We went on our school tour last week. We went to Horizon in Westport. It was a very active school tour. We took part in lots of activities including archery, laser world, a blindfold walk, trampolining, aeroball, and we even had a go on the bouncing castle! It was lots of fun and we had a great day together!

Magical Day at McHale

Posted by Ms. Thomas On April - 11 - 2019

On Friday, March 29th 2019 the children in first, second and third class went on a very exciting trip to the McHale factory in Ballinrobe.

When we arrived we were met by our tour guide and we were all very excited. We went to the board room and we got to look at a video about the history of the company. It was very interesting! After that we had a tour of the showroom and we learned all about the balers and different machines. We have done lots of work on inventions and science this year and it was great to see real inventions and how they are made in real-life. We learned that different materials and pieces are put together to make the machinery. They even use robotic machines to make the balers!

When we came home we typed a story about our trip on our Chromebooks.

We were very lucky to have the fantastic opportunity to see real-life inventions. We had a magical, fun-filled memorable day!

“Being active, staying fit, Gortskehy always does its bit!”, Cathal Tierney, 5th Class

 

We have been very active in Gortskehy recently for our @activeflag.

 

We held a competition during November for the children to come up with our active school slogan. The children came up with fantastic ideas. Congratulations to Cathal Tierney, fifth class for coming up with the winning catchy slogan! We had a competition for the infants to draw and colour an active picture. They really enjoyed it and had great pictures!

On November 19th we started taking part in the ‘Active Break Every Day Challenge’. Each class had an active break every day. We had a running break, a dance break or an exercise break each day. It really helped us to energise ourselves and concentrate and focus better on our work. We had so much fun during these breaks that we have an active break every day at school now. It helps us to stay healthy!

On the day of our Christmas Holidays we had a Christmas Disco. Each class got to perform a dance in the dance off! It was a really active way to end the term at school and we had a fantastic time dressed up in our Christmas jumpers.

We are going to be taking part in the Operation Transformation 10@10 initiative in January at school and we are looking forward to the challenge!

What a great summer we had! At the after-school we enjoyed painting, baking and taking part in various arts and crafts. Pet week was very popular along with other outdoor activities in the glorious sunshine. You can find more information on the after-school here.
