Our 2nd Class Storytellers

Posted by Ms. Naughton On June - 21 - 2021

Writing is a key part of language learning in primary school. Over the past number of weeks, some of the children from 2nd class -Logan Mark, Mason and Shay worked hard on creating, writing and sharing fun and imaginative stories.

Through this writing process project, the boys were able to focus on their spelling, grammar, vocabulary, punctuation, handwriting as well as their reading/presenting skills.

Well done boys, we hope you enjoy these stories.

Creative Schools Celebration Week 2021

Posted by Ms. Naughton On May - 9 - 2021

Creative Schools Week is a celebration of creativity in schools which includes both In-School Celebrations and Online Celebrations. The week is an opportunity to share, showcase, and connect all the exciting creative work that is being undertaken in participating schools around the country.

Gortskehy NS was selected to participate in the pilot phase of Creative Schools in 2018 and since then, we have have enjoyed many opportunities for our pupils to build their artistic and creative skills; to communicate, collaborate, stimulate their imaginations, be inventive, and to harness their curiosity.

This year, our school submission, featuring the 3rd and 4th class radio show was selected by the Arts Council to feature in the 2021 Creative Schools Online Celebrations.

The Online Celebrations will feature on the Art’s Council website here, from  Wednesday May 12th to Friday, May 14th.   Gortskehy NS and the Radio Show  will feature in Episode 1, which will launch on Wednesday, May 12th.  We are inviting parents and families to tune in to view the celebration on May 12th. Congratulations to Ms. Thomas and the talented pupils of 3rd and 4th class on this fantastic feature –  a wonderful achievement.
