KAN­GA­ROO MATHS

Once again, Glenna Swinand has been selected by the State Ex­ams Com­mis­sion as a high achiever in Math­e­mat­ics in the Ju­nior Cert and have in­vited her to par­tic­i­pate in the 2014 Kan­gourou sans Fron­tieres Ire­lande (KSF-IE) . This is a math­e­mat­i­cal con­test com­monly called “Kan­ga­roo Maths” and is un­der­taken by stu­dents in ap­prox­i­mately 50 coun­tries world­wide. The aims of KSF-IE are the pro­mo­tion of math­e­mat­ics among young Ir­ish stu­dents and the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and en­cour­age­ment of stu­dents with a talent in maths. KSF-IE is de­signed to get Ir­ish stu­dents ex­cited about maths .We wish Glenna ev­ery suc­cess in the com­pe­ti­tion. SPORTS

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the swim­ming team who par­tic­i­pated in the Le­in­ster Schools Swim­ming con­fined cham­pi­onships on Sun­day last ,April 6th . The team in the med­ley re­lay race came 3rd tak­ing the Bronze medal. The team par­tic­i­pants were Rachel Mil­lea, 2nd Year, and Ni­cole Humby,Ni­amh Fitz­patrick and Laura Whitty all 1st Years. Well done ,girls. 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.
