Great weather for the School Walk

May 23, 2012

On Wednesday, 16th May, we went on our school walk in the Wicklow Way. While we were there we had three stops. During the first stop we saw a really beautiful waterfall - Powerscourt Waterfall - and also a nice view of the Sugarloaf.  At our second stop we were down near a small stream. While we were walking up to the third stop Mr. Russell stopped us and showed us the Irish Sea. At the end of the day, Mr. Russell told us that we probably finished the walk in the fastest time. It was a very sunny day and the scenary was really awesome. (Click on thumbnail to open an enlarged version of image.)

The whole school went on a sponsored walk, in aid of Barretstown, up the Wicklow mountains. The day was a great success and luckily the weather stayed dry. It was a great day out that everyone enjoyed.

A morning of English Readings and Musical Interludes

May 10, 2012

This year I decided to celebrate the wonderfully imaginative and articulate work of our students by providing them with a forum to present them to the whole school. Each year group presented their best work. Unfortunately, their critical essays, which have been outstanding, have been excluded as their content wouldn't be suitable from an entertainment point of view. Watch the video highlights and listen to the podcasts to enjoy it all again.

Ms. Reynolds

Listen to the podcast of a 6th Year student playing Beethoven's 1st Movement of the Sonata in G Major, Opus 64.

The second podcast is of a 4th Year student singing Classical Vocals.
