Visitor to the School

Today, we were very lucky to have another parent come and visit us at school to tell us about their job and what it involves. Stephen Scannell gave us an excellent presentation on his company Teleflex. Teleflex produces medical devices, some of which Stephen brought to school to show us. He, himself, works in the I.T. section of the company. Teleflex is a multi-national company and Stephen provides technical assistance to people working worldwide. The children had lots of excellent questions and really enjoyed the presentation.

Week 4 Human Differences Project: Building Bridges instead of Walls- Skyping Northern Ireland

Today as part of the Human Differences Project we Skyped Mr. Corrigan’s Class in Millennium Integrated in Belfast once again. Last week our Skype Call was moderated by Mr. Dijkman and his class in Belgium. We learnt about the history that led to partition and the border with Northern Ireland and learnt about life in the North. 

This week we wanted the students to learn more about each other. We will post a video soon about all that we learnt. We told each other about our favourite hobbies and sports and discovered that we have many similarities. This helps to build bridges instead of walls, the aim of Week Four of the Human Differences Project. Find our more on www.humandifferences.com
