This is a vey busy time of the year for the tran­si­tion year stu­dents of St.Bren­dan’s. The fol­low­ing are some of the ac­tiv­i­ties that they are in­volved in.


All stu­dents will be tak­ing part in their first work ex­pe­ri­ence ses­sion start­ing on Mon­day De­cem­ber 8. The work ex­pe­ri­ence will last for two weeks. They are ad­vised to get work ex­pe­ri­ence in an area where they might even­tu­ally look to make a ca­reer. Most stu­dents have se­cured po­si­tions at this stage and are looking very much for­ward to the ex­pe­ri­ence they will gain from it.


A group of stu­dents had a very in­ter­est­ing ex­pe­ri­ence last week when they had a work­shop on ’po­etry and rap’. It proved to be a very lively and in­ter­est­ing ses­sion. Fol­low­ing the ses­sion three of the stu­dents were nom­i­nated to gor for­ward to tke part in a spe­cial po­etry and rap com­pe­ti­tion. Owen Brett, Calum Whyte and Sean O’Reilly were the boys nom­i­nated.


St.Bren­dan’s an­nual Christ­mas Tree sale takes place at the school on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 6 and Satur­day De­cem­ber 13 start­ing at 9 am. As usual, Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents are run­ning it. All trees will be on sale for 35 each.


The stu­dents of St.Bren­dan’s had a very suc­cess­ful ceili on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 1 in the school. They were joined by the Tran­si­tion Year girls from Loreto Cel­lege, Bray. While both sets of stu­dents ap­peared very shy at the beginning, they even­tu­ally en­tered into the spirit of it fol­low­ing great en­cour­age­ment from Noreen Dodd, who or­gan­ised the ceili. A great time was had by all.


Each Tran­si­tion Year stu­dent will be in­ter­viewed this week with re­gard to the year so far. Ev­ery stu­dent has kept a log of events to date. They will be in­ter­viewed in re­la­tion to how ev­ery­thing has gone so far and feed­back will be got on all ac­tiv­i­ties to date.


Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents will be singing Christ­mas Car­ols at Su­perquinn, Bray, later this week in aid of ’Fo­cus Ire­land’.


All other years are pre­par­ing for their Christ­mas Ex­am­i­na­tions which take place from Tues­day De­cem­ber 16 un­til Tues­day De­cem­ber 23 in­clu­sive.
