TY Camino Report

Congratulations to all our TY students who on Friday June 1st completed their 118km trek across Galicia in northern Spain. They walked from Sarria to the Compostela in Santiago over 5 days ranging from 19 to 29 km a day!

They had an amazing time immersing themselves in Spanish culture and improving their language skills. They all demonstrated incredible determination and were wonderful ambassadors for the School. What a wonderful end to Transition Year!

Emmanuel Concert

Emmanuel took place on May 2nd in the Helix theatre in DCU. Schools from all over Ireland attended including our 1st Years, 2nd Years and some of our committed TYs. The event is a celebration of liturgical music. The day began with a rehearsal and games in the church.  We really enjoyed taking part in the games and getting to know the other schools. This was followed by a dress rehearsal in the Helix. The show began at 7:30pm and we were glad to see support from teachers and parents. We were very lucky to have two of our own students singing solos, who represented our school.  We were also lucky to have a student present a reading. A lot of work and preparation went into preparing for the concert therefore we were glad to see everyone enjoyed it. It was a very rewarding experience, and we’re looking forward to participating again in TY.

Jump for Joy

On Tuesday 15th May we held our annual Jump for Joy competition. Every year our 6th Years take on the organisation of this with our Sports Coordinator. This year the students decided to give each year group their own theme and they had to dress up to represent that.

1st Years: Circus

2nd Years: Rock Chicks

3rd Years: 80s

TYs: Pool Party

5th Years: Pyjama Party

6th Years: Prisoners

The afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The girls competed in their teams of Athás, Misneach & Grá in an obstacle course, hungry hippos, sticks (long jump competition), skipping and lots of relay races. The winning team was Misneach! To finish off, we had the Staff v 6th Years Rounders match……. with a win by the teachers!

All money raised from the Jump for Joy with go directly to Crumlin Children’s Hospital.
