Senior Geography Field Trip

Senior Geography Field Trip

The 6th Year Geography Fieldwork took place on Thursday 16th October.

24 intrepid geographers and three teachers braved the rather damp conditions of Lugduff Brook in Glendalough to conduct their river study.

Despite the rather miserable weather conditions, the girls visited two study sites and conducted all the tasks required for their journal. Well done to the girls who worked so hard over the course of two days and produced an excellent standard of work. Special mention to the two brave souls who ventured forth with Ms Ryan on a dawn hike to the Miners Village on Friday.....and lived to tell the tale!!

Well done to all involved and best of luck to our 6th Years with their continued studies in Geography.

Readers' & Writers' Week - Monday 20th October

Ciara Geraghty
We were delighted to welcome author Ciara Geraghty to the school this morning.  Ciara spoke to the 3rd Year group about her 'late calling' to writing and the inspiration for her books.  She also treated us to a reading from her latest book "Now that I've found you".  Ciara had a very attentive audience who had plenty of questions and overall the girls thoroughly enjoyed the visit.  Thank you Ciara!

Spelling Bee
This afternoon was 'Spelling Bee' Finals afternoon.  What an amazing group of 'spellers' we have.  Well done to all who took part and keep taking part in the Spelling Bees - practice makes perfect!  Congratulations to our overall winner Beth Fuller, first Runner-up Rosie McCullagh, to Clodagh Prior, Aisling O'Leary and to our other participants in the 'Grand Final'.  Well done!
