Amedeo Clemente Modigliani was an Italian painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. Primarily a figurative artist, he became known for paintings and sculptures in a modern style characterized by mask-like faces and elongation of form. Have a look at the slide show of our sketches below. We used shading to give a 3D effect to our work, and also took an interpretative slant on Modigliani's work!

6th Class Talent
The day of our Easter Holidays, 6th Class held a talent show in the school hall. Here they showcased a variety of talent in singing, dancing and playing instruments. They had an emcee to host the event and stage directors to control sound and lighting (thanks Brian MacCormack and Meighean Furlong). The judging panel, Mrs Hanrick and Mrs Kennedy, had a hard time deciding on winners as there was a multitude of talent there!
In the end, prizes went to the following:
- our very own songwriters and singers Freagh Kelly, Mary and Sarah Gittens
- guitar player Meighean Furlong
- soloist singer Daniel Nevin
Congratulations and a Big Well Done to all!

We learned loads of new things about the plants, animals and weather in different parts of the world. Some of us did our projects alone while others worked in groups. We presented the final project to the whole class and received a grade for information found, how we presented the project to the class and how it looked.
