Partnership thanks Frontline Staff through shared artwork
The current school closures did not prevent pupils from St Oliver's National School in Carlingford and St Brigid's Special School in Dundalk completing their second year of shared education as they worked together on what was really important to them at this time -expressing their thanks to the frontline workers.
Both schools in the St Oliver's NS and St Brigid's Special School partnership have worked on being a team and building friendships together. Even school closure was not going to put a stop to this and actually provided an opportunity to engage their families too. Online the pupils talked about what they were feeling grateful for right now. Collectively, both schools are extremely grateful for the frontline workers. So the challenge was how to express this together. Each family in both schools was allocated a word for an art project. They then decided how to express that word in an art form and capture it in a photo an share it with each other. The words in art form were then combined together by the teaching staff and sent as a message of thanks to the frontline workers. This project was the capstone of their joint collaboration this academic year.
