FilmG 2017

Pupils from S1 and S2 Gaidhlig took part in FilmG as an optional lunchtime club and filming took place last week. The film will appear on the FilmG website early next year and pupils will undertake a campaign for votes next term.

The FilmG short film competition runs every year and all pupils get the chance to be involved at some point between S1 and S3. It’s a great way to develop their teamwork, leadership, literacy and technology skills in a fun environment. The Gaelic department are very grateful to Shona, Comunn na Gaidhlig, for taking the lead on the project this year.

Bha feum againn a dol gu club FilmG aig àm lòn gach Diardaoin.

Thòisich e le beachachadh air dè bha am film againn dol a bhith mu dheidhinn. Dh’aontaich sinn air ‘The Wizard of Oz’ ach steidhichte san latha an-diugh san sgoil.

An uair sin, sgrìobh sinn an scriopt. Bha a h-uile duine ann am buidhean agus bha feum aca sgrìobhadh dè bha dol a thachairt, na props a bha a dhìth oirnn, cò bha dol a chluich na diofar pàirtean agus tòrr rudan eile.

Fhuair:

Dorothy – Mia

Scarecrow – Órla

Tinman – Keri

Leomhann – Anna

Draoidh – Fionnladh

Elfaba (Wicked Witch of the West) – Katie

Muncaidh – Siobhan

Glinda – Caitlynn

Tidsear – Niamh

Neach-taic an tidsear – Calum

Nuair a bha na còig seallaidhean deiseil rinn sinn tòrr deasachadh. Chaidh sinn thairis air na loidhnichean againn, ciamar am biodh am peasantach aig na diofar caractaran agus dè na ‘sets’ a bhiodh sinn a chleachadh.

Air Diluain an 4mh latha den Dùbhlachd, thòisich sinn a’ filmeadh. Thàinig Debbie NicAoidh agus Alasdair MacillEathain a-steach dhan sgoil airson ar cuideachadh. Bha an dithis aca uabhasach còir agus chuidich iad sinn le an dòigh a bha sinn dol a coiseachd, na diofar ‘camara shots’ a bhiodh sinn feumach air.

Chuir sinn crìoch air ceithir seallaidhean air na Diluain agus an sealladh mu dheireadh air Dimairt. Cuideachd, air Dimairt, rinn sinn gearradh le Alasdair. Thug e ùine mhòr ach bha an ‘end result’ glè mhath. Tha sinn an dòchas gum bi tòrr mòr bhotaichean againn agus gum faigh sinn air a’ ghearr-liosta. An uair sin, ‘s dòcha gum faigh sinn duais! Thalla dhan làrach-lìn FilmG agus bhòt dhan fiolm goirid again  – ‘A’ Chiad Latha Draoimheall’.

DS Moireach, Sgriobhadair a’ tadhal air clasaichean

Chòrd an turas aig Dòmhnall rinn gu mòr. Bha e feumail agus thug e dhuinn sgìlean ùra a bha gu math inntinneach. Dh’inns e dhuinn mu dheidhinn na mothachaidhean againn agus ciamar as urrainn dhut gan cleachdadh airson a dhèanamh na storaidhean againn nas fheàrr agus nas fìor.

It was very a useful visit that helped us improve our writing and how our senses come into it and relates to every situation. It was very interesting and we really enjoyed it. It’s positively improved our folio writing pieces in Gàidhlig and English.

Megan O’ Donnell agus Lois Ravenhill AS5

An t-seachdain sa chaidh, bha Mgr Murray a tighinn a-steach airson ag ionnsachadh dhuinn air ciamar as urrainn dhuinn describe an atmosphere ann an Super Senses. Bha sinn cuideachd a’ dèanamh impressions air tidsearan agus bha sin èibhinn.

Caitlynn Cornish AS1

Thàinig Mgr Moireach a-steach a’ bruidhinn dhan chlas againn airson a’ bruidhinn rinn mu dheidhinn a’ sgrìobhadh storaidhean math. Dh’inns e gun robh na ‘Supersenses’ an rud as curdromaiche anns an storidh. Thuirt e gun robh ‘Superhearing’ an fhear as cudromaiche agus tha ‘Supersmell’ a’ cuideachadh an storaidh a bhith inntinneach. Cuideachd, thuirt e na bi a’ cleachdadh ‘Supersight’ cus agus cleachd ‘Supertouch’ uaireannan cuideachd. Bha e ag ràdh cha robh mòran cothroman a’ cleachdadh ‘Supertaste’ ach tha e tric ceangailte ri ‘Supersmell’.

Evie MacLeod AS1

Nuair a bha Mgr Moireach an seo, bhruidhinn e mu dheidhinn na ‘Supersenses’ agus thuirt e gu robh ‘Superhearing’ an rud as cudromaiche ann an sgeulachdan. Na cur cus fiosrachadh mu dheidhinn ‘Supersight’ anns na sgeulachdan agad, thuirt e gu bheil e nas fheàrr airson am mac-meanma aig na daoine a tha a’ leughadh an sgeulachd. Dh’ionnsaich mi gu bheil toll aig gach taobh den cheann aig caileachan-oidhche na cluasan aca agus tha na rudan a tha a’ coimhead mar cluasan rudeigin eile a thaobh faireachdainn.

Rona Campbell AS1

Thàinig Mgr Moireach dhan sgoil againn ag innse mu dheidhinn na Supersenses a dh’fheumas tu nuair a tha thu a’ sgrìobhadh leabhar no bàrdachd. Dh’inns e dhuinn mu dheidhinn:

  • Supersmell – a’ toirt faireachdainn dhan storaidh neo bàrdachd
  • Supertouch – dìreach a’ cleachdadh uaireannan airson dòighean
  • Superhearing – an fhear as cudromaich as na Supersenses. Chleachdadh airson comhradh agus èist airson loidhnichean daoine eile
  • Supersight – airson an setting
  • Supertaste – dìreach uaireannan

Rachel Sutherland AS1

An t-seachdain sa chaidh, bha an sgrìobhadair Mgr Moireach a’ tighinn gu an IRA agus a’ teagasg sinn mu dheidhinn sgrìobhadh. Last week the author Mgr Moireach came to the IRA and he taught us about writing.

Deasbad Naiseanta 2017

Chaidh mise, Eilidh, agus Christina gu Deasbad Nàiseanta na h-Alba ann an Steòrnabhagh. Bha tòrr spòrs againn ach cha d’fhuair sinn a-steach dhan darna cuirt. Rinn sinn tòrr caraidean ùra is chaidh am misneachd againn suas. Tha sinn airson ga dhèanamh an ath-bhliadhna air sgàth ’s gun do dh’ionnsaich sinn tòrr is ’s e cothrom glè mhath a th’ ann.

We went to the Scottish National Debate in Stornoway. We really enjoyed this experience as we gained confidence and we got to meet lots of new people. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it through to the second round but we hope to go back next year.

Mòd Loch Abar 2017

20171101_150722.jpgBha am Mòd am bliadhna-sa ann an Loch Abair agus abair gun robh e àlainn. Bha an aimsir meadhanach math fad na t-seachdain agus nach robh spòrs ann. Bha mise dìreach suas air an Disathairne agus air Dimairt agus bha mise agus Iain Hunter a’ cluich airson Alba an aghaidh Gaelcholaiste Dhoire agus bhuannaich sinn 3-1. ‘S e geam math a bh’ ann agus bha cothrom againn a’ bruidhinn ri na h-Eireanneach. Bha mi sìos air an Dimairt cuideachd airson farpaisean seinn, bàrdachd agus còmhradh. Bha feadhainn de na sgoilearan sa chlas agam sìos cuideachd agus a’ gabhail pàirt mar – Calum Dunbar, Iain Hunter, Kirsty O’ Reilly. Tha mi a’ smaoineachadh gun do chord am Mòd ris a h-uile duine. Chòrd e riumsa gu cinnteach agus tha mi a’ coimhead air adhart ri am Mòd sìos ann an Dùn Omhain an ath-bhliadhna.

Le Fionnlagh MacIllFhinnein S2

This year’s Mòd was in Lochaber and what a Mòd it was. The weather was ok throughout the week with a few ‘little’ showers. I was just up on the Saturday and the Tuesday. Me and Iain Hunter got our first caps for Scotland playing against Gaelcholaiste Dhoire. We beat them 3-1 and it was good because we got to chat with them at the end. I was down on Tuesday for singing, poetry and conversation. Some other of my peers were there as well including Calum Dunbar, Iain Hunter and Kirsty O’ Reilly. I think that this year’s Mòd was a successful one and can’t wait for Dunoon next year!
