As the Hilary term draws to a close and the sun begins to shine, pupils are in holiday mood. Today the intrepid Mr Sherwood, Ms Kilfeather and Ms Caulwell are leading a mystery expedition which will involve much work and water. No doubt a tale will be told at the end of it all.
For the TYers the holiday period will incorporate work expeience, recuperation after a busy term and of course some time for fun. As the ad for Mars bars would say, 'work, rest and play.'
Pupils should not return to the college until the second week of the Trinity term i.e. Sunday 29th April for boarders and Monday 30th April for day pupils. We hope that they will find their work experience enjoyable and informative.
Next term sees the Transition Year Academic Prize. Many entries have been submitted and the shortlist for actual presentation on 3rd May is as follows: Sadhbh Sheeran, Siobhan Brady, Rebekka Kehrwald, Helene Peters, Anna Herrero Tejada and Marcia Kettern.
They will present their thoughts and findings on Organ and Tissue Donations in Ireland, Jacqueline du Pre, Factory Farming, Street Art, Genetic Mutations and Martin Luther King Junior.
We wish a happy and peaceful Easter to all.
