European Innovative Teaching Award

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On February - 13 - 2024

The European Innovative Teaching Award recognises exceptional examples in innovation and education across Europe. Our most recent European project involved a number of activities and exchanges with pupils in Finland, Malta and the Basque Country. The outcome of those activities resulted in us being nominated to receive a European Innovative Teaching Award in the Primary Education category.

A film crew came to visit the school and produced a video for the ceremony. It was an honour to represent Ireland and join 23 other European primary schools in Brussels to receive the award.

Ficheall 2024

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On February - 12 - 2024

The South Mayo Ficheall Tournament was a great success with 128 chess players taking part. Thanks to Garrymore GAA for the use of the hall, especially Pat Hession and Danny McHugh for setting everything up. Chess helps children develop everyday social skills by bringing them together playing games face to face.

Chess has been described as the art of logical thinking. It improves memory, problem-solving and concentration. There are no barriers to entry and children who may have difficulties with literacy or numeracy can participate in, and excel at, chess. We are grateful to Ms. O’Toole and @Lehinch Primary for supporting the initiative with our 5th & 6th Class pupils.
