Transition Year News


Transition year students started their year with a ‘bonding day’ in Glendalough National Park on August 30th.  The girls had a great hike around the park, enjoying a picnic on route.  A fun day was had by all.  It was a great way to start the year.  The TY students are now fully immersed in all their subjects including some new subjects this year including ‘Driver’s Ed’, Mandarin, Photography and First Aid’.  TY’s are busy designing their outfits for this ‘Junk Kouture’ fashion competition to be held in January 2018.  The TY Enterprise students have set up a ‘tuck shop’ which will be open at break time and lunchtime for the duration of the canteen being closed.


Rehearsals have started for this year’s TY musical production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.  Belle is being played by Kate Keaney and the ‘Beast’ is being played by Emily Bateman.  The musical will be on in Fatima Hall from 14th to the 16th of December.
