To qualify we had to send them our ‘Business Plan’ along with some pictures of our earring holders. By using recycled materials and frames we created custom made earring holders. Using a slide show we were the first group to present our product to those attending the competition (for which we got a special mention at the prize giving). Later on in the day we went for a private interview where we explained our product to the judges. Throughout the day we presented our products to students, teacher and members of the public, and also had some sales. We are looking forward to launching our product in the next few weeks.

Custom made earring holders will be on sale from now until the Summer Fair.

Thursday 16th March 2014 was a warm, sunny day, not as warm as Ancient Greece would have been but pretty good for Irish weather. 4R was having its double Classics class outside with Ms Potter. We had been studying the ancient Olympics in Greece as part of a six week module and, as a bit of a treat in our last double class, we went outside to re-enact some of the ancient Olympic Games. This also tied in well with Healthwise Week.

On Friday 7th February 2014 Ms Potter and a group of her 2nd, 3rd and 5th Year Classics students went to see a Roman comedy "The Swaggering Soldier" by Plautus. Classics students in Trinity put on this play which is on the Classics Junior Certificate curriculum.  The play is about an arrogant and vain solider called Pyrgopolynices who kidnaps a woman called Philocomasium.  Her boyfriend Pleusicles comes to rescue her and teaches the soldier a lesson in the process.  See student comments below:

Ciara Duffy and Luck Hackett (2nd Year students) really enjoyed it and found it very funny: 

"It was well produced with a very good script and plot.  The acting was excellent and the actors and actresses really got into their roles.  A lot of effort went into the costumes which really brought us back to Ancient Roman times.  The names of the characters were very long and hard to remember!  We didn't like the soldier, he was so vain and full of himself.  We found him irritating and were glad that he was punished at the end of the play which was very funny.  The audience was really gripped by the play. We are looking forward to studying it shortly".

Justyne Murnaghan and Elana Murphy (5th Year students) also really enjoyed the play: 

"It was great to see this play acted out after studying it for the Junior Certificate.  It was excellent and the acting was great.  It was our favourite topic on the Junior Cert course.  We remember acting out some of the scenes in class, ..I think the students in Trinity did a better job than we did though!  We are now studying Classics for the Leaving Certificate and love it.  It is our favourite subject.  We studied two Greek plays before Christmas: Euripides's "Medea" and Sophocles's "Oedipus the King". They were brilliant. They are tragedies and involve revenge, murder and incest so are vey different to Roman comedy!"
