Power(ful) Points from Ms Kernan’s First Year Class.

Ms Kernan asked 1N to present Powerpoints on energy and was electrified by the the high standard of the science projects.

Joel Kombara did his presentation on the general heading of ‘Energy’
Niall Heeney and Ben Mc Carthy were gas with their ‘Fossil Fuels’
Sarah O’ Flaherty and Leah Foran shone with ‘Solar Energy’. ‘Nuclear Power’ by Emile Meister, Dumebi Nwosu and Darragh Hogan got a great reaction and ‘Water Power’ by Lauren Upton was dam good. (Sad puns supplied by Mr Clarke). Well done to 1N and Ms Kernan. Click on the Powerpoints below to view them:

Chocolatiers for the Day!

Transition Year students attended Butler’s Chocolate Factory on Monday 15th May. Students got a tour of the production line, sampled some handmade delicacies and decorated their own chocolate elephant. A great chocolate filled day was had by all. Thanks to Ms Tolan and Ms McWilliams.

Congratulations #maplesotho

Heads Up!

Thanks to Ms Tynan for sending in photos of her first year sculptures.
They had to make a clay sculpture based around what was inside their head and the results were very impressive.
These two are a sample of their great work. Well done to Ms Tynan and 1D.

¡Enhorabuena chicos!

The second years who study Spanish had a talk by the Education Adviser from the Spanish Embassy in Ireland. He talked about different aspects of Spanish culture such as food, literature, history as well as discussing some facts about the Spanish economy. At the end of the talk the students had a quiz in groups to test their understanding.

The talk was greatly enjoyed by students. Here is a picture of the proud winners with their diplomas. ¡Enhorabuena chicos!
