Dr. Deirdre Butler at the  Microsoft
 Partners in Learning European Forum.

A number of different awards for outstanding projects in different categories were given by an international jury of education experts, led by Dr. Deirdre Butler, professor at St. Patrick’s College, Dublin.  Those who demonstrated the most innovative teaching practices using technology are then selected to attend the Partners in Learning Global Forum which will be held in Washington D.C. later this year.

Ms McHale and her class were delighted when the “Birds of Bray” project was awarded first runner up in the Knowledge Building and Critical Thinking category.  This project will now be further developed and they have been invited to present the project at the Global Forum in Washington D.C. in November 2011.

    2 collared doves - male and female preening eachother,1 blue tit singing at the top of his voice,Starlings building their nest,A jackdaw,3 woodpigeons,A few Rooks,And some hovering gulls above.I love birdwatching!!!
