Creativity/Positivity Week

Posted on : May 20, 2021

Inspired by the National Creative Schools Week, Sligo Grammar School  dedicated the week of 10th to 14th May to Creativity and Positivity. The whole school got the chance to let their hair down via a selection of activities aimed at encouraging creativity and positivity. TY and 5th year students worked with Ms McGuinness and other teachers to organise activities such as dance workshops, quizzes and bingo for the junior classes. Our Debating Club, SGS DebSoc, ran an on-line debate which classes tuned in to hear. The motion was “This House Believes that Irish should be an optional subject.” A Whole-School Art Project ran throughout the week and the results will be on permanent display for all to see when we get back to school in late August.  The highlight of the week came on Friday as the whole school, staff and students, enthusiastically dressed up in costumes inspired by the fashions and stars from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. For a lot of teachers it was a case of re-visiting their teens! The Leaving Cert students were delighted to dress up as Friday was their Valedictory Day, and with the Covid-19 restrictions it was the only opportunity they would have to dress up and have fun!  The week was beautifully rounded off by a virtual concert from our more musical students, also on Friday. The Creativity/Positivity week was a great success, despite the limitations imposed by Covid-19. Thank you to all who made it possible! Photos can be seen HERE
