Five Galway Schools will represent Ireland at the Microsoft Innovative Education Forum that takes place in Moscow from the 22nd to the 24th of March. Clontuskert NS, Woodlawn NS, Attymon NS, Athenry Boys and Scoil Chaitríona Renmore are five of sixteen schools taking part in a unique collaborative, cross curricular project called Keep on Track that connects schools from Galway to Dublin along the Inter City Rail Line.
WE are one of the schools involved, and our mascot is going to represent our school and our class at this event.
A launch day will be held in the Radisson Hotel in Galway on June 9th 2011 where schools will present their Project Findings. A Special Irish Rail train will bring all schools involved to and from Galway for the day of celebration. The project’s blog http://www.keepontrack.scoilnet.ie/ is updated by schools on a regular basis. During the Innovative Education Forum updates from school mascots will appear on the blog to inform everyone of the progress of the project in the competition.
