Fáilte & Welcome
Céad Míle Fáilte to all our readers, whether parent, student, teacher, past student or someone interested to find out about our fine College.
6th Year Biology students carried out their Ecology fieldtrip to Portrane’s rocky seashore on Thursday 28/9/17. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and encountered many new flora and fauna as well as first hand observation of predator/prey relationships within the habitat. Our students got to use all sorts of equipment associated with the ecosystem study and really got hands on with the practical. The whole experience is sure to aid our students in their revision of Ecology for the Leaving Certificate Exam. We were extremely lucky with the weather and rushed back in time for the parent-teacher meeting.
We were delighted to welcome back Emma Gaffney to our school mass. Having achieved two H1’s in Physics and Biology, she is this year’s worthy winner of the prestigious Anne Kernan award. This award is given to the student with the two best science subjects who goes on to study a science subject at third level and Emma has started her studies in Trinity College Dublin studying Human Health and Disease.
We wish Emma all the best in her studies and she has already volunteered to return to talk to our science students in the future. Emma is pictured below with her mother Ms. Mairéad Gaffney and Dr. Olive Laffoy (Principal).
Well done to the minor camogie girls who have made it to the Dublin finals. They will play St. Mary's College from Nás na Ríogh in Good Counsel GAA on Friday 19th May at midday. Beir bua!
Transition Year students from 4.2 enjoyed the great experience of witnessing the Credentials ceremony at Áras An Uachtaráin on Thursday, April 28th. New Ambassadors from Mozambique, El Salvador and Nepal handed in their Credentials to President Higgins. Each student got to greet President Higgins and enjoyed a small reception with refreshments after a tour of the Aras. Emma Wakeham made it extra special by performing a piece of music on the grand Piano in the reception room.
