Congratulations to the school tennis team on coming runner up in the Loreto Tennis Competition on Wednesday. Well done also to the camogie team on their performance in the Dublin quarter final. Hard luck to the U-15 soccer team on losing narrowly in the Leinster final.
A group of TY students availed of the opportunity to visit DELL Computers. The girls got a tour of the state of the art Computing centre in Cherrywood and got a good sense of what it is like to work in IT. The trip was part of DELL's outreach programme 'IT - It's not just for Geeks'. Many thanks to DELL, and in particular Elaine Collins for her wonderful guidance and encouragement to the girls.
