The Senior room came together in groups to write scripts for a puppet show for the junior room.
They worked very hard in art to make their puppets and backgrounds.
They performed their puppet shows on the last day of school.
The junior room loved the shows and had lots of fun and giggles.
Congratulations to everyone in Clontuskert on a very successful year and to all those who received awards today. We wish you a very happy, enjoyable and relaxing summer.

Congratulations to 5th and 6th class Winners at MindRising 16 today!
This Saturday 5th and 6th class represented Clontuskert at the MindRising Awards Ceremony in Dublin and also visited the CoderDojo Coolest Projects & Launch’d Dublin in the RDS.
MindRising is a competition celebrating 200 years of the island of Ireland. MindRising champions the use of digital technology in schools and groups and is about telling stories about our past and our future. We worked on our digital storytelling skills across a range of media which included building elements of our project in Minecraft. We were encouraged to remember the past 100 years and imagine what the next 100 years could bring.
We watched many of the excellent documentaries on RTE and TG4 detailing the 1916 Rising and took notes on these.
We used our Senior Room OneNote Classroom Notebook to gather all of our work together. This meant that when we researched either using books or the Internet with our Surface devices everything was kept in one collaborative space.
Triggy from 6th class used Sway to collate all of the information in one place. We loved using Sway as the photographs and videos etc are all Creative Commons. This means that they can be used for education and it was so easy to create and edit. See our project Sway here:
Our film Portal to MindRising was adapted from original stories written by Kiwi and Triggy. Construction was completed in Minecraft by 5th and 6th class and the screencasting and editing was completed by 6th class.
The film we created; Portal to MindRising can be seen above.
On Friday, the students made beautiful cards to celebrate Father’s Day which takes place this Sunday. Below are some samples of our work. We hope all the Dads have a lovely day!
Well done to our Students of the Week who received their certificates at assembly on Friday. Comhghairdeas!
