HOW TO ENROL
The forms explain details of Subject options prospective students can choose.
Last week, students and Ms Clora neilan and Ms Marianne Gardiner made a cross-cuuricular trip to Trinity College Dublin, The Natural History Museum ( taking in the bog bodies) and a fascinating tour of Butlers Chocolate Factory.
Transition year students have been busy over the last few weeks, baking Christmas Cakes. However, they didn’t stop there. With the guidance of teachers, Marianne Gardiner and Clora Neilan, each student prepared their own cake of Santa sleeping in bed.
Along the way, students had to choose, the colour of the floorboards, and how to decorate their unique cake. Decisions, Decisions! Stockings, Snowflakes, Holly, Presents….!
Transition Year Students also made a Special Christmas Cake which was raffled with proceeds going to Rosemount Nursing Home, Gort. Finally, Transition Year Students Olga Burke and Aoife McKeown designed a Christmas Cake with the word “HOPE”, in a sea of white icing.
This Gort Community School Christmas Cake and Hand made Christmas Card signed by students will be brought to the ‘Jungle Refugee Camp’ in Calais, France.
It is a small symbol of solidarity for those who work with the UK Anti-Racism charity “Care4Calais” (www.care4calais.org).
One of our students in 2nd year, Kevin O’ Halloran, competed in the Special Olympics Regional Finals in Sligo. Kevin swam his way to gold and will now go on to compete in the Connacht Finals, next year.
To add to the joy of the day, his brother Stephen also won in his swimming category! Double gold success for the O’Halloran brothers! What a pair! We are very proud of Kevin as he trains very hard and we have no doubt he will do fantastic next year.
The Education Advisor to the Spanish Embassy, Adolfo Carbón, visited the Gort Community School on Thursday 26th of November.
He was treated to a concert by the First Year students of Spanish. This was followed by a tour of the school. He then met with four of the visiting Spanish students, who are studying here for the year.
Also, Mr. Carbón was able to give some very valuable advice to some of the Fourth Year students who will be walking a section of the Camino de Santiago walk in the north of Spain this coming March.
