On Wednesday 24th November all Transition Year students took part in the #ThinkLanguages event. The girls did 4 workshops during the day: A live Portuguese and Capoeira workshop, Russian & Ballet, Arabic & Bellydancing and Interpreting with Eu Interpreters.
The girls had great fun trying to master new forms of dance & martial art.
They also partook in a fun quiz and enjoyed some tasty treats kindly donated by the local Aldi, Lidl, Supervalu and Dunnes stores.
Many thanks to all the students for embracing the day and getting into the spirit of the event.
Local History
TY local History students visited Balbriggan  Harbour and Lighthouse this week. Next year, 2022, marks 260 years of the harbour. How many buildings built today will be around in 260 years?
On Friday TY Horticulture groups were very busy working on our new Sensory Garden.  A special thank you to Sarah Simpson of Tullys Nurseries for coming out to help us plant today. The carefully selected plants will add so much to the space and we look forward to seeing them flourish and grow.
 On Tuesday TY  students from the Fundraising Committee organised fundraiser for Irish Guide Association.  The girls were busy selling Christmas cards, toy dogs and calendars. Thank you to everyone who supported such a worthy cause.







Last Wednesday saw the final game on yet another very successful first-year Gaelic football blitz. Over the last eight weeks more than 100, first-year students participated in the blitz representing various GAA clubs from North County Dublin and Meath. The students displayed great enthusiasm throughout and were fantastic ambassadors for the game. A very special thank you to our fourth-year sports leadership team, who organised, managed, and refereed the various games. The blitz was a wonderful opportunity for first-year students to bond and form new friendships. We would like to wish the best of luck to our first years who play the second years this week and also to our first years will play in a blitz against our neighbouring Loreto in Swords on the 1st December.  The future is indeed very bright
