“For the next hour, we advise the whole country move to level Gortskehy”

As part of our Creative Schools initiative 3rd and 4th class were presented with the opportunity of creating a radio show. We worked very hard with Jojo Hynes, our creative associate and Claremorris Community Radio. We started by brainstorming ideas and began the creative process of putting radio pieces together. We learned how to make radio reports, how to present items for radio and how to structure an hour of radio. We covered everything from the news and weather to farming to the sports desk and everything else in between. We also included some seasonal pieces as it was being aired on Christmas Day 2020.

We would like to thank Jojo Hynes and Claremorris Community Radio for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. We had great fun putting this together and we hope you enjoy ‘Gortskehy Radio’ as created by 3rd and 4th Class. We definitely have a few budding radio stars in our midst here in Gortskehy National School.

    Erasmus+ Calendar Game

    Posted by Ms. McDonald On February - 1 - 2017

    Today we played ‘The Calendar Game’ created by our Austrian friend Gerald for our Erasmus+ group. We are certainly learning and playing with ICT. The Junior and Senior infants used the wireless mouse and matched pictures and seasons with each other. All the children participated and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Christmas greetings on Skype

    Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On December - 21 - 2016

    Over the past few days we’ve had five online meetings with our partner schools in France, Croatia, Portugal, Lithuania and Austria. We sang Silent Night in Irish, English and played it on the tin whistle. The other schools also sang Silent Night in their native language. We asked each other questions about Christmas in each country and played an online card game where we had to try and find the matching Santas.  Everyone from Infants to Sixth class took part. It was great fun.

    Junior Infants on their Fizzbooks.This term in the Junior room we learned how to safely turn on and off our fizzbook laptops.

    We learned how to click, double-click, drag and drop, copy and paste, open, close, and save a Microsoft Publisher document.

    We printed some of our work and brought it home. We also made recordings of each other. You can listen to some of them below.
