Transition Year Variety Concert
The TY students recently had their Variety Concert ”Wake Me UP” on Friday 14th November in the school hall. The show included a variety of sketches, group dances, solo and group singing and a group song at the end of the show. In more than one way all of the students took part in the show. Some performed on stage, worked on set, costume, props, curtains, stage management and some on sound and lights.
Doors opened at 6 o’clock and by 7 o’clock the hall was full to capacity. As we hadn't prepared for the huge turn out, more seating had to be arranged to accommodate everybody. The night was a great success and we thank all who helped out on the night and during rehearsals. All the students look forward to their production of Hairspray in 2014.
Trip to Delphi Adventure Centre
On the 11th September 2013 the Transition Year students went on a trip to Delphi Adventure Centre. They participated in many activities during their three day stay. Some of these activities included kayaking, raft building, forest and mud walks, highropes, pier jumping, rock climbing, abseiling, team building activities and Jacob’s ladder. These activities gave the TY group a chance to bond and enjoy themselves after a hard year of studying for their Junior Certificate exams. All of the students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and deserved it after their excellent results.
