Monday 4th December TY’s enjoyed some festive fun and cheer ice skating in Dundrum.
Thank you to our French Assistant Isee Guiste who gave a presentation all about the type of cuisine popular in her region in France (Provence- Alpes in the South East of France) to our 1st year Home Economics group. Through a variety of interactive games on both ingredients and dishes it gave students an opportunity through their Home Economics lesson to revise over key words they had learned so far in French classes. Isee made some delicious french treats for us to sample at the end of the lesson also.
As part of the delivery of our RSE programme to TY and 5th students, we had two Cancer Awareness presentations.
This year our theme is “Random Acts of Kindness”. Our school tree contains each of our students commitments to do one act for another person. A little goes a long way. Among the many activities and events, students and staff did a walk around our school to highlight the benefits of a little exercise to our well-being and were given some orange segments for a vitamin C hit!
The newly elected student council for 2017-2018 is now up and running and pictured here with Ms Clarke at their first meeting. A busy and productive year ahead no doubt.
