Doodle4Google - Loreto Foxrock Finalists attend Ceremony

TY Leadership Conference & TY Fundraising for Down Syndrome Ireland

TY Leadership Conference & TY Fundraising for Down Syndrome Ireland

On Friday March 11th, TY  students attended the Terenure Leadership Conference in the National Convention Centre.  There were a number of speakers including Colm Cooper, Bressie, Mark Pollock and Fr. Peter Mcvery.  The speakers varied from sports stars, to musicians, to business men and to a priest all delivering informative and heart felt speeches.  Overall the day was a success and we enjoyed it immensely.

A group of TY students went to Dunnes Stores in Leopardstown.  We were divided into groups and took 2 hour shifts of bag packing.  We got a bucket each and stood at the end of the tills, where we helped customers pack their groceries and collected donations in the buckets.  All the donations collected went to Down Syndrome Ireland in order to help to inform and support families with Down Syndrome family members.

All Shook Up!!
The TYs have been keeping busy with musical rehearsals nearly everyday after school and all weekend. We are looking forward to the show which opens on this Sunday the 13th March. It will run until 16th March.  It will take place in CBC Monkstown and tickets are still available.  Make sure you get yours fast!

Science trip:
On Friday 4th March 2016, a group of students from TY went to Science Talks in Trinity College Dublin.  We received a number of presentations from 2nd Year Chemistry students including 'The Chemistry of Mental Illnesses', 'The Chemistry of Sleep', 'The Chemistry of Life on Mars', 'The Chemistry of Superfoods' and 'The History of Chemistry'.  All presentations were interesting and entertaining and we all enjoyed our day out.

IADT:
As part of Science Week in IADT, TYs got the opportunity to go to some of the talks the college was presenting.  There were different talks ranging from “Sound and Vision” to “Creating your First Webpage”. They were all extremely enjoyable and we were given a free t-shirt promoting the week.

Healthwise Week:
This was a busy week for all the Mini-companies.  Healthwise Week is a whole school activity-based week where health promotion and fun and having a healthy lifestyle are encouraged.  Each Mini-company group were given a food to prepare and sell each morning before school- including pancakes, bagels, granola & yoghurt, fruit muffins and smoothies.  A great start to the day.   4O’s winning design was printed and available on t-shirts throughout the week…all about the Pace….  We performed “uptown funk” with the 5th & 6th Years as part of the whole school dance off!!  We also got the opportunity to organise an event for the week including the Movie night for 1st & 2nd Years, 'Walk in my Shoes' on Tuesday, a 'Silent disco' and a Zumba class given to two groups of 2nd Years.  We enjoyed the Zorbing on Tuesday also- great fun!!
