#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.


Class 3H Action Project to Fingal County Council.

 

 

On the 25th of January 2018, class 3H went on a trip to Fingal County Council in Swords as a part of our CSPE action project which is on local government. We went with our CSPE teacher Mr. McGovern. The action project is worth 60% of our CSPE Junior Cert grade.

At the end of this trip we felt like we understood more about about local government and that Fingal had taken on our ideas to improve the beaches.

Class 3H


Music Week.

Music week, organised by Ms O’Driscoll’s TY music classes, is well underway, with workshops in keyboard, singing, guitar and drums taking place during the week, as well as a very enjoyable and highly competitive table quiz for first years. Keep an eye out for the music related jokes and memes posted around the school!


Book Covers on Show.

Disturbing Blurbs in Artful Words.
So caught up were 2J Art in their wicked re-imagining of classic fairy tales that they almost forgot the graphical sorcery skills they acquired along their journeys. Like alchemists experimenting with their art materials, Mr. Williams’ enchanted designers honed their lettering and composition abilities, each developing a unique illustration style to bring their darkly beautiful characters to life.
A huge thank you to Ms.McWilliams for her wonderful fairy-tale inspired brief and endless enthusiasm, and congratulations to the students for bravely following their fearful imaginations.
Mr Williams.

Stockbrokers in Fifth Year.

Congratulations to Jacobo Belzunce, Maria Prieto, Tristan Gautheron and Aaron Dwyer who came second in the Bank of Ireland Stock Exchange competition. Well done to all 5th year Business and Economics students who took part and thanks to Ms Breen  and Mr Keegan their mentors.



Achieving Their Quota.

Congratulations to the Concern Debate Team who won their debate against an impressive Loreto On The Green team on Tuesday the 22nd of November, successfully proposing the motion that: “In order for women to access leadership roles there must be gender quotas.” Well done to the team of Evelin, Aodhan, Aaron and Laura and thanks to Mr Cogavin and Ms Bradley.
