Study Skills: This week our first years completed the study skills programme. This study skills programme shares with the students the awareness and skills which will help them to succeed at the early stages of their life in secondary school. The programme reflects the changes taking place at Junior Cycle, placing them at the centre of teaching and learning. The sooner a student settles in, the more successful their academic outcomes are in secondary school. The students attended the programme over two days and thoroughly enjoyed it.

6th Year Macbeth: 6th Year Students enjoyed the day at the dlr Mill Theatre in Dundrum where they enjoyed seeing Macbeth which is part of their Leaving Certificate course.


Good Luck: Goodluck to all of our Students who are competing int he under 18 championship final with Lucan Sarsfileds this weekend and good luck also to Lauren Strong who is part of the DLR Waves team that are playing Shamrock Rovers in the Women's National League Final this weekend.

National Gallery: On Monday a group of 5th year students visited the National Gallery as part of their Visual Culture Leaving Cert course. This was a great experience and the students enjoyed it thoroughly.

Cinnire Team: A big thank you to the Cinnire team who organised a bake sale to raise funds for the upcoming 1st year Friday club. Many thanks to any student who helped bake.


TY: Rehearsals / Chocolate Factory: Transition Year musical rehearsals are in full swing now with the main cast announced last week and with the show less than five weeks away excitement is beginning to build. Ticket information will be released soon.

A group of Transition year students travelled to the Chocolate Garden of Ireland chocolate making workshop which was a real treat. The students learnt all about chocolate making and even made some of their own creations but of course the highlight was sampling the delicious treats.

A group of Transition Years have been working very hard so far this year as part of the Joeys Tidy Towns, you may see them picking up litter in the village on Friday evenings. The Transition Years are completing this task as part of their Gaisce Presidents award, keep up then good work.

LCVP Work Experience: Our 5th Year LCVP students and a number of our 6th year LCVP students went on work experience this week as part of the requirement of their Leaving Certificate course. This is an invaluable experience for our student into the world of work and we thank all of the business and organisations who very warmly welcomed them.
