IMG 0747The Leaving Certs have just arrived back from the annual Leaving Cert Retreat in Esker Monastery. Despite the rain the leaving Certs students enjoyed the two day retreat where they reflected on their lives, practiced mindfulness and learnt skills to help them cope with the challenges of life.  We each came home with a gratitude stone to remind us to be thankful for all the blessings we have in life. The students were a pleasure to be with and were a credit to their parents and their school.......

Email Print

On Wednesday the 18th of November, while the school remained in darkness, as a result of a power cut, our second year students headed to Dublin as part of their CSPE project to visit Dáil Eireann. The group was met and welcomed by Timmy Dooley T.D. at the main entrance and then brought directly to the Dáil. We had arrived just on time for the start of Leaders Questions and watched a lively debate between Micheál Martin TD and Taoiseach Enda Kenny. 

After the debate the group was brought on a guided tour through Leinster House hearing all about its history as well a seeing Seanad Éireann.
On completion of the guided tour the group was brought to an auditorium and got to meet and ask questions from Timmy Dooley, Micheál Martin, Pat Breen and Joe Carey.
A great day out was had by all and for all will remain in our memories for many years to come.dail

Junior Cert Religion retreat

IMG 9553r3rd Years Visit to Knock
As part of their Junior Cert Religion project, our excellent 3rd year students visited Knock, Co. Mayo on Friday 20th November. They experienced the peace, friendship and love of God there. 
The Story of Knock began on the 21st August, 1879 when, at approximately 8pm,  fifteen people from the village of Knock in Co. Mayo, witnessed an Apparition of Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist, a Lamb and cross on an altar at the gable wall of the Parish Church.
The witnesses watched the Apparition in the pouring rain for two hours, reciting the Rosary. Although they themselves were saturated not a single drop of rain fell on the gable or vision. There were fifteen official witnesses to the Apparition, most of whom were from the village of Knock and surrounding areas and ranged in age from just 5 years old to 74 years old. Each of the witnesses gave testimonies to a Commission of Enquiry in October 1879. The findings of the Commission were that the testimonies were both trustworthy and satisfactory.

TY -Sounds from Cork Pops Orchestra

On Friday, the  amazing TY3s , LCAs and a group of junior students, gathered together with our Living Scenes friends,  boarded the bus and  headed down to U. L.   to attend a concert of the Cork Pops Orchestra.  
In the concert hall, our balcony seats gave  us excellent views of the Cork Pops below playing everything from jazz and  classical, to  scores from musicals.   DJ Doshka joined the orchestra on stage, looping  and sampling his   electronic music.   The concert concluded with a sing-a-long with Voice of Ireland winner, Keith Hanley, who lead the audience through a medley of pop-songs and spirituals.
   If some of us came to the concert with little interest in classical music or orchestras, we left with new perspectives:
“The violinists were extremely talented.”
 “The drummer guy was groovy.”
“The variety of music showed the versatility of the musicians.”
“Being in the presence of musicians, instead of just hearing them through speakers, made all the difference.”  
Thank you to Ms. Behan for organising a great day out and thank you to our Living Scenes guests for joining us.
