In conjunction with The Schools Business Partnership our 5th year students made the short journey to Dew Valley Meats in Thurles last Wednesday. This transpired to be a most enjoyable and educational trip as students viewed operations in Thurles’ biggest processing plant where they were brought on a tour of the facilities and followed up with a questions & answers session. Feedback was most positive from all involved and our 5th year Business cohort are looking forward to subsequent visits where they will learn valuable skills pertaining to aspects of the working environment in companies such as Dew Valley Meats.
1ST YEAR SOCCER
Best of luck to our 1st year soccer team who make the difficult trip to Tipperary Town to confront St. Ailbe’s in a crucial match to determine who progresses to the next stage of the Cup. Training has been curtailed slightly with inclement conditions of late, but optimism is high having enjoyed a number of superb performances so far this year.
TIN WHISTLE CLASSES
There has been huge interest among our first year students as tin whistle classes commence this week during lunchtimes on selected days. Our budding musicians are looking forward to learning jigs, reels, hornpipes, polkas, slides, mazurkas, and O’Carolan pieces and will be afforded the opportunity to progress to concert flute at later stages if up to the challenge!
