November House Event - Geography and Science Quiz

November House Event - Geography and Science Quiz


On Tuesday the 14th of November we had our third House Event of the year.  One person from each class took part on behalf of their house in the Geography and Science Quiz Kahoot.  The event took place at lunchtime in the Assembly Hall.  Every house had great school spirit and all the supporters from the different year groups were very enthusiastic.

Well done to the G’s who won and were awarded the prize of a 25 euro one for all voucher.  The competition was very close with only a couple of points between first and second place.

We are really looking forward to the next House Event.

October House Event

On Thursday 26th of October we had the October House Event.  One person from each class was chosen to participate in an Inter House Pumpkin Decorating Competition.   All the teams were very creative and there were very impressive artistic skills shown.   As well as this there was great house spirit.   After a tough decision by the judges, the Bees were announced as winners and were awarded 50 house points. We are very excited for the next House Event.

Chemical Disposal

Following a routine audit of chemicals in the Science lab it was noted that one chemical required further investigation. The school followed protocol by contacting a chemical waste disposal company, the Garda Síochána and the Ordnance Corps to remove it. The Ordnance Corps and the chemical waste disposal company were satisfied that proper procedures were followed and were happy to return at the agreed time of 6 am Wednesday,18th October to safely dispose of the chemical. They removed the chemical from the premises and carried out a controlled explosion. At no time was there a danger to students or staff.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the operation for their professionalism and for ensuring the safety of our school community.
