Roald Dahl Day - 13th September

Roald Dahl Day - 13th September

On Tuesday 13th September, we celebrated Roald Dahl Day with fun activities in class and at the library.  We had quizzes, games, film screenings and decorative bunting, and the highlight of the day were the golden tickets, hidden at random under seats in classrooms throughout the school.  And of course, there were prizes for those who found the golden tickets.  Thanks to Ms Lea, Ms Corcoran, Ms Barragry and Ms Keating from the English department and to Ms Morrissey (Librarian) for all the good times.  Enjoy below a selection of photos of the day:

One School, One Book Week

One School, One Book Week

This year, we celebrated our 'One School One Book Week' from 12 - 16 September.  Our book, No and Me by Delphine de Vigan was winner of the prestigious Booksellers’ Prize in France.  It is a timely and thought-provoking novel about homelessness that has far-reaching appeal.  Strong characters, a focus on friendships/relationships and a contemporary storyline add up to an engaging and interesting read. 
Reading took place each day for the last 10 minutes of each class, with many students finishing the book before the end of the week.  Overall it was a very successful variation on our earlier projects and both students and staff enjoyed the experience immensely.
