Outreach at Rathore
The following students went to Rathore Special School on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th December to record their Primary and Secondary Christmas Concerts: Stephen Crothers 131; Anthony Kavanagh 136; Christopher McGuinness 131; Leigh McManus 136; Neill O’Higgins 134; Caolan Smyth 131 Brendan Digney 12G.
These students will be helping develop the new link between St Colman's and Rathore and were very professional on the days we recorded.Mr Pat Mathers teacher at Rathore has been the driving force behind this collaborative project. He has been working alongside Mark Doran from St Colman's Music Department with a Post 16 Rathore class teaching students Music Technology and Digital Media. They have formed a news group called ‘Rathore News 4 U’ the members of which have been learning how to take their own photos and conduct their own interviews.
Most of the class had never used a digital camera before and are now budding photographers. In Term 2 we hope to move on to using camcorders and produce a live broadcast of Rathore News 4 U throughout the school.
The photos were taken by Amy Donnelly a student at Rathore Special School
