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!
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.
