Junior Cycle Results.
Congratulations to our Transition Year students who received their Junior Cycle results on Wednesday. It was wonderful to see everyone so happy after a difficult couple of years of school closures and remote learning. All their hard work, along with guidance from their teachers has paid off.
Transition Year News.
On Thursday, all Transition Year students participated in #ThinkLanguages Day. It was a rewarding and culturally enriching day for all of the students. The students participated in a mixture of recorded and live workshops in Japanese, Portuguese & Capoeira as well as quizzes throughout the morning.
The JPIC Gamechangers group participated in a workshop on Global Citizenship and Game Design with Stephen Farley the Education Officer from Trocaire. The group is involved in a competition to design and build an educational game that raises awareness of Global Injustices.
Well done to Jessica Chen and Lauren O’Neill who took part in the Local Heat for the Soroptimist Public Speaking Competition on Saturday. Jessica gave a very powerful speech on Peace & Democracy and Lauren’s speech on Friendship was extremely touching. Unfortunately, neither student progressed to the Regional Heat but congratulations to both on their tremendous efforts.
Congratulations to Aoibhinn Hegarty, who came second in the U16 breaststroke race at the recent Loreto Interschools Swimming Gala. Congratulations also to Maria Kozak and Keeva Killeen who qualified for the finals in their age group. The swimming gala is also a special day for us to remember our dear student Rafaella Costin. This year there was a special memorial race in Rafaella’s honour, where each school nominated a senior swimmer to represent their school in a 50m swim.
