“Something Fishy" Programme is here again!

Do Mhúinteoirí Rang V nó VI

Following the nationwide success of ” in schools last year, Carrick-on-Shannon Education Centre is inviting schools to participate, once again, in this year’s programme, which is aimed at 5th and 6th classes in Primary school.

There are eight lessons on the web site that support the SESE programme. Teacher support material and information are available on the site as well as the interactive lessons for children. AND THEY ARE ALL FREE!Check out www.somethingfishy.ie

Throughout the year your pupils are asked to let us know how they are enjoying their participation in the Something Fishy programme by posting photographs, poetry, art work, videos etc. etc. on the new Something Fishy upload facility.

Later in the school year, when the pupils have completed their lessons, they will participate, where possible, in a supervised fieldtrip to your local river, where they will learn about water quality, fish, the environment and angling. Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) officers will conduct different experiments with them, including ‘kick sampling’ and ‘electric fishing’ as they judge the overall health of the river.

If you would like your school to participate in the Something Fishy Programme, during this school year, please complete the attached form and return it to Carrick-on-Shannon Education Centre by Fri 18th October 2019.
