The power of tea.

This morning the 6th year students gathered together for a cup of tea and a chat.
Organised by the 6th year prefect team and Ms Clarke the sixth years took time to chat and connect in with each other before classes come to an end and exams begin. A huge thanks to Attracta who made all the tea and coffee for them. There were smiles all around as students returned to class:
“ …..this simple coffee morning meant a lot because it gave me a chance to relax with my friends during this very busy time, time to be together before the exams begin.”

Star Struck!

Our young social innovators attended the Dublin Tech Summit where Jordan Evans, NASA CEO shared  his insights and stories of building space rockets and modules that landed on Mars and explored space. He gave them an hour of his time and the stories from his extraordinary life working at NASA.


A Musical to Remember.

Well done to all of the mentors and students who produced a very entertaining, funny and moving extravaganza over four nights. The singing, costumes, staging and music were wonderful – a credit to the whole production crew.


Positive Mental Health Week.

Our great Student Council have organised a Positive Mental Health Week involving talks by Jigsaw, Friendship Circles, Reflections every morning, a Thought Box and a Raffle for Darkness Into Light. Well done to all concerned.


#Speakout Pride

PCS had two YSI teams competing in competition for YSI 2018 in Drogheda. ‘Let’s Get Current’  is an e publication by young people on political and current affairs promoting political and social responsibility among young people.

 

 

The second team promotes the recycling of abandoned bicycle into a simple ploughing mechanism which tills the soil using allow till method to prevent soil erosion and then spaces the soil for the planting of sorghum and maize.


Well done Aaron.

Well done to Aaron Cullen who was representing PCS in Waterford this weekend at the National Cross Country Finals. Aaron had a fantastic race. The course was extremely wet and mucky therefore very heavy underfoot. He placed 10th overall and just lost 9th place with 100m to the finish line. He is now 2nd on the reserve list to represent Ireland at the Cross-Country Internationals as the top 8 qualify. We are extremely proud of his hard work and his dedication to training. Thanks to Ms Malone and Ms McDonald for their mentoring.
