TY NEWS

TY stu­dents in Loreto Bray had a busy week per­form­ing their drama plays on Tues­day, April 19, and Wed­nes­day, April 20. Four plays were staged. ‘Fol­lie That’ was done by TY1. The play fol­lowed a Dublin dance troop on a trip to Paris to com­pete in a dance com­pe­ti­tion. ‘No Body to Mur­der’ by TY2 was about an is­land ho­tel and it’s guests when it emerges that fugi­tive Pat Me­nace is on the is­land.

TY3 and TY4 staged the ‘Teen Com­mand­ments’, a play dis­cussing all the modern day trou­bles and events that many teenagers face. TY5 closed the show with their per­for­mance of ‘Il For­ni­cazione’, a play about an opera that goes hor­ri­bly wrong as the only mem­bers of the orches­tra to ar­rive were the lady tri­an­gle and the con­duc­tor.

Every­one au­di­tioned for their class play and started re­hers­ing dur­ing our dou­ble drama class un­der the di­rec­tion of Sean Leahy. We are very grate­ful for his guid­ance and all of the hard work that he put into each play. The plays were all a huge suc­cess re­ceiv­ing pos­i­tive feed­back from their au­di­ences on both nights. It was a thor­oughly en­joy­able show and a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for every­one in­volved.

MINI-COM­PA­NIES

On Tues­day, April 26, the in­ter­nal com­pe­ti­tion for our Tran­si­tion Year mini-com­pa­nies was held in the con­cert hall. Ten groups were se­lected from Fourth year by Ser­ena, the head of our lo­cal County En­ter­prise Board.

Five of the com­pa­nies had al­ready gone to the county fi­nal: The Sweet Light Can­dle Com­pany, Pic­ture It, The Let­ter Com­pany, Hy­drobot­tle and Adopt-A-Buddy. Five other com­pa­nies i.e Note It, Lockór, Bet­ter Bat­ter Jars, Cook­ies in a Jar and Sweets in a Jar, were se­lected from the re­main­ing com­pa­nies in our year to par­tic­i­pate too.

We be­gan the day by set­ting up our stalls in the Mary Ward APA where Ser­ena came around to judge them. Af­ter that in the con­cert hall we all did a three minute pre­sen­ta­tion, which she also judged.

There were four prizes as fol­lows; Best stand: Note It. Best pre­sen­ta­tion: Sweet Light Can­dle Com­pany. Most in­no­va­tive idea: Pic­ture It. Over­all win­ner: Hy­drobot­tle.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the com­pa­nies who par­tic­i­pated in Mini Com­pany 2016. Thanks to our teach­ers who pro­vided great sup­port and en­cour­age­ment to us in all our en­deav­ours through­out the year too.
