Teachers are now preparing students for their exams by helping them with individual Study plans and recommendations on ways of preventing anxiety or stress as the end of year and State exams approach.
End of year Graduation:
Sixth year students their parents and teachers are invited to attend the end of year graduation ceremony this Thursday, 21st May. This is an evening to celebrate the nearing of the completion by the students of their time in Post Primary Education, the recognition of all their achievements and to wish them well as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. Students are involved with teachers in the production of what promises to be a joyous and celebratory evening.
Arts Appreciation Evening.
This took place last Friday May 15th and was a great success. Joy Gerrard impressed the audience with explanations and insights into her wonderful art pieces throughout the building. The sculpture by Richard Gough emphasising the transition from the old part of the school building to the new was unveiled. Student’s work was displayed throughout the school and hugely impressed all visitors to the school.
The Community at Heart from Killaloe put on a superb production of J.B.Keane’s, ‘The Matchmaker’. The actors performed brilliantly and the audience hugely engaged and enjoyed many moments of humour. A huge thank you to all those that attended and supported the evening. All proceeds will be used to fund student counselling services and the Autism Centre.
The school very much appreciates all the generous donations from many businesses in Nenagh including The Pantry, High B, The Peppermill and locally including The Yanks, The Green Bar, Heenans, Coolbawn Quay, Paddy’s and The Derg, Terryglass. Also Richard Gough generously donated a signed copy of the latest book from his talented son and writer Julian Gough. The students of Borrisokane Community College once again were outstanding in their efforts to create a warm and friendly atmosphere. They distributed canapies to the guests during the pre-theatre talk by Joy and during the intermission of the play serving their own freshly cooked cakes and refreshments. Well done to all involved and this once again highlights the importance of community involvement in school events.
