Awards Night 2018

Awards Evening Goes Ahead Despite Events of Last Weekend
Thank you so much to our wonderful supporters for making our 8th annual Awards Night an extra special one this year.
Pelican Promotions provided us with 150 chairs to allow us to go ahead – and are also providing chairs again next Tuesday for the Leaving Cert Grad Mass. Thanks to Mandy and Shane for their generosity.
Paula Harrison, Mum to Orla and Rachel worked her magic to source 200 chairs from the Clans and Gary O Donoghue, Dad to the two football stars Hollie and Kellie both delivered and returned them in double quick time.
Yet another local club gave us the rest of the chairs we needed. Aidan Mc Ardle, Chairman of Roche Emmets offered us another 200, kindly delivered and collected by Martin Lavery, Dad to Una and Dearbhla, who helped with the loading and unloading!
Blooms donated the stunning floral displays which lifted the spirits of all who arrived that evening.
Des O Loughlin provided the audio visual equipment to bring Ms Mc Grath’s wonderful PowerPoint to life.
Dalton and Dash.ie generously sponsored a Chrome Book for our worthy Ethos winner Jolene.
Trend provided us with beautiful trophies and medals and our Sr Clare Memorial Award and jewellery for the Ethos nominees were Newbridge Silverware.
Ms Dolan thanked everyone for their support in a difficult week and reassured all that we will be back up and running in August in our own building again. She acknowledged the wonderful assistance given to us by DkIT and lots of other schools around town.
Interval acts for the evening were provided by Sixth Year Music students and Senior Council Members. Jolene Murtagh and Eimear Fealy performed a beautifully harmonised version of ‘For Good’ from the hit West End musical ‘Wicked’ Head girl Isobel O Reilly performed a poignantly appropriate song called ‘Rise Up’ which had the audience spellbound. Principal Michelle Dolan praised Isobel for her unceasing efforts all year for the students and the school.

 

Below are the results for the evening.

Poetic Voice 2018

After a highly successful competition last year our Poetic Voice competition returns for a second year. The competition will be held on February 20th next, time to be confirmed, and all are welcome. Last year our winner Laura Maguire spoke eloquently and hauntingly, in both the set piece, ‘After the Titanic’ by Derek Mahon and her own chosen piece, ‘James Connolly’ by Liam Mc Gowan. If you check out our Youtube page you will find her there.

We wish all this year’s contestants the very best of luck and we hope to see some parents there.

TY Report October 6 2018

TYs

The TYs continue to be extremely busy. Last week saw them continuing with their self development course which takes place each Thursday morning.
Using mentoring workshops and peer-based conversations “Create the Great in You” aims to provide young people with a space to explore how communication, collaboration and creativity can be applied to develop both community and relationships.
The girls are both challenged and facilitated to openly explore and express their passion, identity and potential.
The girls will grow in confidence, enhance their interpersonal skills and be more empathetic toward their peers. The series of workshops will culminate in a presentation of certificates to the girls on October 19th.

They also took the time to attend a play in An Táin based on women’s stories from WWII.

This week they headed for An Táin again, this time to attend Ger Carey’s stand up comedy routine on the lives of teenagers today. According to his website “Ger is fascinated by the way teenagers are passionate about stuff. The way that there’s no in-between, grey area with them. The way they wear their hearts on their sleeves and their favourite bands on their T-shirts. He knows what makes them tick and uses this daily knowledge to amuse and cajole them.”

The aim of the show is to get teenagers to laugh at themselves and appreciate the differences of others. Our students certainly enjoyed the experience. 

The big news in TY this week is that the Musical Production Committee has been granted the rights for Mary Poppins. The girls are thrilled to be taking part in this venture. Auditions were held today and the parts will be cast in the next few weeks.
