Students from Gaelscoil an Chaistil have proved they have the ‘write’ stuff when it comes to near handwriting!

Last week saw pupils practising their handwriting skills in preparation for National Handwriting Day this week.

The school held a handwriting competition for each class which saw children link their love for reading, handwriting and technology. Some children chose their favourite book, favourite poems, and their favourite piece of written work to practise their handwriting. As well as using the traditional pen and paper method, some pupils experimented with a more modern and interactive method; the interactive whiteboard.

“In conjunction with National Handwriting Day, the children produced different pieces of writing and put their excellent ICT skills to use enjoying interactive handwriting activities on the interactive whiteboard,” said a spokesperson for the school.

“A winner from each class was selected and was awarded a certificate and £10 An Cheathrú Póilí, Cultúrlann, Béal Feirste voucher.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the competition and set themselves a personal target to maintain a high standard of handwriting in work across the curriculum.”
