Creative Schools Celebration Week 2021

Posted by Ms. Naughton On May - 9 - 2021

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.

Gortskehy Radio Takeover

Posted by Ms. Thomas On February - 28 - 2021

“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.
