We have arrived safely in Bilbao. One of the banners read “Welcome Home” and there’s no better way to describe the welcome we received from the teachers and host families.
For the first time since 2017 Garrymore look forward to a Senior County Semi Final against Knockmore which takes place this Saturday, November 6th, at 7pm in the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence, Bekan. Best of luck to Harry and Patrick’s dad, Brian, who plays in goal and past pupils Justin Commins, Patrick Hession, Jamie Hession, Caolan Crowe, David Dolan, Mark Tierney and Enda Hession. Go n-éirí libh!
Creative Schools Week is a celebration of creativity in schools which includes both In-School Celebrations and Online Celebrations. The week is an opportunity to share, showcase, and connect all the exciting creative work that is being undertaken in participating schools around the country.
Gortskehy NS was selected to participate in the pilot phase of Creative Schools in 2018 and since then, we have have enjoyed many opportunities for our pupils to build their artistic and creative skills; to communicate, collaborate, stimulate their imaginations, be inventive, and to harness their curiosity.
This year, our school submission, featuring the 3rd and 4th class radio show was selected by the Arts Council to feature in the 2021 Creative Schools Online Celebrations.
The Online Celebrations will feature on the Art’s Council website here, from Wednesday May 12th to Friday, May 14th. Gortskehy NS and the Radio Show will feature in Episode 1, which will launch on Wednesday, May 12th. We are inviting parents and families to tune in to view the celebration on May 12th. Congratulations to Ms. Thomas and the talented pupils of 3rd and 4th class on this fantastic feature – a wonderful achievement.
