Legion of Mary

2021/05/19 10:51:08

Every year around this time The Legion of Mary visit the school to talk to our sixth-year students ahead of their Leaving Certificate exams. Eileen and Aileen always give a lovely talk to the boys about the devotion to Our lady, the power of prayer and faith and especially to wish the boys the best in their exams and the future. For the past two years Covid has prevented this talk unfortunately. However, today Eileen and Aileen came to the school and gave a socially distanced talk to six of our sixth years. Two Rose bushes were planted for the leaving cert classes of 2020 and 2021. Aileen and Eileen left miraculous medals, a prayer card and a booklet explaining the origin and meaning and significance of the miraculous medal. There is one of each of these items for every sixth-year student who wishes to take one. Thanks again to Jamie Moore in 3rd Year for his excellent photography.

Green Schools Committee

2021/05/18 08:40:34

Last Thursday, the Green Schools Committee made signs and posters about car idling. The committee urges drivers to turn off engines when waiting. Driving leads to pollution and health risks and is the reason why Ireland has the third highest emissions of greenhouse gases per capita in the EU. We ask that those who can walk or cycle, please do so and those who do drive to and from school to turn their engines off while parked outside of the school. Every 1 minute spent Idling is equal to 1 km of driving. And for every 5 minutes spent idling, 1kg of CO2 is released. Please click 'View gallery' for more images.

Green Schools Committee

We, the Green Schools Committee, have noticed that many of the students get to school by driving. Of course this is sometimes necessary, due to living far away from the school, but for many of the students they are within walking distance from the school. Driving leads to pollution and health risks and is the reason why Ireland has the third highest emissions of greenhouse gases per capita in the EU. We ask that those who can walk or cycle, please do so and those who do drive to and from school to turn their engines off while parked outside of the school. Every 1 minute spent Idling is equal to 1 km of driving. And for every 5 minutes spent idling, 1kg of CO2 is released. Thank you for reading this statement and we hope that you consider doing your part in helping the planet and cleaning the air. The Green Schools Committee









Irish Architecture Foundation- Architects in Schools workshop

2021/05/10 15:50:02

The school ran a workshop as part of the 'Architects in Schools' initiative with Ghinlon Architects on Friday 7th February. Architect Ghinlon Wang hosted the event in which he outlined how to become an architect and what the career entails. The main element of the workshop was a design task that required students to design a device/ costume that allowed a superhero of their choice to socially distance from others. The students really enjoyed sketching out their ideas and using models to test their solutions. They arrived with some very innovative and clever designs. Please see photos attached of the students work. They really engaged with the process and seemed to enjoy the event. The workshops provided a valuable insight into the design process and how architects think and work. There were a number of students present who are very interested in studying architecture and can use the experience when preparing a portfolio for college courses and interviews. Many thanks to Mr. Fitzpatrick for his help in organising this workshop Please click 'view gallery' to see all images.
