Is í aidhm an dúshlán seo ná na daltaí a spreagadh chun labhairt as Gaeilge amháin ar feadh 24 uair a chloig, sa bhaile, ar scoil, le siopaí agus gnólachtaí, timpeall an bhaile, le cairde, sa chlub spóirt nó óige agus eile.
Students and staff Arklow CBS took part in Gaeilge 24, a nationwide challenge, run by Conradh na Gaeilge.
Arklow CBS saw 40 staff and students, all of whom wore green t-shirts supplied by Conradh na Gaeilge, participate in this initiative, however, each and every member of the school community made a huge joint effort in speaking and promoting the use of the Irish language both inside and outside the classroom. Different activities 'as Gaeilge' were held throughout the school day.
Among the activities organised for the day were 'Tráth ns gCeist', Dúshlán na nDealbh (mannequin challenge), cluichí boird (board games), Ciorcal cainte (converstion circle) agus píotsa(pizzaat lunch time.
This is the third year Arklow CBS has organised "Gaeilge 24" and it's going from strength to strength.
