Miss O Dwyer, brings her second year Art Students up town to visually learn about the architecture and history  of Tulla as part of a project which will see  students create Ceramic pieces which will be exhibited in the area ,bringing contemporary  Art from the Art Dept to a wider audience, and returning locality based work to the community. Students will work on drawings and ceramics pieces based on their local environment. They will work individually on their artwork being  encouraged to experiment and reflect on their working methods. They will initially explore their locality through drawings which they will create both in sitiu and from photography. Students will then take inspiration from visits from artists , beginning with the 8th of December when the Art  Department will welcome the renowned artists Jane and Sally Seymour.

2nd Year visit to Dáil Éireann

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

CEIST Student Leadership Conference

On Tuesday 24th March, three students from the student council, Sarah, Bethan and Tomas, with their teacher Ms. Hogan attended the first CEIST Student Leadership Conference in St. Patrick's
College, Dublin. We were first welcomed with a speech from Dr. Marie Griffin and the lighting of the CEIST candle. While Ms. Hogan attended a session on mindfulness, the students attended two different workshops about leadership. In the first workshop the students discovered the different types of leaders we have nationally and internationally. In the second workshop, they discussed how to be a good and effective leader and the attributes associated with a good leader. After meeting up with Ms. Hogan, we attended a speech by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny. In the afternoon, we listened to presentations from other students explaining the leadership roles they undertake in their own schools.
