E-Twinning Project

In the 2016/2017 school year, 3rd and 4th class participated in an etwinning project entitled "Ireland & France - an exchange of place, culture & stories". This involved creating a presentation about the locality, the school and Ireland and exchanging it with the school in Le Gavre, France. At Christmas, the children exchanged handmade Christmas cards. In January, the children prepared a presentation about a legend from their country and exchanged it. They sent each other cards at Easter. Towards the end of the year the classes recorded performances of singing, music and dance and sent them to each other. In June, the classes did a Skype video call where they 'met' each other and asked some questions about their school life. It was a very interesting project in which to be involved and a fun way for children to learn about other cultures. The project was awarded a National Quality label from Léargas, the governing body for etwinning. The awards were presented on November 28, in Dublin Castle. Mrs. Karen Murnane, project co-ordinator, was delighted to attend the Leargas Forum to accept the award.
