Bless­ing­ton Com­mu­nity Col­lege

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -


Our Green Schools com­mit­tee has been work­ing hard to raise aware­ness of en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues in the last few weeks. Their motto com­pe­ti­tion had a huge amount of en­tries with the even­tual win­ning motto cho­sen from Sarah McKech­nie in 1st Year–‘To­gether as a team we can make our school green.’ It is proudly dis­played on the Green Schools no­tice­board and is be­ing used on all Green Schools cor­re­spon­dence.

The com­mit­tee or­ga­nized a visit from Eoin Mor­ton from An Taisce to de­liver talks to all stu­dents on Thurs­day 27th Novem­ber. As part of the Neat Streets pro­gramme un­der­taken by the school, Eoin spoke about Green Flags, re­cy­cling and other en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues that af­fect the school and its en­vi­rons.

The com­mit­tee met with him in the morn­ing and or­ga­nized the gym for the talks. They were on hand to help through­out the day. All year groups at­tended a talk and the event was very suc­cess­ful. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the com­mit­tee and their teacher, Ms. Jenk­ins.


As Christ­mas ap­proaches, peo­ple’s thoughts turn to presents and food. For the poor sec­ond-level stu­dent, Christ­mas also means tests. Re­vi­sion fever has taken hold with stu­dents study­ing hard. Our First Years find it es­pe­cially daunt­ing we have timetabled tests, su­per­vised un­der exam con­di­tions to be­gin the train­ing in exam tech­nique that is so im­por­tant.


Our 1st year CSPE toy ap­peal project is go­ing very well with a lot of high qual­ity toys wait­ing to find their ways to de­serv­ing chil­dren. The stu­dents are cur­rently de­cid­ing to which lo­cal char­ity they will do­nate. It is al­ways a plea­sure to see our stu­dents think of oth­ers less for­tu­nate than them­selves and to do some­thing mean­ing­ful to help.
