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.
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.”
The DES approved a new capital build 2019 with a preforming arts facility for the school and wider community. To supplement funding we are launching a clothing bank and mobile phone recycling facility. Use this facility and contribute to help make this ambitious dream a reality. pic.twitter.com/kRBYu884hB
