1st years soak up history in Newgrange visit


As part of their History studies of pre-Christian Ireland, 1st Year class McVerry and class Roche visited Newgrange over two days this week.

The students were brought on a guided tour of the monument and then explored the Bru na Boinne grounds.

The students got to experience a recreation of the sun lighting up the chamber on the Winter Solstice and a few even got to follow the path of the light today from the floor of the inner chamber.

A very enjoyable day was had by all.

Class McVerry were accompanied by their class tutor Ms Cormac and class Roche were accompanied by their tutor Mr Callaghan. Thank you to their history teachers Ms McCarthy and Ms Doherty for organising the event and bringing the students on both days also.

We are delighted to announce the winners of our Reading Week Poster Competition for 2023. The standard of talent and creativity was outstanding. Well done to everyone who entered a poster. The overall winners are Ellen Birnie (Junior) and Naoise Murphy (Senior). Congratulations!

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
