What a fantastic ‘artistic’ week – great fun and great learning. All first, second, third and fifth years took part in a full day of workshops throughout the week culminating in our annual Dress Up Day on Friday 28th October. This year workshops concentrated on areas such as pod-casting and music technology but also the usual favourites were back – African and Samba Drumming, Bodhrán playing, Circus Skills and Juggling to name only some.
The Dress-Up day, in appreciation of the centenary of the 1916 Rising, was to form a human tri-colour flag with different years wearing the Green, White and Orange which we attempted in the drizzle before all students and teachers took part in our annual Whole School Table Quiz. Thanks to Mr Ciarán Duffy for organising the week (again) and for all the staff who helped make this week run so smoothly for our wonderful students.
The SpinRowathon was also introduced this year as a charity fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society and we thank all the students and their families and friends who donated to this great cause. Thanks to Jimmy Stagg from Stagg Cycles Lucan who provided the bikes and rollers for the spinathon.
Enjoy the midterm break.
