Our Christmas prayer service, featuring pupils from all classes was broadcast live from Carras Church which looks absolutely fantastic and is a credit to all involved. Happy Christmas everyone.
This video was produced especially for the residents and staff of Hollymount Nursing Home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun making it. Nollaig Shona!
On Friday, March 13th, 2020 all Ireland went into lockdown. Everyone was happy that schools were closed and you had to stay home. So I just played video games and my friend James and I would meet in Ballyglass every day. Then after seven months every child’s worst nightmare came to pass and schools started again! So 5th and 6th class were in Garrymore because a new classroom is being built in Gortskehy. Garrymore is way better because we can play basketball inside and play football on the astroturf pitch. Now it’s near mid-term so maybe Taoiseach Micheál Martin will make the holidays longer as covid cases are on the rise.
At the end of our last Zoom lesson the girls in the Senior Room read notes they had written for Aoife, Kellyann and Ruby while the boys sent best wishes to Abdul, Bradley, Cathal and Evan. During your time in Gortskehy you brought a smile to school every day and will be such an asset to Mount St. Michael and St. Colman’s. Beir bua agus beannacht go deo. We’ll miss you.
This is the story of Noel Joyce an unfortunate hurler who, following a bang to the head, managed to score an own goal and lose the county final for his team. We planned it as part of our weekly Zoom lessons. The pupils recorded their allocated lines at home and we stitched the clips together to create this final video.
