“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!
The last few months have been very different from any other year. When Leo Varadakar announced in March that schools would close for two weeks everyone was delighted. It was soon announced that the lockdown would continue for a few months. I spent a lot of time in my new bedroom that I had painted and bought new furniture for. I finally caught up on things I had wanted to do for ages but didn’t have the time for. My sisters and I spent a lot of time together making messes, forts, crafts and playing football outside. When the restrictions lifted slightly, I was able to have sleepovers with my cousins, meet up with my friends and go more places. Shortly afterwards schools reopened after months of quarantine. Things were different – when you came into the classroom you would have to sanitise your hands and if you felt sick the teacher would have to check your temperature. A few weeks into school I started to miss quarantine, but at least I got to see my friends everyday.
It will now soon be mid term break and everyone is excited for Halloween. Some of us (like me) hope that Micheál Martin will extend the mid term and try to get things under control. The covid-19 virus has changed everyone’s plans this year.
