Our two 5th classes have been selected to participate in a programme of Collaborative and Shared Education (CASE) during this school year.  This is a programme funded by Léargas and it is the first year in which some Monaghan schools are involved.  We are partnered with St Mary’s Boys’ School and Urbleshanny N.S.

Over the course of the year our 5th class girls will meet up once a month with the 5th classes in the partner schools and together they will have lessons in Coding, Scratch, Sphero, Lego and some science activities.  These lessons will be held in two of the three schools on a rota basis. Mrs Cassidy and Mrs Mone will be helping to facilitate the lessons with teachers from the other two schools.

As an introductory event, the classestravelled to the Peace Link, Clones, where they met with pupils from each of the other schools.  They enjoyed a fun-filled, activity day which gave  them  the opportunity to get to know one another.
