Schools celebrate 1500 years since the birth of Colmcille
To celebrate the 1500th anniversary of Colmcille's birth, the Nerve Centre Creative Learning Centre facilitated a cross border Colmcille Digital Schools' folklore project.
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.
