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.
‘Dominican’s Got Talent’, a 4.1 Mini-Company production, took place on Thursday 12th of February 2009 in front of a sell-out crowd in the School Hall. All the performances on the night were of an excellent standard – congratulations to all those who participated.
The Junior section was won by Niamh Keogh, whilst the Senior section was won by Ciara Byrne.
The overall winner of ‘Dominican’s Got Talent’ was Sarah Dowling.
Profits from the show will go to the Irish Cancer Society and St. Francis Hospice.
4.1 would like to thank Ms. Butler and Ms. Halton for their support, the judges Ms. Mairead McGuire, Bernie Edgeworth and Fionnuala O’Sullivan, and the technical support of Mr. Robert Hurley, and all the other members of staff who helped out in any way.
Congratulations to the 4.1 Mini-Company production team and their teachers Ms. Diane Mohan and Mr. Sean McDermott.
We are delighted to announce that our Spanish debating team is up and running since last November! Our students from 5th and 6th year (Georgina Garrigan, Phillipa Mc Hale, Emma Lousie Hutchinson, Sarah Corcoran and Dawn Lonegran) meet on a weekly basis to practice debating topical issues which are likely to be found on the leaving cert syllabus. Unfortunately, there has not been enough interest to debate with other schools at competition level. However, we are practicing in the hope of competing with others next year and overall its great oral practice and so much fun!!
Well done to class 4.4 who represented all of the TY students in the Dublin City Enterprise Awards.
Congratulations to Gretchen Gaspari-McGuirk who won an iPod for the best individual student at the Enterprise Quiz and to Emma McMahon who was runner-up.
Good Luck to Orla Gartland in the final of the Doodle4Google competition. Orla was a county finalist in the 2nd Year section.
The public have now voted on their favourite doodle from each Year group and then the overall winner will be selected by Dennis Hwang, Google’s chief doodler, and revealed at Google's prize-giving event on March 2nd 2009. All county winners will be invited to attend this event.
Below is Orla’s design and her rationale behind it.
