TY Science Workshop

This week we had a visit from Phil Smyth from RTE Science Hub. Phil will be doing a workshop with some of our Transition Year students. The workshop will promote science in everyday life.

French Penpals

Some beautifully illustrated cards which 2nd year French students created to send to their French pen-pals in Collège Chateaucoin, a junior secondary school near Angers in North-West France. Bon travail, good work!

Sci-Fest Prize Winners

Congratulations  to Sophie Moore, Shauna Phelan, Meabh Staunton and Kate O’Neill who received their certificates of outstanding achievement for their SciFest projects.

Short Film Workshop.

A selection of our Transition Year Students participated in a mini-movie programme. The student learned about and made their own short films. These short films will be shown at the Birr Film Festival this year. Many thanks to Offaly County Council and Julie Forrester for facilitating this workshop in our school.
