Sports Day 2017!

Sports Day 2017!

Sports Day took place in Iveagh Gardens on Sunday the 14th of May. It was an afternoon of great school spirit.  It was a day filled with sports, ice-cream and lots of sun. Even the girls who hadn’t won, found a way to have some fun. There was a sea of pink, green, orange and blue, everyone found something to do. There were sister races and happy faces. Sports Day is the best way to have some fun with everyone.

Thanks to all the students who participated.  On behalf of the students a special thanks to the Parents Association and the teachers who helped organise the day.  It was a great success.

Especially, a huge thank you to Ms. Crinion for orchestrating the whole event. She put a lot of time and dedication into the day and it was clear to see.

Well done everyone one on a super day.

The April House Event took place on Thursday 6th April.  

Each House Team had to listen to the House Committee to get their clues for the hidden eggs.  There was great excitement and sprinting around the grounds to get back quickly.

Carlingford PE Trip

Carlingford PE Trip

On Wednesday the 5th of April, all 2nd years were lucky enough to go to Carlingford Adventure Centre.

At 8 o'clock we set off. When we arrived we were put into groups. One group did the land activities and the other group did the sea activities and then we swapped over activities.

We put our bags away and the land based group set off. When we got there we put on our helmets and played a few warm up games. We then divided ourselves into smaller groups. The activity we did was called the Crystal Maze. There were a range of challenges to complete. My favourite was a spiders web (made from rope !).  These tasks were challenging but really enjoyable and fun.

When the challenges were complete we went back to the centre where we had lunch. The lunch of chicken curry and rice was delicious. After this we had a few minutes to relax. 

After lunch we participated in the water activity. We were all given our wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets. When everyone was changed we got our kayaks. The water was freezing but it was all part of the experience. We learnt the basic kayaking skills.

We kayaked over to a pontoon and then over to a beach, where we played a few games to keep ourselves warm. Everyone really enjoyed this. The instructors were really friendly and helpful.
Sadly it was time to go. It was a day we will never forget.

On behalf of all the second years we would all like to thank Ms. Peelo, Ms. Maverley and Sasha for accompanying us.
And a big thanks to Ms. Crinion for organising a lovely PE trip for us.

Visit from Cecilia Ahern

On 22nd March we were very fortunate to be visited by Cecilia Ahern.  She spoke to the girls about how she became an author, writing her first novel, having her novels published and about writing for TV.  The girls found her inspirational.  Thank you Cecilia.
