THE students and teachers at Lisheen NS outside Skibbereen have just made a wonderful video to mark World Safer Internet Day.

The video, which tells the story of the village gossip and the feather pillow, was filmed in the school playground and carries a very strong message.

It explains how putting gossip online is like splitting open a feather pillow and letting the wind carry the feathers away. But when you try to collect all the feathers again, you can never get them all back.

That's what happens when we spread gossip online - we can never take it all back.

There's a lesson in there for all of us.

It's no surprise that Lisheen National School continues to impress - after all, wasn't it here the wonderful O'Donovan rowing brothers learned their own life lessons!
