Blog Awards Ireland works to celebrate

the very best in Irish blogging’. 


We were excited and delighted to hear

that our blog ‘If Only The Best Birds Sang’

appears on the ‘long list’ of nominations for 

Best Education Blog. We are there among

some very distinguished company.


Blog awards are encouraging for those who blog.

Our blog benefits from participating in this award,

just like in the past when we were involved in the

Eircom Junior Spiders Awards 

and Edublogs Awards 2013  


These competition encourage us to look at our blog

and think about how it could be improved.

For example we have worked hard on navigation

to make our blog more visitor friendly.  


What we like best about these awards is

that it helps us to connect more with others

beyond our own class and the school.


We hope that it may bring us more visitors.

We like visitors and we also like visiting other blogs.

We get great ideas from them about features,

designs and blogging tools we could use.


We look forward to checking out the other blogs

in the Blog Awards Ireland competition. If you are

a visitor to our blog, we would love to hear from you.

  1. Do we have to be Irish to vote or can we vote from New Zealand?

  2. Thank you very much, you are very kind however 🙂
    this competition is decided by a judging panel
    so no votes needed.

    I have signed up to judge the Youth category in this competition
    and am looking forward to doing that.

    I hope school is going well.
    You must be well settled in your ‘new’
    school by now.

    I see from Izzy’s Incredible iBlog
    that you are all working hard.
    I enjoyed being reminded of the ‘mihi’
    which Isabelle posted recently.

    We are still on our holidays until 1st September.
    Then we begin our new school year.

    With every good wish.

  3. Congratulations, Merry Beau. Any blogs that get nominated for an award are worthy of the prizes. If I had known the competition was on, I would have nominated your blog myself.

    Many thanks for all the commenting you do on my student blogs as well as those class blogs starting out on the blogging journey.

  4. Thanks Sue.
    You are very kind.

    I really enjoy commenting on student blogs.
    Part of the reason is that I see here with
    my students how encouraged they are
    when people comment.

    They realise they are writing for a ‘real’
    audience so they are motivated to do their
    very best. It’s like ‘magic’. 😉

    With every good wish,
    Merry Beau

  5. Hi and congratulations on your nomination.

    Thank you, as well, for your great comment on our class blog post about Maths and Art. We really appreciated the time you spent in crafting your comment to share your thoughts with us.

    Mrs S and 5/6 CS

  6. Dear Mrs. S, Thank you for commenting and for your kind words.

    Your blog post was very clever. We had looked at art by Mondrian

    too and made our own geometric pictures, but we never thought to

    measure the angles and calculate the supplementary angles.

    But now we have seen what a good idea this is, we will do it

    next time. Thank you for sharing. That is one of the great

    things about blogging, you get to see great ideas from other

    classrooms. Thanks again and

    with every good wish,

    Merry Beau
