LLN Pleonasm Treasure Hunt competition

Our Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) staff and student committees ran an entertaining and successful Pleonasm Treasure Hunt in November. This consisted of students searching the school for ‘Pleonasms’ posted throughout the school.

What is a Pleonasm? It is simply the use of more words than are necessary to express an idea! ‘Tuna Fish’ (no need for the ‘fish’ as tuna is a fish!)

Prizes were awarded to Cristina Houlihan, Irene Aniboh, Gabriele Kolesnikovaite, Sam Fay and Nicky Yep.

Our Second Years are thoroughly enjoying their trip to Barcelona! Thanks to Ms McKelvey and the team of teachers who have travelled with over 140 second year students to give them this fantastic opportunity. @ddletb @LccAssoc

Ryan Lally from Grá Pizza ran a great workshop today on pizza making as part of a wellbeing promotion, and also talked about setting up your own business and all about buying good Irish ingredients. Staff and students were delighted with the pizzas! #wellbeing #buyIrish @ddletb
