Well done to all our First Years who took part in the Handball blitz organised by our LCA 1 Class last week. The first years have been learning how to play Handball in their PE classes. Some of our First & Second Year students will travel to Roscommon on 24th Oct to play in a Doubles tournament. Well done to Charlotte Burke & Cormac Heneghan who were runners up and to Ellen Murray & Ethan Green who were the winners.
Our excellent Leaving Cert Geography students had a fantastic week at Silverstrand Galway conducting their Geographical Investigation under the guidance of Ms.Canny and Ms.Maher. This is 20% of their leaving cert grade as they meticulously measured and studied coastal processes and landforms. The sun shining was a bonus…well done all involved!
Ms Clesham organised a very interesting public speaking programme for Transition year students recently with Alan Devine ( Actor in Fair City). The students were afforded the opportunity through a series of fun workshops to get up on their feet and talk. The aim was to help the students find confidence in their voice , connect with their audience and create and deliver a short speech. The students really enjoyed the experience . On their first day with Alan they were encouraged to discover the basic skills required to present themselves and their ideas to an audience in an interesting and engaging manner. On day 2, each student delivered a short speech which they had created. Alan complimented the effort put in by the students and the students found the whole experience very enjoyable .
