15 Feb

Our week concluded as always with a very positive and uplifting assembly this afternoon as we celebrated the many achievements, deeds, hard work and effort of our wonderful students.

We spoke of the wonderful work over the past number of weeks in all classes as we explored the theme of Polar Exploration. It has been a learning experience and a joy to visit our rooms and see this at first hand. A special word of thanks to Rang a Sé who concluded our project/theme with a beautiful ballad documenting the life of the Ice Man Tom Crean. Maith sibh!

We also learned of excellent Jivers, Spikeballer’s and of the trojan work of the Green’s Schools and Active School’s committees. Well done we are very grateful to you all.

To conclude, well done to all our students but in particular to those chosen as Students of the Week. We hope you all have a lovely rest over your mid-term break and comeback refreshed for a busy conclusion to our term.
