Trip to the Ploughing Championships

Tuesday saw some of our 3rd/TY/5th/6th Year students head off to Ratneniska, Co. Laois for the annual National Ploughing Championship. The lads had an early start, but it was worth it as a great day was had by all despite the atrocious weather. A special word of thanks to Mr. Kearney for organising and accompanying the students for what was a great experience and a fantastic day out.

Our 6th Years accompanied by their teachers Ms. Rooney and Mr. Cosgrove attended the Higher Options Seminar in the RDS, Dublin on Thursday. Higher Options provides students an opportunity to speak to representatives from third level institutions from Ireland, the UK, Europe and further afield. There was also various career talks and workshops for the students to attend. This was an invaluable and informative trip for our 6th Years. Thanks to Ms. Rooney for organising.

1st Year Taster classes


Our 1st Years have now completed rotation 1 of their taster classes. They will start rotation 2 on Monday morning. A timetable will be distributed to the 1st Year students in Tutorial class on Monday morning. We hope that they are all enjoying this experience. We believe that subject tasters classes offer the students an opportunity to sample as many subjects as possible before making their final decision at the end of term 1. More details on how to choose your preferred option will be issued to parents before the end of term 1.
