Non Uniform Day for Cancer Research

We held a non-uniform day in Arklow CBS on Friday the 8th of October. All the proceeds went to the Cancer Research. Thank you to all who contributed to this very worthy charity.

Study Skills Workshop

Our 5th and 6th year students attended an in-school study skills workshop this week. The workshop was facilitated by Claire Cummins of Study Focus Ireland. The students got some great advice and tips on how to motivate themselves and how to improve their study skills. All students were provided with 2 booklets, a work booklet and resource booklet. It was a great success and our students are now equipped with the right tools and knowledge to further their learning journey. Thanks to Ms. Kinsella for organising.

Past pupil appointed Student Ambassador at St. Patrick’s Pontifical University Maynooth.

Congratulations and best wishes to our past pupil Mark Paul Behan on his appointment as Student Ambassador at St. Patrick’s Pontifical University Maynooth. Mark Paul was always a warm, friendly and caring student. He was a very popular liaison student during his years here in Arklow CBS. We are extremely proud of his achievement and wish him all the very best in his new role.

TYA Geography Beach Trip

TYA’s set off on Monday for a field study on South Beach, Arklow. The weather was fabulous, and a great time was had by all completing our experiments. Leaving Certificate Geography students complete a field study report worth 20% of their final exam so this was a great introduction to this!

TY's attended Stephen Hurley Health and Fitness this week to participate in their gym programme. To finish off the session a calorie burning competition was held. Well done to winning team Aaron O'Brien, Tom Byrne, Adam Collier and Marti Minguella. Well done also to Dennis O'Reilly who won the third place play off for his team.
