We would like to wish a warm welcome to all our new entrants here in Gortskehy National School. We hope you have a wonderful year in Junior Infants!
On June 21st, we went to Horizon adventure centre in Westport. We arrived at 10 o’clock and had great fun playing laser tag, archery and tackling the climbing wall and high ropes. Aeroball was fantastic and we competed against each other for points. We also played night-line which meant we had to go into the forest blindfolded and holding onto a rope. We completed obstacles and had to crawl through tunnels and climb through ropes to reach our destination. It was a brilliant day and we enjoyed it so much!
The Grow in Love programme is the new religious education series from Veritas. It is a colourful and fun way for children and families to learn about faith, both in school and at home. It will replace the Alive-O programme in every Catholic primary school in the country.
It includes illustrations to accompany every story with online videos and weblinks for further study. Our school was chosen to dramatise the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard. The following video is the result of much practice and will form part of the Grow in Love national video database.
The pupils in the senior room performed their roles extremely well and we are very proud that their achievement will be viewed in schools nationwide for many years to come.
