Well done Jan.

Jan Zacharias Garcia was one of the finalists in the Dublin/Wicklow region of the Junior Maths Competition run by the Irish Mathematics Teachers’ Association. He represented the school very well with his very happy and supportive family! He received a certificate for reaching the regional final. He is an excellent  young mathematician who enjoys challenging maths problems and is eager and willing to work on tricky questions which he’s never studied before.

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.
