ACC were Run­ners Up in the Ju­nior Sec­tion with ‘The Dog Sit­ters’ and also in the Se­nior Sec­tion with their play: ‘Af­ter School Spe­cial’.

Well done to all in­volved.


On Fri­day, March 9, ACC in con­junc­tion with its Pol­ish par­ents cel­e­brated the an­nual fes­ti­val of Tlusty Czwartek (Fat Thurs­day). It was a chance for our Pol­ish stu­dents and their par­ents to share de­tails of their cul­ture and home­land with Ir­ish friends. Food and mu­sic was pro­vided by our Pol­ish par­ents and Pol­ish stu­dents gave Pow­erPoint and 2D rep­re­sen­ta­tions of their home towns. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Ark­low In­ter­cul­tural net­work (AIN) Ark­low So­cial In­clu­sion Net­work and Co. Wick­low Part­ner­ship were also in at­ten­dance. The ven­ture was funded by ARDS (Wick­low County Coun­cil’s Anti-Racism and Di­ver­sity Strat­egy) through County Wick­low part­ner­ship and the feed­back from those who at­tended was very pos­i­tive.


Well done to the Ir­ish Team! Congratulations to the Ir­ish Paraolympic soc­cer team es­pe­cially past pupil Dar­ragh Snell on their suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pa­tion in their tour­na­ment last week. The matches took place in Peamount sta­dium and a num­ber of 5th and 6th year stu­dents at­tended the match against Hol­land last Wed­nes­day to of­fer their sup­port. Dar­ragh played ex­tremely well and it was a great thrill to see him play in the Ir­ish jer­sey.


The 5th and 6th year Leav­ing Cert. Ap­plied Hor­ti­cul­ture and Agri­cul­tural stu­dents had a fan­tas­tic trip to the most won­der­ful Botanic Gar­dens in Glas­nevin last week. The stu­dents were fas­ci­nated by the many ex­otic plants and the his­tory of the gar­dens. It also pro­vided the stu­dents some ideas on how they should be pre­par­ing their al­lot­ments in the school grounds over the com­ing weeks.


Well done to the girls Gaelic foot­ball team who par­tic­i­pated at a blitz in Pearse Park last Thurs­day. They may not have won but they cer­tainly en­joyed the day!


Congratulations to all the Pol­ish stu­dents and their par­ents for a very suc­cess­ful Pol­ish Cel­e­bra­tion last Fri­day in the school. The stu­dents put a lot of time and ef­fort into pre­par­ing for the day.There was won­der­ful aro­mas of Pol­ish food, mu­sic and a pow­erpoint pre­sen­ta­tion by dif­fer­ent stu­dents on their home towns in Poland. It was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to show­case their beau­ti­ful coun­try and very in­for­ma­tive for stu­dents not so fa­mil­iar with Poland. Well done to all in­volved.


A re­minder to par­ents and stu­dents that there is no school on March 17 but school will be open as usual for all stu­dents on Fri­day, March 18.
