1st, 2nd. and 5th year Summer exam-timetable (here).
Transition Year: As announced at Assembly we have received the offer of three summer work-placements from the Technology Company, Openet. The places will be awarded by competition. You will pitch a case-study of a ICT type project you have developed: it could be coding, it could be web-design – whatever. You can build on an existing project or start a new one – you must show evidence of how the project developed and what you learned during the process of completing it. Judging of entries will take place Thursday 30th May. You must be available for work on the two weeks beginning Monday 24th June and Monday 1st July. Please indicate your interest by emailing portmarnocktyATgmail.com with the word competition in the subject line and your name and class only in the body of the email.
Athletics: Kate Hawkshaw writes…Our trip to North Leinster Athletic Competition held in Santry was a huge success! School spirit was high on the day, with a great turnout from the students, ranging from first years to fifth years. North Leinster was split over two days this year, and we achieved medals on both days. Every athlete put in a huge effort, and we took part in multiple events, and had two very full days. Our impressive tally of medals included 4 gold, 6 silver, and 6 bronze, with very impressive individual and team performances. We would like to thank Ms.O’Neill, and Mr. Ferrick for all their hard work put in to make the days such successful outings.

Ms. Deeney, Acting-Principal, writes …Thanks to everyone who helped out at yesterday’s fundraiser féte in the PE Hall for Action Ireland, Lesotho – especially to Ms O’Toole, Mr FitzGerald and Ms Maguire – and again at last night’s Variety Show. It was a wonderful celebration of our students’ musical talents with a fantastic audience of students, parents and past pupils. A huge thank you to Ms McGlynn, Mr Maynes and
to Ms O’ Driscoll, the overall coordinator of the show, with her excellent group of TY students. Thanks to Ms O’Toole, Ms Morrissey and Ms Sweeney for their help last night also. We will publish the final amount raised on the website soon. (All photos: Mr. Fitzgerald)
Pauline McGann from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution contacted the school to commend Transition Year students for their support of their annual collection. Pauline wrote of the students…”They were fantastic and we are very grateful to …them… for helping with our Mayday campaign. We have not totaled up the amount of money that they collected but as soon as I have the figures I will send it on…” The RNLI generously allow TY students to visit their station at Howth over five Wednesday mornings during the school year.
