There was a Songschool work­shop for Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 17. The stu­dents were di­vided into 4 groups and each group com­posed a song. There were very im­pres­sive re­sults. The stu­dents per­formed their songs at the end of the day and we may hear these songs again at the end of year show. Many thanks to the 5th year band mem­bers made their con­tri­bu­tion on the day and to Ms Don­nelly who or­gan­ised the event.


Ann-Marie Far­rell from An Taisce re­cently vis­ited the school and spoke to the school’s Green Com­mit­tee. They had a very in­for­ma­tive talk about cli­mate change.


On Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary, 10 stu­dents in Lau­rels 2 CSPE Class in­vited in Jonathan Ir­wan, founder of the Jack and Jill Foun­da­tion to speak to them about the work it car­ries out. Mr. Ir­wan gave a very in­for­ma­tive talk, re­lay­ing that it was be­cause of the lack of fund­ing and sup­port when his son Jack was di­ag­nosed with a men­tal hand­i­cap that led to the found­ing of the foun­da­tion. The class was re­ally moved by the talk and are cur­rently or­gan­is­ing a cam­paign to col­lect old mo­bile phones. Each phone brought in means a do­na­tion of €10 for the char­ity. The money is then used to sup­ply nurses to care for the needs of the chil­dren, both in Wick­low and on a na­tional ba­sis.


On Fri­day, March 4, 46 5th year English stu­dents trav­elled to The He­lix DCU to see a pro­duc­tion of Shake­speare’s Ham­let. The play was very ben­e­fi­cial for all stu­dents. They were ac­com­pa­nied by their teach­ers Mr Ah­ern, Ms Os­borne and Ms Hed­der­man.
