Success for our TYs at Trashion Fashion!

After months of preparation, more than a few fingers and thumbs glued together, and multiple battles with unruly straps, we were ready to showcase our recycled costumes at the Trashion Fashion Event

Local fashionistas were treated to an evening of glitz and glamour when the students of Louth showcased their couture creations at the seventh annual ‘Trashion Fashion’ event at the Carrickdale Hotel on Wednesday 23rd January. The fashion competition is open to all secondary school students in Louth. The challenge posed to students is to create a couture outfit of any shape and size made by the least couture of materials – junk! 

Six costumes were submitted by students from Transition Year in Colaiste Chú Chulainn into the event. The costumes which were made with a variety of materials including crisp packets, old examination papers, plastics, baby dummies and so much more!

 

We were delighted to have two winners in the event, and are ectremely proud of each and every one of the students who put so much work into getting prepared for the night.

The winners were:

Magdalene losses – best performance (Tara Woods, Mickey Doyle, Katie Farrell)

Standards set for young people – one of overall winners (Laura Jane Hearty, Sarah Hoey)

 

All of our costumes received very high praise. The team members include:

Sophie O’Kane, Ayo Adesanya, Ronke Amushan

Finn Duffy, Michael Dunne, Markuss Ogsts

Anne Reilly, Rose O’Brien, Alannah Murray

Hannah Reilly, Ly Dillon, Grace McEntaggert

Coláiste Chú Chulainn ag Comórtas Díospóireachta an Phiarsaigh

B'ócáid speisialta í an tseachtain seo nuair a d'fhreastail dhá fhoireann ó Choláiste Chú Chulainn ar Chomórtas Díospóireachta an Phiarsaigh don chéad uair riamh.  Thaistil dhá fhoireann, ceann acu as an Dara Bliain agus ceann acu as an Chuigiú Bliain go dtí Ceanannas agus go léir scoláirí eile a bhí ann chun tacaíocht a thabhairt. 

Chun tús a chur leis an oíche, phléigh an fhoireann as an dara bliain an rún "Ba cheart dúinn fáil réidh le ham coigilte sholas an lae!"  sa chomórtas sóisireach.  Bhí an-phlé acu leis na foirinn eile a bhí ag glacadh páirte sa chomórtas agus bhain an lucht féachana an-sult as an díospóireacht.

I ndiaidh sin, thosaigh an comórtas sinsireach agus ba é "Tugamaid aire mhaith dár seanóirí in Éirinn" an rún a bhí ag na foirinn le phlé.  Bhí a lán idir láimhe sa phlé ag na foirinn; seirbhís sláinte, taisteal saor in aisce, agus obair charthanachta ina measc.  Labhair na daltaí uilig go han-mhaith le muinín agus líofacht agus moladh iad go léir go hard ag na moltóirí ag deireadh na hoíche.  Bhain na daltaí agus na múinteoirí an-sult as an oíche agus tá muid ag súil go mór leis an chomótas an bhliain seo chugainn cheana féin! Comhghairdeas ó chroí le gach duine a bhí ann.

It was a special occasion for students of Coláiste Chú Chulainn and the Irish Department of the school this week when two teams attended the debating competition Comórtas Díospoireachta an Phiarsaigh which was held in Kells, Co. Meath.  Two teams, as well as their supporters, travelled to the competition which was held in Eureka Secondary School to take part in the junior and senior competitions.  

To begin the night the junior team discussed Daylight Savings Time and argued against the motion that it should be done away with.  The students, who came from a range of classes across 2nd year, spoke very well and made their points clearly and with passion.  Following that, the senior team made up of 5th year students argued in favour of the motion that elderly people are taken care of well in Ireland today.  The senior team made reference to the health service, free travel and the charity work that happens all across Ireland.  

The judges praised all the speakers and commended them on their confidence and fluency.  Teachers  and students enjoyed their night and are already looking forward to next year's competition.  Congratulations to all involved!
