A Comenius Project
For the next two years our schools will be involved in a Comenius project. In Comenius schools from across Europe come together to work on a project to learn about each others countries and cultures.
Larry the Legend Leprechaun went to Durham, England to meet teachers from other schools and to see if we could find partners to work with. The partners are an Irish school, two schools in England, a school in France, Sweden, Estonia and Spain. Our project name is STAGE – which stands for Seven Towards A Greener Europe. The theme for year one of our project is paper usage and recycling and in year two we will learn about the different bird species in each country. Check in here or read our newspaper online to learn more about our project.
THE IRISH SCHOOL MASCOT LARRY WILL TRAVEL TO EACH OF THE COUNTRIES TO HELP US LEARN ABOUT EACH COUNTRY. READ ABOUT HIS ADVENTURES IN THIS SECTION
Dia dhiabh a pháistí,
Larry anseo! An bhfuil nuacht agat? An bhfuil ag déanamh a lán obair?
Last night I showed people from different countries pictures of our school and of the parish. They thought Clontuskert was very beautiful and that we had a great school. They were really impressed with your singing of Óró sé rap and your school news letter. People in France, Sweden, Estonia and many more are going to show your paper to their children
Today we got into groups to do projects together. The picture below shows our group – there are schools from Spain, France, Estonia, Latvia, Sweden and two from England. That’s me at the front of the group!
