It sets out to encourage and recognize excellence and innovation in our schools.This initiative will help deliver on the Creative Youth pillar of Creative Ireland, which sets out a commitment that every child in Ireland has practical access to tuition, experience and participation in music, drama, arts and coding by 2022.All five schools: S.N. Éadan Fhionnfhraoich, Glenties / S.N. Naomh Riaghan, Drimnacross. / S.N. Mhín a Ghabhann, Meenagowan / Scoil Colmchille, Baile na Finne / S.N.

The local schools have worked together to develop a creative project and have had an opportunity since October to collaborate on a new idea based on their local experience and unique perspectives.Oliver McGinley, Principal of S.N. Éadan Fhionnfhraoich said their school community has emphasized over the last number of years the need for taking responsibility for improving the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils. He said “We have, as a school identified the use of creativity (Drama in particular) as a significant tool in our strategy. It has always been our aspiration that all our pupils are afforded the opportunity to learn and develop, to feel confident and good about themselves. Being creative gives our pupils curiosity and confidence. It raises self-esteem and helps them to develop new tools of communication.”last_img read more

Half-time: Man Utd 0 QPR 0

first_imgWith new manager Harry Redknapp watching from the stands, QPR made a resolute start at Old Trafford.Redknapp inherits a struggling side from Mark Hughes, whose team selection – made before he was fired on Friday morning – reflected the Welshman’s desire to get back to basics with the help of Rangers’ most trusted players.Esteban Granero was dropped to the bench along with Anton Ferdinand, Junior Hoilett and Samba Diakite.Stalwarts Clint Hill, Shaun Derry and Jamie Mackie were given starting places, while Stephane Mbia returned from a three-match ban.The changes had a noticeable effect, with Rangers much more solid than their thrown-together band of big-name signings have been so far this season.A great last-ditch challenge by Derry thwarted Paul Scholes, while Robin van Persie and Ashley Young both fired wide as Manchester United dominated much of the first half.Rangers threatened on the counter-attack and had the ball in the net when Mackie headed in, but the effort was rightly ruled out for offside.QPR: Julio Cesar, Dyer, Hill, Nelsen, Mbia, Traore, Derry, Faurlin, Mackie, Taarabt, Cisse. Subs: Green, Diakite, Ferdinand, Wright-Phillips, Granero, Ephraim, Hoilett.Click here for the QPR v Man Utd 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Raiders believe they have their tackles of the future

first_imgALAMEDA — Any chance the Raiders have of re-establishing Derek Carr as an upper tier quarterback rests with keeping him upright with a relatively clean pocket.Too often, that didn’t happen in 2018, making Carr’s numbers (68.9 completion percentage, 4,049 yards passing) encouraging enough to move ahead with a prosepective franchise quarterback.After being sacked only 36 times in 30 games in 2016 and 2017, Carr was dropped 51 times a year ago, numbers more closely associated with his brother …last_img read more

Special prayers for Mandela

first_imgPrayers and messages wishing former President Nelson Mandela a speedy recovery continue to flood in from around the world.(Image: Nelson Mandela Foundation) Churchgoers across the country joined thousands of people from all over the world wishing former South African President Nelson Mandela a quick recovery. Over the weekend churches around South Africa held vigils and said special prayers for the ailing Nobel Peace Prize laureate. “Let us light a candle and pray for the health of former president uTata Nelson Mandela,” said Pastor Joseph Kubheka of the Methodist church in Johannesburg’s Braamfontein suburb, at the morning service on Sunday.Many other churches in the country included similar prayers in their Sunday services. Over the past week, messages of support wishing Mandela a speedy recovery have poured in from all over the world.The elder statesman was admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg on Wednesday 26 January, suffering with an acute respiratory infection. He was discharged two days later to recuperate at his Houghton, Johannesburg, home, where he continues to receive specialist care.“Let us now unite in prayer and wish him a speedy recovery,” said African National Congress treasurer-general Mathews Phosa, who attended the prayer service organised by the ruling party and the Eastern Cape Council of Churches for Mandela at the Regent Hotel in East London on Sunday.A candle of hopeGauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane joined the congregation at Soweto’s famous Regina Mundi Catholic Church, praying for Mandela’s fast recuperation. As part of the Candle of Hope campaign, which encourages people to show their support for Mandela by lighting a candle of hope for his recovery, Mokonyane lit a candle bearing an image of the South African flag as prayers were said.At the Faith Mission Church of Christ in Vosloosrus, east of Johannesburg, the congregation sang songs and clapped in celebration of the anti-apartheid icon. “We want to wish uTata well, we hope he recovers soon,” said Ntate Jacob Motlana, one of the elders in the church.“There has been such a gloomy air surrounding our great hero’s hospitalisation, so by celebrating his life in our service today we are hoping to send some positive energy that will put uTata in good spirits. We hope he is not in pain and recovers soon.”Well-wishers congregated at the Da Vinci Hotel in Sandton, northern Johannesburg, on 29 January to light candles and pray for Mandela. The candle lighting ceremony was also aimed at sending prayers and positive energy to the veteran.“Light represents life and ignites warmth and good energy, so that is why we have lit candles,” said Gordan Dehl, who attended the ceremony. “We hope that as the candles burn they blow some positive energy that helps Mr Mandela heal soon.”World leaders, including US President Barack Obama, have also sent their best wishes to Mandela.“We truly appreciate the support and good wishes we received,” said South African President Jacob Zuma.Speaking at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Sunday, Zuma also wished the statesman a full recovery.“We wish him a long life and good health, as he continues to age with dignity and inspire all of us to strive to be better people each day.”last_img read more
