CYCLE TO WORK DAY
The work of our Green School's Committee continues apace in our bid to achieve our next green flag. we were delighted to participate in the National Cycle to Work Day on March 10.
Students and staff set out early in the morning in thankfully fine cycling conditions and really made the effort.
One student cycled 25kms to make it to school that morning. Well done to all. Remember this is not just a one-off activity.
Those especially living near school could cycle more often. Fill those cycle rack, get fit and help the environment.
WORLD BOOK DAY 2011
Students took part in various activities to mark World Book Day this year such as extra reading, book reviews etc. One such event was a design a bookmark competition for Junior Cycle students. The standard of creativity and presentation was excellent. Well done to the winners who were Toby Barry (1st Year), Ciaran Gaynor (2nd Year) and Megan Lee (3rd Year).
All bookmarks are on display in the library so call in to have a look and keep up the reading.
Fifty transition year students participated in an introduction to law module last week. Barrister James Fahy presented information on the legal and judicial system in Ireland before getting students to act out a mock trial. Students thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this experience.
