Leonardo da Vinci was a very well known artist from Italy. He was also an anatomist, a writer, an architect, an inventor, a scientist, an engineer and much more. He was the greatest Renaissance Man of all time.

“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.
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!
So far 2020 has been a mad year but going back to school meant being able to see my friends. I missed them all very much and was glad to see that they were all doing well. I’ve still the same number of grandparents from the start of covid-19 and I’ve decided that for midterm I’m going to do up my room. I’ve been able to do a lot of art in my spare time. I also went back to horse riding and I love it. I hope 2020 will be over soon and hopefully 2021 will be much better. We also have a new teacher, Miss Connolly, who comes in once or twice a week to replace Mr. Ó Beirn when he takes administration days. Miss Connolly is really nice and loves Art, Drama and singing. We also started to do a league in school which I think is a great idea. Halloween is coming up and I’m not sure what to dress up as. We are allowed to dress up on Friday so that’s going to be fun. I hope November will be better and that covid cases will go down and we can continue to see each other at school!
