We are delighted to bring you notification that the Creative Clusters Initiative will continue into the next school year and that funding has been secured to enable a new Creative Cluster to be formed in West Cork to run over the next 2 school years. This very successful project has been running in West Cork over the past 4 years and the feedback from schools who have taken part and who are currently involved has been extremely positive.
Please see below further details for application.
West Cork Education Centre will welcome applications up to Friday the 14th of May. A cluster can consist of a mix of Primary and Post Primary schools or be made up of just one sector. A cluster can have between 3 and 5 schools involved. A cluster can be made up of a group of schools who are currently working together on another project or can be a new grouping with a common goal in mind.
We look forward to receiving your applications.

I have a very exciting surprise for your pupils again and I hope you will participate!
I have organised our Ballymaloe trained chef with 30 years’ experience – Glena Casey, to do another live session ‘Bake along’ with Glena - Making chocolate chip cookies with pupils in West Cork primary schools, on Monday 8th March at 3.30pm.
Capacity for the webinar is 500, so the first 500 pupils to register can attend. It is ‘First come, first served’!! It’s a free event.
So families/pupils need to go onto our website and register immediately. Once registered, they will get the Zoom link before the session.
Please find below the recipe. Pupils will need to have all the ingredients ready and weighed out before the Zoom session starts. Put all the ingredients in different bowls. Make sure the butter is at room temperature for ease of beating. Have a food mixer ready and a baking tray with parchment paper. Glena will make the chocolate chip cookies live on Zoom, pupils can follow her as she goes.
I’m hoping that it can be a family event in their homes. As it’s a webinar, pupils’ cameras and sound will be turned off. However, pupils can ask questions in the chat function and I will moderate the chat and ask Glena the questions.
Glena is excellent, I saw her making these cookies on zoom already and I know the pupils will love it!
Looking forward to this!
