TY students Shane Gregory, Sé Killoran, Conor Wilson and Kory Merrigan went to Portlaoise Education Centre for the second round of The Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition recently. In order for the students to progress to the second round the boys had to create a video explaining how they can make farming sustainable. Their video was selected from hundreds of entries from round two. The second round consisted of an in-person interview with the three sponsors of the competition Kepak, ABP and Certified Irish Angus. The students were interviewed on their video entry and asked about how they would promote the bred of Angus Beef to the Irish farmer. Best of luck to the students and fingers crossed for round three.

Senior Art Trip

Last Thursday saw our senior art students with their teacher Ms. Charlton head to the National Gallery of Ireland and the Hugh Lane Gallery. The students enjoyed the fabulous exhibitions in both galleries. A great day was had by all.
