Transition Year students enjoyed some bonding time at Balbriggan beach on Monday and Friday of last week during double PE. They played volleyball, rounders and frisbee on the beach and some even braved the water!!
TY Adventure Trip.
180 transition year students took county Wicklow, by storm this week when they arrived at Kippure Adventure Centre for the annual TY adventure trip. The students had an unforgettable few days in the mountains enjoying many outdoor activities. Orienteering, archery, kayaking and clay shooting kept the girls busy, while their resolve was definitely tested navigating the hire wire and monster swing. New skills such as learning to make fire really caught the girls’ interest while participating in the mountain navigation and wilderness survival skills. The girls really returned exhausted but all agreed that they had a wonderful time.
Congratulations to our Ember Team who recently attended a three day training retreat in Ovoca Manor. The eight 5th year students engaged in Faith Leadership Training. The programme is coordinated by the Archdiocese of Dublin Education Secretariat. The students were given the opportunity for reflection, to develop their capacity for leadership and bond together as a team.
The Ember Team will now act as faith leaders in the school. It was a very enjoyable three days of training. Congratulations girls on receiving your certificates and Ember badges.
First Year News.
The first years attended an assembly on leadership on Friday. Head girls Adriana Ciot and Aisling Patterson spoke about their own leadership journey and the qualities required to be a good leader. Then the seven first year nominees for Student Council spoke to their peers. This was followed by the election of the three 1st year Student Council Representatives.
