TY’s Carlingford Trip

TYs couldn’t have had a better week for their trip to Carlingford Adventure Centre.  They had so much fun participating in all activities from Kayaking, Ax throwing, the Survival Course, Zip Lining, Laser Tag, to Volley Ball, and better still…S’mores Time!

TY Science

Today both TY Biology and Chemistry classes came together to plant tree saplings, Scots Pine and Silver Birch. The saplings came from Coilte through DLR and Fernhill. We researched the trees prior and then today got to plant them on the school grounds. The girls picked the best spaces where these tall trees will hopefully grow!

Friday Assembly

Fr. Pat joined us today at Friday Assembly where he held a short special service for us to mark the ‘Act of Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to Our Lady’ which Pope Francis is doing this afternoon.

Fr. Pat read the first paragraphs of the Consecration and explained why the Pope is making this Consecration in conjunction with his appeal for peace.
