.  We are also getting ready for another trip to Skye – fingers crossed for good weather! Continue reading

Shrapnel


Shrapnel Lèirmheas
A-raoir, chaidh naoinear againn dhan Storytelling Centre anns a bhaile mhòr gus an dealbh-cluich ùr ‘Shrapnel’ fhaicinn. Bha e stèidhichte ann an Lìte, ‘s e a’ leantainn beatha a’ phrìomh charactar  MacLugran  ’s e an sàs ann am muirt diomhaireach. Le cleasaichean glè ainmeil ann an saoghal nan Gàidheal, bha dùil againn gum biodh e sgoinneil. Choilean e an dùileachadh sin gun teagamh.  Wow, bha e dìreach mìorbhaileach!
Choinnich sinn cuideachd ris an sàr-chleasaiche Iain Macrae aka Tormod bho Bannan aig an after-party/meet and greet!!! Nach sinn a bha fortanach!! #Tormod #selfie
(ok, ’s mathaid nach eil am pios seo buileach fìor…)
Chòrd an dealbh-cluich rinn gu mòr, chanainn gur e an dealbh-cluich a b’fhearr a chunnaic sinn. Bha e uabhasach buntainneach dhuinn air sgath ’s gun robh e stèidhichte ann an Dùn Èideann.

Guest bloggers Amy and Cara give a review of the play ‘Shrapnel’ which they saw, along with some other JGHS pupils, at the Story Telling Centre.  They thoroughly enjoyed the play which explored the dark and murky world of the Edinburgh underworld.  They were also busy celebrity spotting…

Oidhche nan Duaisean – The Award Ceremony le Sìne NicGriogair



FILM G        

    
                                                           
Air ais anns an Damhair, bha an cothrom aig sianar againn bhon treas bhliadhna fiolm proifeiseanta a dhèanamh le taic bho FilmG. Ged a bha e uabhasach spòrsail aig an àm, cha robh dùil againn gum biodh dad mòr a’ tighinn as. Cha robh dùil a riamh againn gun deidheadh sinn fiù ’s ainmeachadh ach coimheadaibh dè thachair! Rinn sinn am film airson ar sgilean Gàidhlig agus drama a leasachadh, ach fhuair sinn dhan Old Fruitmarket ann an Glaschu airson oidhche uabhasch spaideil gu dearbh.
Chaidh ar suidhe aig bòrd leinn fhìn, le sealladh sgoinneil air an stèids. Dh’fhairich sinn uile an àile, a bha mar dealain. Chuidich e gun robh sinn uile a faireachdain leòmach sna dreasaichean againn. Chòrd e rinn uile gun robh an cothrom againn leigel le ar dreasaichean solas an latha fhaicinn!
Thòisich an oidhche le rud beag aithris bho na preasantairean, le deise agus dreasaichean a theab ar dèanamh dall! Chuala sinn cuideachd bho Alasdair Allan, a dh’innis dhuinn mu an luach mhòr a th’aig ar cànan. Aig deireadh na h-aithris aige, chuala sinn ainm ar film, ‘An Tè Uaine’ agus Àrd Sgoil Sheumais Gilleasbuig! Cha robh fios againn dè bha tachairt, ach mar a dh’ionnsaich sinn, bhuannaich sinn an duais airson Gàidhlig as fhèarr. ‘S e a chiad duais a bh’ann, mar sin cha robh fios againn dè dhèanadh sinn. Shuidh sinn anns na seathraichean againn agus mu dheireadh thall, chaidh sinn suas air an stèids agus leugh a h-uile tè againn a-mach ar n-òraid, dìreach mar a rinn sinn a h-uile càil anns am fhilm – còmhla. 
A’ coimhead air ais, bha sinn uabhasach fortanach gun d’fhuair sinn ar duais aig toiseach na h-oidhche, or b’urrainn dhuinn suidhe air ais aig fois, a’ coimhead air na fiolmaichean agus an còrr den oidhche sgoinneil.

A’ coinneachadh ri na h-urracha mòra – Meeting the MSPs

Bha sinn air ar dòigh fiathachadh fhaighinn bho MG Alba a thighinn dhan phàrlamaid airson foillseachadh ‘Lèirsinn’.  Tha MG Alba air planaichean a chruthachadh airson an àm ri teachd, is dh’iarr iad air na nigheanan a bha an sàs ann am FilmG tighinn, far an do choinnich iad ri muinntir MG Alba, Buill Pàrlamaid is luchd-riochdachaidh bho bhuidhnean eile.  Chualas mu na ‘ro-innleachdan’ aig MG Alba agus na tha fainear dhaibh a-thaobh daingeachadh sheirbhisean agus mar sin air adhart.  Bha a h-uile duine a bha an làthair a’ moladh modh agus Gàidhlig ar sgoilearan.  Cha chuireadh e iongnadh orm cuid aca fhaicinn ag obair sa phàrlamaid aon latha!

Many thanks to MG Alba for inviting us along to the launch of Lèirsinn (the document detailing their plans and strategies for the years to come).  The FilmG girls represented the school extremely well and were very much at home mixing it with the various representatives present. Continue reading
