Guitar in Gortskehy

Posted by Ms. Thomas On March - 6 - 2020

We had a great 4 weeks learning guitar with Jason Moyles recently.

We started by learning how to tune our guitars using a tuner and our ear. We then learned 4 chords and have been practising a lot at home.

This extra-curricular activity has complemented our work in the creative schools project where our overall theme is music and performance.

Jason is a wonderfully talented musician and guitar player and it was a pleasure for the children to work with him. He has been very generous with his time and we are very thankful to him.

Video: Middle Room ‘Sleepy Stargazer’

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On January - 18 - 2018

Philip yawns all day long!  Why?  Because he can’t resist gazing at the stars all night!  The other children complain that his sleepiness ruins their games. But one night when Philip is busy stargazing he spots a moving star, and he can’t resist following it.  While everyone else is asleep, Philip is busy meeting shepherds, sheep, angels and wise men – and then a baby king! It was one exciting adventure.

Djembe Drumming Video

Posted by Clíona On March - 20 - 2015

Djembe drums originated in Africa. They are made with a wooden shell and a head made from animal hide, usually it belongs to a goat.  Lukasz came to our school to teach us about the djembe and others drums. We played the drums and sang songs. We had lots of fun. We made the video in school.  Evan from fourth class is speaking as Mr. Turtle and the presenter is me, Clíona, from sixth class.
