We currently hold two green flags the first was awarded for Litter and waste. The second flag was awarded two years later under the theme of Energy. We are currently working on our third theme:  Water.

 

 

 

The Transition year students make up the main body of the green schools committee, coordinated by Ms. Delaney and supported by Ms. O’ Farrell.

Drama Club

 

This term saw the emergence of Ardscoil Mhuire’s Drama Club.  All students were invited to join this after school activity.  Admittedly there were a few raised eyebrows.  “Would we be studying plays?”  “Would we have an audience looking at us?”  “Would we have to learn lines?”  “Has this anything to do with bloody Shakespeare?!?”  Needless to say students crept very slowly into the library on that first Tuesday.

 

Drama Club turned out to be nothing like what students imagined.  The emphasis is very much on fun and letting yourself go.  Various teamwork exercises had students tied up in knots (literally) while improvisation games sparked their imagination.  The mixture of physical activity and mind games combined to create much laughter and wonderful performances.

 

Drama Club will continue next September.  Everyone is welcome and no previous drama experience is necessary.  All that is required is an open mind and a desire to have fun.

Engineering Week

 

Engineering Week  was marked this year by Cook Medical sending two of their R&D Biomedical Engineers to visit our Science Department.  Melissa and Sarah graciously gave of their time to speak to our Third and Fifth Years about their study of biomedical engineering and to explain the reasons why engineering suited them as a career.  Their career stories and descriptions of their day to day life as researchers gave our students a rare insight to science in the work place.  Both Melissa and Sarah served as an inspiration to our students by demonstrating the opportunities, challenges, and successes for women in engineering. 

 

Their presentation ended with an unusual challenge… to make a prosthetic lower leg!  Our girls tackled this with their characteristic competitive energy and had an enjoyable and enlightening time!

 

A huge thanks to Cook Medical, who, as partners to our school, have been incredibly supportive to our staff and students over the years!
