TRANSITION YEAR NEWS The Transition Year group have gone off to Carlingford outdoor adventure centre for a week of physical activity following on their successful staging of the musical Grease last week. By all accounts the show was enjoyed by young and old alike so the students involved can be justly proud of their efforts-it took a lot of hard work but it was all worthwhile in the end. They are now enjoying a different kind of activity where the great outdoors beckons and the work is of a physical nature.
Again it is a wonderful opportunity for the group to bond together. We say well done to the TY Musical Group especially those who dragged themselves out of bed after the opening night to sing at the Wicklow Cancer Support Coffee Morning in the Grand Hotel last Friday . CAREER TALKS AT DCW
There have been a series of career talks in Dominican College since the start of the academic year. The school has welcomed speakers from IT Carlow, Griffith College, NUI Galway, Institute of Technology Tallaght and the Army. The two female Army officers were an impressive sight in their khaki army uniform.
The talks were attended by Fifth and Sixth Years. Those who attended found the talks interesting and informative.
They gained an insight into the courses on offer and how college life differs to school life. Fifth Years are starting to look seriously at their career options, whereas Sixth Years are reviewing theirs in light of their Mock results.
