To commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising, the senior classes created ICT projects based on Irish History during their Computer Class over the last few weeks.
Some 5th & 6th class pupils made Scratch projects based on aspects of the 1916 Easter Rising. They used 'Scratch' to create animations and tell the story of the people involved in the Rising and the story of the Rising itself.

Easter 1916 by Dearbhla & Hannah - Ms. McGrath's Class
Hannah has completed a wonderful project on her great granduncle Dennis O'Callaghan who was involved in the Easter Rising. Well done Hannah! It has been uploaded to Scoilnet and can be found at https://www.scoilnet.ie/1916-ancestry-project/ancestry/ancestryid/2/.
3rd and 4th class have spent some time discussing and writing their own versions of the Proclamation and including what they think is important for Ireland in the next 100 years. They worked really hard and put a lot of thought into their efforts. These ideas have been combined to create one proclamation from St. Brigid's which has been uploaded to 'Scoilnet' as part of their 1916 programme.
The themes covered include love for all people, education, homelessness, equality, care for the environment and peace. Click on the picture have a look at our proclamation for a new generation.
