This Friday, the 18th May, we are having a ‘Sick of Plastic Day’ as one small step in making a joint contribution to reducing the large quantities of plastic that are consumed every second of every day around the world. Our environment is becoming more littered every day and our food chain is becoming contaminated. We are asking all students to do a little so that together we can do a lot!!! So this Friday in order to reduce the amount of plastic we use, please only bring to school sustainable plastic and not bring single use plastic bottles etc to school.
In order to prepare for the day we had a viewing today of the documentary from sky news called: ‘A Plastic Whale’ which was about a dead whale which was found with its stomach full of plastic packaging. It is a very sad reflection on what is happening to our environment under our watch.
Summer Exams are being held in the Sports hall on the 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st May. Timetables available here.
Best of luck to Aoife Sheehy 5th Year who travels to Athlone IT to take part in the Connacht Championships. She competes in the 100m Hurdles & the 400m Hurdles.

The Leaving Cert Applied students visited the Bank of Ireland today and spoke to a bank representative as part of their English assignment. The students prepared questions and they were all answered. The bank was most happy to facilitate, they offered financial advice and informed the students about self-service facilities. They were delighted to assist in this project.
