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 .
A huge thank you to some of our 2nd Year students, Nadine Walsh, Aisling Kelly, Maeve Ryder, Megan Hanley, Amy Mullarkey, Leah McHolm and our TY Students Emma Turner and Sarahkate Nestor who did trojan work today in helping out with the Happy Hearts Appeal in various locations around the town. A huge thank you to the kind business people who gave our students refreshments and our appreciation to so many for contributing to such a worthy cause.
