This short video is about what it was like growing up during World War 2 which was called The Emergency in Ireland. I hope you enjoy!

“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!
Since we have started school again we have been in Garrymore hall while a new classroom is being built back at the school. I like being at school in the hall because we use the new astro-turf pitch for break times and P.E. We also use half of the hall for basketball games when it’s raining. The other half of the hall is for our school work.
We have our own laptops and pair of headphones for our technology work and our own scissors and glue sticks for art. It is quite different from last year as we’re not in a normal classroom but it’s a nice change. Another change that has happened is with the bus. You see, this is how it works… everyone gets on the bus (except Sadhbh and Ella as their houses are right across from Garrymore hall) and sits in their newly assigned seats. At home time the bus brings us from Garrymore hall to the school where most people get off as they are getting picked up in the car. Then, whoever is left on the bus has to wait for the younger classes to get on the bus and then, once everyone is on, we can head for home!
