TY EN­TER­PRISE

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ailbhe Flynn and Lau­ren Ryan who made it through to the Wick­low fi­nal of the mini-com­pany com­pe­ti­tion. There are 35 en­trants through from a wide range of schools across Wick­low so it is a great achieve­ment for them to have made it this far. The fi­nal is on March 8 in Cler­mont Cam­pus. We wish the stu­dents and their teacher, Ms Ly­don, the very best of luck.

IADT OUT­ING

Stu­dents from Mr Doyle’s MS Academy class and Ms Kelly’s Cod­ing class vis­ited the IADT on Mon­day to par­tic­i­pate in a brief course on sol­der­ing and pro­gram­ming. They re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and learned a lot about the world of pro­gram­ming. Aspir­ing gam­ing ex­perts, take note.

PAR­ENT-TEACHER MEET­ING

TY stu­dents and their par­ents at­tended the par­ent-teacher meet­ing on Thurs­day evening. Ms Ma­son gave an ex­cel­lent pre­sen­ta­tion on sub­ject choices, LCVP and col­lege en­try re­quire­ments and ad­vised par­ents in­di­vid­u­ally where there were par­tic­u­lar ques­tions. Par­ents and stu­dents then spoke to teach­ers from the dif­fer­ent sub­ject de­part­ments to find out about the ben­e­fits and chal­lenges of each sub­ject at se­nior cy­cle, and to an­swer any queries. Thanks to Ms Wil­son and all the staff and stu­dents who made this a very worth­while meet­ing.

SHOWJUMP­ING

Katie and Choe O’Sul­li­van com­peted in the in­ter-schools com­pe­ti­tion in Bar­nad­own this week­end. Katie came third in the Derby class and Chloe just missed out on be­ing placed in the 1.10 me­tre class. Well done, girls.

RE­CY­CLED CLOTHES

DCW stu­dents are busily clear­ing out their worn and loved clothes, shoes and bags to up­cy­cle them in a Green Bag col­lec­tion which is kindly or­gan­ised by the par­ents’ as­so­ci­a­tion. All stu­dents re­ceive a green bag to help in the clearout, and the bags may be re­turned to the school on sev­enth or March 8.

Once re­turned to Lib­er­ties re­cy­cling, the school re­ceive a do­na­tion for each bag col­lected. Thanks to the par­ents’ as­so­ci­a­tion for or­gan­is­ing this great ini­tia­tive.

TRAN­SI­TION YEAR TALK

Par­ents of third Year stu­dents en­ter­ing TY next year at­tended an in­for­ma­tion meet­ing on Tues­day night to hear about the TY pro­gramme and the kinds of learn­ing the stu­dents are ex­pected in. Emma Han­lon, Jes­sica Mer­nagh, So­phie Cad­well and Yas­mine Abba ad­dressed the au­di­ence with re­flec­tions on how much they en­joyed the sub­jects, mod­ules, out­ings and of course the school Mu­si­cal. Thanks to Ms Wil­son for or­gan­is­ing the event.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

Stu­dents from 1 Emer­ald vis­ited St Pa­trick’s church in Wick­low on Fri­day with Ms Gille­spie to mark World Day of Prayer.

EASTER EGG DROP

First Year stu­dents took part in our first ever Egg Drop. This was a fun ac­tiv­ity or­gan­ised by Ms Cremin and Mr O’Brien but the ac­tiv­ity of course had a math­e­mat­i­cal and sci­en­tific learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to it. Thanks to all who took part.
