Information Evening

This Wednesday saw parents/guardians of our current Third and Transition year students attend an information evening on Transition Year and Fifth Year. Parents were also given information on the new Physical Education specification for the Leaving Certificate. Fifth Years undertaking the new PE course will be the first ones to sit it at Leaving Certificate Level.

History Trip

Senior History cinema trip on Tuesday! 60 fifth & sixth year students braved the elements by making the trip to the cinema to watch the WWI epic 1917. It tells the story of Lance Corporals Blake and Schofield, soldiers stationed in France and their mission to deliver a message to troops at the front line who are readying an assault on the Germans. The students really enjoyed the movie, with many now wanting to explore Operation Alberich – Germany’s retreat into the Hindenburg Line as a possible history project for leaving cert. Jack O Reilly a leaving cert student commented that “the sheer destruction really brought home the true horrors of WWI”. Dylan Murray another Leaving Cert student with a keen interest in the great war said “I would not be able to cope with the horrors of trench warfare, the rats looked like they were on steroids”. Overall the students passed many positive comments on the movie and will now be stimulated to research this aspect of the Great War further. We here in the history department would like to thank Sean and all the staff at the Omniplex in Arklow. We have been to see many historically significant films over the last number of years from Black 47 to Selma to Darkest hour, and we have always been made feel very welcome. Many thanks to Mr. Cosgrove and Ms. Lee for organising and accompanying the students.
