Transition year is an opportunity for all students to try out new projects and ideas. Over the years our TYs have taken on many new challenges and projects. Here are a few recent ones.
Our TY GreenSchools Committee have been busy this term and have installed a new recycling bin system throughout the school. Watch the Video below to see what they have to say about the new system.
A group of TY students are involved in the Young Social Innovators project which en- courages young people to take an interest
in social issues of all kinds.
Watch their “Speak Out” video here.
The first fundraiser of the year was on Friday 22nd October. Just as the school broke up for the mid-term break, virtually the whole school population got dressed up for Hallowe’en. The annual Fancy Dress for charity was a fun-filled way to wind up the half-term. Students and staff alike got involved, coming to school in a vast array of fancy dress. We had Jedi knights, punks, Mario Bros, Grim Reapers, witches and wizards galore as well as dinosaurs, gypsies and pirates. Prizes were awarded to the best fancy dress in each class as well as to the best-dressed teachers, Ms Hynes, Mr Staunton, Mr Lynch, Miss Hall and Mr Geraghty. The group raised almost €800 for UNICEF Afghanistan Children’s Appeal.
The teacher photos are above- always good for a laugh! To see many more photos from the day look at the Gallery for 2021/2022.
Well done to Siobra O’Callaghan and Siofra McElduff who organised The Shoe Box appeal collection as part of Young Social Innovators. The girls displayed great organisation and team work skills participating in this worthy initiative.
