On Tuesday morning, 15th September Ms Gordon, the Senior Prefects and 1st Year Jewish Studies students broadcast our first assembly of the year to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Rabbi Lent joined online.

The broadcast was delivered on a Teams meeting from the Computer Lab while the teachers in their base classrooms joined the Teams meeting through the teacher's PC. The meeting was projected to the screen and everyone watched as 'normal'!

While there were technical hiccups - every day we learn so much - it was a great success! It proved that we could do it quite easily!

Thanks to the Senior Prefects, the 1st years who spoke so well, Cian who spoke about Green Schools initiatives and Ms O'Kelly who talked about the technical challenges that we face daily. Patience is key!

Ms Gordon shared two videos with us to watch: "Song of Hope" by a Principal from Alabama who became a YouTube sensation and secondly RTE's 'Together Apart' broadcast featuring Rabbi Lent.
