“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.

    Back To School 2020

    Posted by Senan On October - 23 - 2020

    I am happy to be back to school because I can see my friends and play soccer and Gaelic on the astro-turf pitch. That’s because we’re in Garrymore hall while the new classroom is being built in Gortskehy. When it is raining we can have a game of basketball inside. I like doing art with my friends – sunset art, mask art or the skeletons.

    I really like working on the chromebooks. It’s good how we only use half of the hall for school so we can play basketball on the other half. I would rather be in the hall than being in the school but unfortunately we have to go back to school when the building is finished but that is in a few months so we are ok for now.

    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

    These are the things that are good about being back to school.

    So, first, we are in Garrymore which is really good.  We have an AstroTurf pitch to play football and inside we have a basketball hoop to play a basketball match.

    The next thing which is great about being back is if we stayed off school for much longer I would be brain dead! It’s good to see the lads again.

    We start five minutes earlier in the morning so that we can finish a bit early at home time. This is because the bus picks 5th and 6th up at Garrymore Hall and then picks up everyone else at the school over the road.

    Last, but not least, is that I’m in 6th class now so I’m closer to finishing primary school. It will be soon be time to start secondary and I’m looking forward to the next chapter!

    Back to school during a pandemic

    The best thing about being back to school is….

    well, it was very boring at home, because we were at home for nearly six months. So, I was glad that we could go back to school. The best thing is that we have a massive Gaelic football pitch, an astroturf pitch and, best of all, we are across the road from my house! We are in Garrymore complex. When people ask ‘’how do you get to school everyday?’’ I reply “I walk to my school”. ‘’Well isn’t your school a few km away?’’ they ask. ‘’Well my school is only across the road’’, I reply. It was very scary going back to school for the first time in six months, especially when the Covid-19 cases were high. But now it’s normal to get up and go to school. And I’m very glad we can go to school and see our friends.
