'Caith Amach É' proves to be a big hit with 6th Years

Sixth year students enjoyed an Irish drama workshop ‘Caith Amach É’ on Friday 7th February in the triple room. Caith Amach É is a smash hit comedy based on the Leaving Cert Irish Oral Picture sequences. Students thoroughly enjoyed the drama workshop, and had the opportunity to interact with one another ‘as Gaeilge’. Comhghairdeas to all and go n-éirí libh sna béaltrialacha! Many thanks to Neasa for organising this event. Both students and staff thoroughly enjoyed it.

TY celebrate Chinese New Year

On Wednesday, our wonderful Transition Year class hosted an event to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Their focus during this event was on the sharing of knowledge about the customs and culture of China. Each group had a stall which was focused on a particular aspect of China. The students at these stalls shared their knowledge with visiting students. On Thursday, TY students were treated to a visit from UCD Confucius Institute and took part in TaiChi and Chinese Folk Music workshops. Both events were thoroughly enjoyed by all and we wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year.

5 Tolkien Social Education Key Assignment

On Wednesday, December 4th, 5 Tolkien visited the local library to complete one of their key assignments as part of their Social Education class. At the library, they researched books and other resources on Dundalk's history. Rachael, Sarah, T.J., Briana and Holly found out lots of interesting information about the history of the Dundalk railway, the origins of Dundalk Football Club, the events happening in local GAA clubs over the last 40 years, the story of the sinking of the S.S. Dundalk and lots more. The students even got to look through the archives of the "Dundalk Democrat" and check out what was happening in Dundalk on the week they were born! It was a very worthwhile and informative afternoon and well done to all students for making it a very enjoyable trip.
