Tionscadal Logainmneacha na Scoileanna - Schools Place names Projects

Tionscadal é seo chun logainmneacha áitiúla a chaomhnú agus chun páistí a ghríosadh chun foghlaim mar gheall ar stair agus oidhreacht a gceantair dhúchais féin.

Primary school children will research the names of local places (fields, coastal features, streets, etc.), recording what they learn, including stories they gather from local people. They will populate a specially-developed Waterford Place names GIS online Storymap (on www.waterfordcouncil.ie) with the placenames and information gathered, and also work with a community artist to produce art pieces based on their research. Participating schools will receive a specially- commisioned ogham stone bearing their townland name.

Comhfhiontar é seo idir Chartlannaí, Oifigeach Gaeilge, Oifigeach Ealaíon agus Foireann GIS Chomhairle Phort Láirge, i gcomhar le Coiste Logainmneacha na Comhairle.
