September and October Activities in 5th Class

The boys in Rang a CĂșig have had a very busy start to the term. They have completed a block of gymnastics lessons as well as a few weeks of GAA training. They welcomed back three past pupils who have won minor and u20 All Ireland medals with Cork. There was great excitement when the boys wore pink to school and ran 5km in the yard in support of Breast Cancer Ireland.

The boys have been making great use of our class laptops and iPads for typing, research and their new Spellings for Me programme. As part of the Children’s Book Festival, the class had very interesting zoom calls with authors David Walliams and Melissa Shiels.

One of the most exciting activities was becoming part of the BodhrĂĄn Bookills, with some excellent socially-distanced peer tutoring from the pupils of 6th Class.

Well done to the 7 boys who won Principal’s Awards during the first few months.

Guitar Classes

There are Guitar Classes available again in St Joseph NS. There will be 5-6 students per class and the classes are 45 minutes each – there is a Covid protocol in place for the classes – available closer to the starting date.

The children learn how read sheet music and other methods of guitar music notation, playing melodies, chords and other advanced ways of playing the instrument. The students are introduced to a large variety of styles, songs and pieces the children like and enjoy playing – which makes practising much easier, motivating and rewarding.

I also teach classical guitar to students who have an interest or develop an interest in the subject after the boys have developed a good skill basis, which makes it easier to learn the classical methods.

There are a number of classes available for students of different levels. So if a child has already played for a year or so, he/she will not have to go through all the beginners stages again – I will be able to offer a group at the appropriate level.

For further information please get in touch.

Joerg Micansky has over 20 years of teaching experience of all age groups – he is living in Cork since 2004. He has studied classical guitar and piano in Muenster University in Germany and is a fully qualified teacher. He also runs a recording studio in Cork called French Quarter Studios ( and is a music producer and published songwriter with international releases.
