Mrs McGeown’s 6th class girls were very fortunate to be invited to Monaghan County Museum on Monday 4th October. A film crew from RTÉ’s news department were there to do an item on an exciting new digital educational resource entitled “Minecraft World of Rossmore.” The girls were filmed exploring the resource on ipads and a number of them were interviewed about their experience of the activity.

The item was broadcast on RTÉ’s Six-One News that Monday evening and also on the children’s news, News2day, on RTÉ 2 the following morning. We were very proud to see our pupils on national television and thought they looked and spoke really well.

Many thanks to Liam Bradley and Pauline Tilson of the museum staff for offering this wonderful opportunity to our girls.
