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!
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.
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.
