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.
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.
The atmosphere in St Andrew's was electric and intense. It really felt like the competition was on!! At one point during the heated contest, team Dominican was joint first on the leader board. But we were surrounded by fierce competition! Although our team fell short of victory, we were glad that another all-girls school won
Participating on the quiz was a fantastic experience for the team and very good revision the coming Leaving Certificate. Well done to all the students involved, EimearDuff, Nabeeha Moolan, Jessica Gunnoo and Aoife Courtney.
