Well done to Niamh Doory & Jane Ryder who participated in the Regional Poetry Aloud competition in St. Enda’s Galway. A large number of students took part in this National Competition where participants had to recite two poems. The girls performed really well and really enjoyed the day. They plan to work with our First Years in order to encourage them to take part in this very enjoyable competition. Thanks to Ms Grehan for working with the girls and preparing them for the competition
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, Fr Fergal and a group of senior students attended the Young SVP Social Justice Conference today in Knock. They joined other students from Galway, Mayo and Roscommon for a very inspirational day. The aim of the day was to inspire students in the West Region to learn more about social issues and help them to get involved in youth led social action with the Young SVP Programme. The interactive dimension appealed to the young people and they were involved in lots of activities throughout the day. The special guest speakers Fr Peter McVerry, John Lonergan, Joanne O’Riordan and Dr Cara Augustonborg were inspirational in every way and lead the discussions at each table along with other people from varied backgrounds.Special thanks to Paddy Daly ( Youth Development Officer) and his team for organising a very inspirational day for everyone.
