Comenius Maritime Project "Sea & City"


The Comenius Maritime Project  "Sea & City", a European inter-schools' project, is being overseen in Loreto College Foxrock by Mr Michael O'Flaherty and involves our 4th Year students.

What do we have to do?

  • Meet every Friday at 2pm in room A5.
  • Prepare a presentation about yourself to be uploaded onto a safe website – Twinspace on eTwinning website; include details from your application about why you want to be involved in the project and any links you have with the sea and maritime aspects
  • Work together to prepare a logo which represents the whole project i.e. includes the maritime aspect but also links to UK, Poland, and the Irish Republic (and France)
  • Each school will choose 2 best designs and put them on Twinspace for everyone from all 4 schools to choose the best design.
    The four Comenius schools are:

Loreto College

Nicolaus Copernicus High School
Brook Green Centre for Learning

  • Register on eTwinning when you are given access (username and password) and start loading your presentation (this can be a power point, or a video – but you will need parental permission first of all for these)
  • Start planning an exchange of Xmas stockingswith little treats etc. to send to partner schools with an explanation of our Xmas traditions
  • Plan a visit to Dun Laoghaire Xmas Market

The winner of this years Cathaoirleach cup (DLR TY quiz) and the title 'Brains of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown' is St. Benildus College, Stillorgan.

The Cathaoirleach Cllr. Carrie Smyth was on hand to present the trophy to the winning team who scored a whopping 36.5 points out of a possible 50 in what was an undeniably tough quiz.

Two teams were tied on 35 points resulting in a tie-breaker question.  The students were asked to state the length of the Great Wall of China.  The girls from Loreto College Foxrock were the closest earning themselves 2nd place in the process with the mixed team from St. Kilian's Eurocampus taking 3rd.   Many thanks to the students who took part.

Thank you also to Senator Aideen Hayden who was the quizmaster for the event.   Both Senator Hayden and Cllr Smyth were hugely impressed with the way the students conducted themselves and their intellectual talents.
