Back to school 2020

Posted by Aoibhínn On October - 23 - 2020

The best thing about being back at school is that we are not stuck at home with nothing to do. We can see our friends and talk to them after a long time off school. We are in Garrymore hall because they are building a new classroom in Gortskehy.

We create lots of art. We make Halloween art, sugar skulls and art to do with autumn. We also wrote Halloween poems.

We learned about different countries and did some artwork on them. We also learned about famous landmarks around the world. We play basketball in the morning and we play on the astroturf for lunch and P.E.

Back To School 2020

Posted by Ben On October - 23 - 2020

The good thing about being back at school is that we get to use the new pitch and we have more places to have fun. That’s because we are in Garrymore hall for a few months. If it’s raining outside we can play basketball indoors and now with COVID -19 even if it’s raining a little we go out for some fresh air. It is also nice that we can see our friends again. It’s better to be back at school instead of doing nothing.

Back To School After Lockdown

Posted by Seán On October - 23 - 2020

In quarantine there was nothing to do.  I was just playing football and playing my Xbox. When I left school I brought all my books and I was tired of the work at home. So my mother let me stop doing it.

I got an email from school because I was watching my mother’s phone. The message was from my teacher so I gave it to my mother and she read it. She said there would be online school using Zoom.  It was alright but my internet was bad so it wasn’t that good for me. It was to chat will all the 5th class boys in the breakout rooms. It was every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

We finished Zoom for the summer and it zoomed by! Before we knew it we were going back to school. We are now in school in Garrymore Hall because a new classroom is being built in Gortskehy. It’s great to see all my friends and playing on the astroturf is great.
