COUNTY ENTERPRISE AWARDS:
Congratulations to all our students who displayed projects at Thurles LIT recently for the Student County Enterprise Finals. The array of projects on display were of exceptional standards with schools from throughout the county being represented. We done to Business teacher Ms. Molumby on her guidance and diligence in preparing our students who competed in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior Categories of these competitions.
TY TRIP TO BELFAST:
The excitement was palpable last week as the Transition Year class of Coláiste Mhuire prepared to undertake an eagerly awaited trip to Belfast. In the company of Ms. Conroy & Ms. Carey a number of activities were undertaken as well visits to the renowned Giants Causeway, Titanic Centre, Carrick a Rede Bridge, The Falls & Shankill Roads and the Shopping centre of Victoria Square in Belfast City. This was particularly enjoyed by our non-national students who deemed it a fantastic and memorable experience, and for all, definitely a highlight in their busy TY calendar year!
TY SVP PROJECT:
Well done to the school committee of ‘Young SVP (ST. Vincent De Paul)’ from Transition Year on their successful clothes collection that was well received and supported by all our students and their families.
MAKE A BOOK PROJECT:
A cohort of 1st year students ventured off to Limerick as part of the Make A Book project. This involved students selecting different books individually and evaluating them. The end product of these collective evaluations were then displayed in a book produced by our young readers. Students were most receptive to this project and deemed it a positive experience and fun way to learn English. Huge thanks to all who made this project a success.
Our 1st & 2nd year students made the journey to Newport where they took part in a Handball tournament for ETB schools. The competitions included singles & doubles for Boys and Girls. Well done to Stephen Healy on winning the 1st year Boys singles competition and to Doubles pair Stephen Maher & luke Lanphier on their narrow defeat in the 2nd year Boys final.
