6th Year Higher Options at the RDS
The DCW Leaving Cert Class of 2023 enjoyed their visit to the RDS in Dublin where they met up with around 150 universities, colleges and information bodies from Ireland, the EU and the UK.
The Higher Options event offers all students in Ireland the chance to discover the full range of further and higher-level study and training opportunities that are available to them on completing their Leaving Cert.

TY Archaeology
On Tuesday the 4th years had a visit from Mark and Marta to learn about archaeology. The girls saw some interesting artefacts and learned about the work of archaeologists. Tables full of historical items were set up outside Fatima Hall and students had the chance to ask questions and get a feel for life as an archaeologist.

Homework Club will take place every Tuesday and Thursday at lunchtime in Joseph's 4. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students are welcome.

Athletics
The first Cross Country event of the year is taking place next Tuesday the 27th of September in Avondale. We've had two trials seeing old and new faces showing off their speed and determination to get ready for the first event of the season. The journey begins again for Ava Martin, who represented the school at the All Ireland's last year. Hopefully this inspiration can drive on the whole team this year and make it a memorable year in School Athletics.
