5th Year Trip to Derg Isle Adventure Centre

Our 5th years were delighted to get the opportunity to have a day out at Derg Isle. They got to work on their team building skills and got to participate in many activities on land and in the water.  Thanks to Ms. Cunningham for organising and to Ms. Kyne, Ms. Collison and Mr. Halmaghe for travelling with the group.

From Farm to Fork

Out TY students this week harvested vegetables grown in our poly tunnel and used their skills to produce a variety of soups and hummus.  This was enjoyed by staff and students.

TY French and German language students participated in a webinar this week learning all about the skills of language learners and suitable college courses.  It featured contributions from language departments in Maynooth, DCU and UL.
