On Wednesday the 3rd of October the senior room took part in the mini 7’s. We travelled to The Connacht GAA Centre in Bekan where we teamed up with Meelickmore National School. We had a very successful day with both teams winning all their matches. Both teams are progressing to the next stage scheduled for Tuesday the 9th of October. We will keep you all posted.

Digital Schools Cluster

Posted by Ms. McDonald On September - 26 - 2018

Here in Gortskehy N.S., we are delighted to announce our involvement with the Digital Schools Excellence programme. We are part of a three school cluster which includes St. Pats BNS, Castlebar and Meelickmore N.S.. We made an application to be involved in this project to the Department of Education and Skills last year and were successful. We will be working as a team over the next 3 years to enhance our teaching and your children’s learning using digital technologies. Each family will receive a copy of our first newsletter below. We are in the process of developing our own website where you will be able to view our ongoing progress throughout the year.

Senior Room School Tour 2018

Posted by Daniel On June - 22 - 2018

On June 21st, we went to Horizon adventure centre in Westport. We arrived at 10 o’clock and had great fun playing laser tag, archery and tackling the climbing wall and high ropes. Aeroball was fantastic and we competed against each other for points. We also played night-line which meant we had to go into the forest blindfolded and holding onto a rope. We completed obstacles and had to crawl through tunnels and climb through ropes to reach our destination. It was a brilliant day and we enjoyed it so much!

The Grow in Love programme is the new religious education series from Veritas. It is a colourful and fun way for children and families to learn about faith, both in school and at home. It will replace the Alive-O programme in every Catholic primary school in the country.

It includes illustrations to accompany every story with online videos and weblinks for further study. Our school was chosen to dramatise the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard. The following video is the result of much practice and will form part of the Grow in Love national video database.

The pupils in the senior room performed their roles extremely well and we are very proud that their achievement will be viewed in schools nationwide for many years to come.
