This week we remembered ‘The Sack of Balbriggan’ a defining episode in the war of independence, which occurred on September 20th, 1920. Many thanks to Ms.Caffrey from the History department who recalled the events of that fateful night 100 years ago.
This week the 4A and 4B took part in the ‘Develop Me’ workshops. The workshops focus on team building through fun challenges and encourage students to set personal goals to get the most out of TY.
The rest of TY will participate in the workshops next week.
The student council held its first meeting of the new academic year on Wednesday. First on the agenda was the upcoming student council elections which will take place in the coming weeks. The engagement of the student voice in actions and decisions which shape their learning environment is at the centre of our leadership structures. The student council plays an important role in this process. Council members are elected by their peers to represent them and work with the principal, deputy principals and staff on the various issues and topics.
