As part of their Transition Year Chinese studies, our TY’s were treated to a fantastic meal in our local Chinese restaurant “Asian Harvest”. Our students who are doing Chinese studies with Mr. O’Gorman as one of their TY modules were treated to a delicious buffet Chinese meal and a great afternoon was had by all. Thank you to Mr. O’Gorman for organising and a special word of thanks to Aggie and all the staff at Asian Harvest for their hospitality.

TY Exhibition Evening

Our Transition Year showcased their talents and achievements at an exhilarating exhibition evening this week. The event, held in the school's sports hall, featured a diverse range of projects and work. Parents, teachers, and fellow students marvelled at the students' creativity and dedication displayed throughout the year. The displays allowed visitors to engage with the students' work, fostering a sense of community and pride within the school. A huge well done to all involved.

Well done to each and every one of you who represented the school so well on the day Ross Doyle Roche, Liam Flusk, Oran O’Sullivan, Jake Hughes Rellis, Seán Byrne, Evan Whelan, Riain Dunning, Kyal Byrne, Ross Farrell and Shane Monaghan.

It was a great day even though the weather wasn’t too pleasant, everybody enjoyed the day. Hopefully, the next time, we will have a winner.
