The Young So­cial In­no­va­tors Group is cur­rently busy re­hears­ing their drama pre­sen­ta­tion for the Speak Out Fo­rum in the He­lix on March 8th. Their pro­ject is called “D for Di­a­monds, D for Death “and deals with the sub­ject of con­flict di­a­monds and the de­struc­tion they cause to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties es­pe­cially in Sierra Leone, The Speak Out Fo­rum will give them an op­por­tu­nity to present their pro­ject to a wide au­di­ence which will in­clude Sr Stani­laus Kennedy, the founder of the Young So­cial In­no­va­tors and stu­dents from other par­tic­i­pat­ing schools.


Call­ing all young ath­letes and wannabees! With the good weather upon us now is the time to get fit. The run­ning club will meet ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day af­ter school in prepa­ra­tion for the up and com­ing track and field events. Ca­sual run­ners are wel­come.


Ms. Fitzger­ald, Mr. Cronin and Mr. Sillery es­corted three fifth year classes to the He­lix this week for a view­ing of Ham­let the Shake­spear­ian play on their Leav­ing Cert course. The bus left from out­side DCW shortly be­fore six and re­turned late. The evening was both en­ter­tain­ing and ed­u­ca­tional for all in­volved.


Over the midterm break Mr. O Brien's band of TY stu­dents in­volved with the Tan­za­nia pro­ject did a three day fundrais­ing bag pack in the lo­cal Tesco store. Many thanks are ex­tended to all who con­trib­uted fi­nan­cially and in­deed with their man­power. 3,230 euro was col­lected which is in­deed a tes­ta­ment to the good will and gen­eros­ity of the Wick­low com­mu­nity. Fu­ture fundrais­ing events are planned, a bric a brac sale on St. Pa­trick's week­end in O’Reilly’s shop on Lower Main Street, Wick­low, a bol­ly­wood dance work­shop and a set dancing ceilli in the GAA club on April 1st. Vol­un­teers are also be­ing re­cruited to run or walk in the women's mini marathon in June.

On March 16th Ms. Carthy and the Hockey Cap­tains are or­gan­is­ing a fundrais­ing in­ter class blitz in the school for Tan­za­nia. This is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for all those who have never tried hockey be­fore to give it a go!


DCW’s Show Jump­ing team has yet again made DCW proud while com­pet­ing in the Hoof­prints In­ter­schools league on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 26. The ju­nior team mem­bers con­sisted of Me­gan McCon­nell on Cora, Laura Hall on Rachel, Me­gan Clarke on Heidi, Seana Davis on Dusty, Drew Davis on Dusty, and a new mem­ber Re­becca Ma­hony on Te­quila Slam­mer made an ex­cit­ing ad­di­tion to the team. All of our team mem­bers and horses were turned out per­fectly and they had great per­for­mances. As a re­sult they came 3rd in the Novice competition.


Train­ing is once again un­der way on a Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. Good luck to all those who are pre­par­ing to com­pete in the Se­nior B Camogie Blitz on March 12 in Ark­low.
