ST. THOMAS’ CC
BREAKFAST CLUB OUTING
Students who regularly attend the Breakfast Club were treated to breakfast at Eddie Rockets last Monday morning. The students were accompanied by their teacher Ms. Kavanagh and thoroughly enjoyed their outing.
On Wednesday December 3, eight Transition Year students represented St. Thomas’ at the first annual WorldWise Student Conference in Croke Park, along with groups of students from other schools involved in school partnerships under the WorldWise programme. Participants were invited to showcase the outcomes of their projects by creating a Global Village marketplace where they shared learning and new ideas.
The keynote speaker was the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Lesotho. Her Excellency Mrs. Mannete Ramail, was particularly interested in St. Thomas’ students display since their partner school is in Lesotho.
The students participated in workshops focussing on Development Education and in the afternoon the Global Village was open to visiting schools.
Transition Year students are beginning their two week work experience placement this week. Wishing all students the very best of luck.
Thirty-five Fifth and Sixth Year students visited the 7Up Christmas on Ice at the RDS on Thursday. A great day was had by all, especially the Sixth Year students who welcomed a break from their intensive studies.
The school basketball team played a tough match in Sallynoggin last Friday. Unfortunately the team lost 48-39. They will face St. Michaels’ College next week at home. Best of Luck!
