COM­PUTE TY

Last week one of our stu­dents Mary Ann Kent, 4.2 was for­tu­nate to se­cure a place on the Com­puteTY course in Dublin City Univer­sity (DCU). She took part in the web de­sign­ing mod­ule where she learnt the tech­niques in­clud­ing cod­ing to pro­duce a web­site. All stu­dents re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate on the fi­nal day. She felt this course was very worth­while and was a good in­tro­duc­tion to com­puter sci­ence at Third level. (Mary Ann Kent) TY PRAC­TICE PORT­FO­LIO

As Port­fo­lio As­s­es­ment which takes place in May plays such a large part in the TY stu­dents fi­nal as­sess­ment and TY Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, this year it was felt the stu­dents should have a prac­tice or Mock Port­fo­lio As­s­es­ment to help them pre­pare for their in­ter­views in May. Many thanks to all the grand­par­ents who vis­ited the school to in­ter­view the stu­dents. The girls really en­joyed show­ing them what goes on in TY as well as the great ex­pe­ri­ence of pre­sent­ing their port­fo­lios. HOCKEY
