Assembly 12-1-2017

Today at Assembly we spoke about our New Year Resolutions. We thought about all of the people we would like to help this year.
We were updated on FLL Junior and FLL progress so far. We learnt about Write a Book as everyone is working hard on their books from 1st to 6th class.
We had two special birthdays to celebrate. Ms. Patricia Kilgannon, Principal of Ard Scoil Mhuire awarded our Students and Writers of the Week certificates. Ms. Kilgannon was in Clontuskert to meet the 6th class students to let them know about Ard Scoil Mhuire’s upcoming Taster Tuesday and Open Night.

Christmas Holidays

Today was a very special day in Clontuskert. In the morning we exchanged Kris Kringle presents and shared special messages with our friends before Christmas.


We had our Christmas concerts in the school hall at 11.00am. It was wonderful to see so many past pupils, parents, grandparents and friends of the school in Clontuskert. It was standing room only in the hall as you can see from the photos.

Thanks to Bríd Lyons who filmed the event. See some photos from our dress rehearsal here:

Beannachtaí na Nollaig oraibh go léir agus feicfimid sibh go léir nuair a osclaíonn an Scoil arís ar an Luan, an 8ú lá de mí Eanair 2018.

Presenting our work in OneNote

Today Microsoft visited us in Clontuskert to film us presenting about our work in OneNote. We shared our work in Classroom Notebook, Staff Notebook and how we use Learning Tools. We were filmed in groups working on a collaborative feasts and festivals lesson. We each worked in groups to research, collate and present in video form a feast or festival from India, Israel, Kenya and America.

We then explained how OneNote makes classroom life easier by streamlining how we work both individually in our own Student Section, collaboratively in the Collaboration section and with our teachers in the Content Library.

We showcased Immersive Reader, Skype Collaborations and especially project work like the Climate Action Project.
We also spoke about using Creative Commons in research and writing our own Christmas play.

We look forward to seeing the pieces that were filmed today in the New Year.
