The Department of Education & Skills has advised that schools are to remain closed until April 19th 2020. Please see here for the full statement.
Before the situation with COVID-19 arose, we were in the process of transferring over to a new school email address. Our new email address is email@example.com. The old school email address will only be active until the end of March, after which it will no longer be in use. Please use our new email address when contacting the school from now on - many thanks for your cooperation with this.
Each day over the next 14 days, RTÉ's team of presenters and influencers, including Lottie Ryan, James Kavanagh, Greg O’Shea, Doireann Garrihy and Eoghan McDermott, will share a new challenge, that will get young people creating while maintaining social distance. They are encouraged to make content from anywhere in their house - with creative challenges in music, comedy, dance, art, story-telling, fashion or beauty. The best, funniest and most inventive pieces of content will get a chance to go viral, with help from RTE’s social media platforms. Good luck and have fun!
DAY 1 of the #CreateDontContaminate challenge is a Dance Challenge - Dance, like there is no one there.
John Boyne is running a short story competition to help foster creativity among Irish children and teenagers (6-18 yrs) during this current crisis, with lots of book tokens as prizes! We hope you all enter and we wish you the best of luck! Get writing!
