Schools celebrate 1500 years since the birth of Colmcille

Schools celebrate 1500 years since the birth of Colmcille

Working with five schools in Derry/Londonderry and 5 schools in Donegal, this project saw the creation of ten animations based on the life of Colmcille, along with a comic book developed from the pupils' animations. Each of the schools received in-depth teacher training to facilitate their class in the creation of their animation. Due to covid this project was completed with training and in-class support provided online.

We would like to say a huge congratulations to the following schools who took part in this project:

  • Scoil Naomh Cholmcille, Troy Island, Co. Donegal
