National Tree week  

Students of 2 Red were generously given trees from the Irish Tree Council to plant on the grounds of the school for National tree week. The aim of the project was to promote Irish native trees as part of their module on stewardship, where students studied the importance of tree conservation. The students planted 5 rowan trees but also gave out trees to all second year students and staff to bring home and plant. The students were delighted to have contributed to the school environment in such a positive way.

Science Olympiad

Well done to Kaja Natanek and Liam Rush, 6th year, who took part in this year's Irish Chemistry Olympiad hosted by DCU. This is a chemistry competition that challenges Leaving Certificate students to apply their knowledge of Chemistry to much more advanced problems than what they would be tested on in the Leaving Cert. "Being faced with such difficult problems to solve gave us a clear idea of the standard of Chemistry at third level and though we did not get through to the next round, we had a good day participating".

Trip to Krakow

Last week 45 TY History students travelled to Krakow in Poland. Over four days students learned all about the history of the city, visited Auschwitz-Birkenau, Oskar Schindler's factory and the Wieliczka Salt Mines. A big thank you to Ms Judge, Mr Maher, Mr Campbell and Ms Byrne, who accompanied the students.
