Maths Week 2018

Posted by Ms. Thomas On October - 19 - 2018

We had a great week celebrating Maths Week in first, second and third class. We played maths games everyday at school. We learned lots of new games!

We went outside on Thursday to explore maths in the world around us. We worked in teams and completed a maths trail. The maths trail helped us to explore shapes, lines, numbers and length.

We had great fun!

Enjoying Maths Week!

Digital Schools Cluster

Posted by Ms. McDonald On September - 26 - 2018

Here in Gortskehy N.S., we are delighted to announce our involvement with the Digital Schools Excellence programme. We are part of a three school cluster which includes St. Pats BNS, Castlebar and Meelickmore N.S.. We made an application to be involved in this project to the Department of Education and Skills last year and were successful. We will be working as a team over the next 3 years to enhance our teaching and your children’s learning using digital technologies. Each family will receive a copy of our first newsletter below. We are in the process of developing our own website where you will be able to view our ongoing progress throughout the year.
