‘Our world Irish aid’ awards

On Tuesday the 14th of June, Max Robinson, Adam Hodder and Morgan Kinsella from 3rd and 4th class had the honour of attending the ‘Our world Irish aid’ awards in Farmleigh House with Ms Shaw and Max’s mum Kerry. Unfortunately, we couldn’t bring all 24 children, so it was Adam, Max and Morgan who were the lucky three that were randomly selected to attend the award ceremony. Back in February all the children in the class decided they wanted to make a stop motion video to highlight the work that Irish aid do to help people in developing countries. Part of the assignment was to integrate some of the 17 sustainable development goals. The final result was a sweet and thought provoking stop motion video which was deemed good enough to be selected as a finalist, for the ‘Our World Irish Aid’ awards. In May we found out that our project was shortlisted as a finalist. Out of 400 entries the children’s stop motion video made it to the last 15! An outstanding achievement from the class. Our day out in Farmleigh House will be one that the three children will certainly remember! A big thank you to Kerry Robinson who came with us on the day. We arrived at 11:30 and straight away were brought inside and told to help ourselves to delicious food! There were games set up for the children to play and even ice cream cones available, which of course the children and Ms. Shaw tasted! Max, Morgan, and Adam were asked to give an interview and talk about their project. They all were very comfortable in front of the camera and took the interview in their stride! Once the interviews were over and the ice cream was eaten, we attended an eventful presentation; the children met Minister Colm Brophy and had their picture taken with him. We didn’t walk away empty handed however, the children’s project won an ‘activity award’! Morgan, Adam, and Max represented the class and accepted the award from Minister Colm Brophy. It was a brilliant day out and the children in 3rd and 4th class showed excellent teamwork to create such a creative stop motion video! Well done to everyone in 3rd and 4th class
