The European Parliament Strasbourg in Spring

Congratulations to Rodrigo Soberon Pena from 5th year on winning a terrific prize for the school with his superb poster. The theme of the Euroscola Poster Competition was to show a snapshot of everyday life in Europe, as the 1916 Rising was unfolding in Ireland.

A group of 5th year and TY students from Mr. A O Neill and Ms. D Mc Quaid’s class entered the competition in which Rodrigo’s winning entry secured a trip for 24 students and 2 teachers to take part in the Euroscola programme of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the 30th March 2017.

Euroscola is a European Parliament program that gives young people the opportunity to discuss their expectations and ideas on the progress of European integration and to share this day with young people from other European Union countries.

There is great excitement about the upcoming trip and we are very proud of Rodrigo on his superb poster and also to the other students that took part in the competition. Strasberg here we come!

LCA Hampers

The LCA students have finished organising and filling the hamper boxes for The Vincent De Paul. The hampers look great and hopefully will bring some joy to families this Christmas.

The boys did a super job!

When It All Adds Up

The Maths Department ran a 1st year quiz for "Maths Week" which ran from

17th -21st October. It took place in the old sports hall and great fun was had by all involved.

Stop Everything and Read Week

Some students from 2 South taking part in the Stop Everything and Read Week which took place from Monday 10th - 14th October in school.

On the first day all students read a story with their English teachers called 'A Sound of Thunder' by Ray Bradbury. The remainder of the week students were allowed time to read from 11.20 - 11.40am each day.

It was great to see the students reading from books and to draw to their attention the importance of reading.

 

Off The Rails

In October the Transition Year pupils led by chief innovator and site foreman Mr. J Cunningham and Mr.O Deneher TY Coordinator. The team worked on improving the visual appearance of our school. This involved about sixty student’s cleaning/sanding/painting all the railings at the front, which needed an urgent facelift. A smaller group carried out other gardening and cleaning tasks around the school.

Great to see in our boys a sense of community spirit, to experience working as part of a team and to see what can be achieved as a result.

The pupils were great to work with, taking pride in their work and as a result the school is now looking great. Well done to all involved.
