The history department entertained us all this week with games, projects and quizzes. The week ended with all students and staff dressing up as known individuals from history, contributing much need funds to our Ukraine appeal, €218 was raised. Many thanks to TYs for all their hard work and for helping to make History Week a great success.
Also as part of History Week, 2nd yrs went on a trip to the GPO.
2nd-year Oak and Elm were extremely fortunate enough to have spent the day out in the GPO for History today. When we first arrived in town for our trip, we were allowed to go to a nearby corner shop which was great. When it was our time to get shown around the GPO, we met our tour guide Ailish, she was very friendly and gave us a brief explanation of what the GPO was used for, we then got headphones which we then plugged into a device to give us an audio description of some of the key events that happened in the GPO while we walked around and looked at some fantastic artifacts from the 1916 rising. Lastly, we were taken into a room to watch a short film on the Easter rising, it was extremely interesting and we learned so much new information. It was a day to remember and I would really recommend the tour to anyone! Eiriu T, 2nd yr

This term has been action-packed and we have all enjoyed ourselves, while learning, immensely. As our Weekly News shows we have had much to celebrate, in academics, sport, and extra-curricular activities. Enjoy the Easter break and take time on Easter Sunday, a day of hope, to pray for an end to all war and conflict.
