Back to the ‘80s

Bray People - - Schools Report -

the­atre, ra­dio and fes­ti­vals across the world. Niall came to our school and per­formed to many classes. Each ses­sion was unique, mix­ing tra­di­tional Ir­ish sto­ries of Cu Chu­lainn and Fionn with per­sonal anec­dotes from his trav­els and child­hood. All were mes­merised by his per­for­mance and stu­dents are now flock­ing to the li­brary to re-live the ex­pe­ri­ence with his au­dio cds A great day was had by all and Niall had this to say about our stu­dents: ‘Th­ese young peo­ple, and the at­ten­tion, re­spect and en­thu­si­asm they gave, are a credit to the school and the com­mu­nity.’

OPEN DAY

Wed­nes­day last saw many vis­i­tors to our school as we held our open day. This was a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal pri­mary school pupils to visit our school and find out about our school and the wide range of sub­jects avail­able. Stu­dents came from the lo­cal schools and were given a guided tour by our tran­si­tion year stu­dents. There was also the op­por­tu­nity for par­ents of per­spec­tive pupils to visit our school as we had an open night on the same day. We would like to wish a warm wel­come to all who are think­ing of send­ing their chil­dren to our school and a huge thank you to all the stu­dents and staff who helped out on th­ese oc­ca­sions.

ICE-SKAT­ING

Our tran­si­tion year stu­dents had great day out at the RDS 7UP on ice ex­pe­ri­ence re­cently. The stu­dents re­ally en­joyed them­selves as they whizzed around the ice. Mr. Con­nolly turned out to be an ex­pe­ri­enced skater but it was Ms. Karp and Ms. Burke who stole the show as they per­formed a triple lutes and a dou­ble axle much to the amaze­ment of our stu­dents! Ms. Karp and Ms. Burke are our two vis­it­ing teach­ers from the USA and both are keen skaters. They were able to as­sist our stu­dents and in par­tic­u­lar Ms. Karp gave a daz­zling dis­play of her fancy foot­work on ice! Ms. McKier­nan also gave some fine dis­plays of her ice-danc­ing skills whilst Ms. Bools watched from the safety of the chocolate foun­tain!!!
